This unforgettable debut embraces the heroic tradition of The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Treasure Island-with a twist: it’s written entirely in rhyming epic verse, making it a thrill to read aloud with a child!
As Prince Martin admires the ancient steel in the castle armory, he longs for a sword of his own. But the King decrees his son must prove himself first. The boy gets his chance when the caw of a crow alerts him to trouble in the forest. From the safety of the trees, he spies four terrifying villains bent on kidnapping an innocent victim! And the only thing standing between predator and prey is a courageous stranger-who could sure use a hand. Armed only with his wood staff and a rock sling, Martin faces the hard choice:
Should he help or go home? The boy had to decide! And just how much help could a mere kid provide?
Featuring stunning full-color illustrations, Prince Martin Wins His Sword is a classic children’s book about a boy prince’s trials and how he learns the true meaning of courage, sacrifice, grit, and friendship.
With a great quest, high-stakes adventure, lovable heroes, and a mesmerizing cadence, this first entry in the new Prince Martin Epic children’s chapter book series is sure to delight!
