The Puzzle King by Nina Cordelia Craft

9781608601493_Cover_Thompson.inddJourney to the Kingdom of Muse where the Puzzle King and his subjects enjoy putting together puzzles.  But King Falmore has been so busy working on puzzles, he hasn’t made time to find a queen.  Calling for the help of his sorcerer, Sorbo, the king instructs Sorbo to find him a queen–a queen who loves puzzles as much as he does.

Stumbling upon a book in his massive library, Sorbo soon discovers it’s not a book at all, but a golden box filled with millions of puzzle pieces; and Sorbo is certain he has the answer King Falmore is looking for.  As everyone helps the king to put together the largest puzzle they have ever worked on, it soon becomes clear that Princess Daisy, the future queen of the Kingdom of Muse, has been trapped within the puzzle and only a person who truly loves her can put her back together again and break the curse.

What a fabulous first book from debut author Nina Cordelia Craft!  In this unique and fun adventure, an entire kingdom is caught up in the search for a queen to rule alongside their beloved king.  Based upon a story that the author created for her grandchildren, Craft has written an engaging and captivating story that all young lovers of fantasy, kings and queens, and puzzle solving will enjoy.

Hillie Dijk provides the charming cover art and inside illustrations for The Puzzle King.  The cover art is stunning and the thumbnail can’t hope to do it justice.

This is a must read for young people and at only $9.95 it is an excellent value.  I highly recommend The Puzzle King and look forward to Craft’s next book, The Puzzle Princess
