There is a magical kingdom set on a magical island, long ago cursed to be forgotten forever. The kingdom is called Wendtmurhoefen, quite the mouthful to pronounce, but it does exist. And, like the legends of Camelot and King Arthur, Wendtmurhoefen has its heroes, knights in shining armor who make it their goal to rescue the princess. That is if they can find the princess. In Bryan Beaunoyer’s Welcome to Wendtmurhoefen: Long Days, Short Knights, the welcome mat is always laid out for those who are lucky enough to stumble upon it. The most recent hero is none other than the king’s knight, Sir Gilderlilly, and his newest friend, a trusty unicorn named Horace. Sir Gilderlilly appears a little short in stature to be a knight, but everything in Wendtmurhoefen appears a bit different than what one might expect. There’s an adventure afoot and Sir Gilderlilly and Horace must rescue the missing princess and the missing knights of the royal court – if they can find them.

Bryan Beaunoyer’s Welcome to Wendtmurhoefen is the first book in a new series. Full of magic and mayhem, adventure and mystery, the plot unfolds like the telling of a great legend, a fantasy and a fairy tale all in one. The author uses descriptive narrative effectively to set the stage for the adventures. The characters are well-developed and dialogue, though used sparingly, helps move the story along. Like the myths and legends of King Arthur and his round table at Camelot, Sir Gilderlilly and his magical adventures will hold young readers’ attention right to the very end. And that’s not all – there’s more to this story than what can be read in one book. Sir Gilderlilly isn’t done yet. And neither is the magical kingdom of Wendtmurhoefen – that is if it can be found again and restored to its former glory.
