"Puckweed Soup: A New Tale to Tell" is a story full of imagination, excitement, adventure and whims. The book opens with Noah being acknowledged on stage by his school principal as one of the inventive writers in the Wizard Willard's Writing Contest. Noah is nervous that he has to go on stage to collect his certificate of participation. The story takes a twist from there where Noah is transported to a world of adventure. He is joined by Reggie the Rhino, his sister Ariel and Willie the Wee Wizard of Windom. They are also joined by Ariel's best friend Belinda in the adventure to Windom. The excitement continues when they meet Princess Tai. Princess Tai wants to rescue her castle from her greedy uncle who wants to get the diamonds in the mine close to the castle. Her greedy uncle sends Princess Tai's father on a wild goose chase so that he can take all the diamonds.
I liked the whimsical feel of this book. It is a kind of story which every child can relate to and come up with, because of their highly imaginative abilities and the capability to daydream at any hour. The story progresses very well without losing the tempo. The adventures and the excitement are whimsical. The excitement continues when they meet Princess Tai. Princess Tai wants to rescue her castle from her greedy uncle who wants to get the diamonds in the mine close to the castle.
