Three royal children (Celeste, Jude, and Torrin) meet their eccentric (great??) Aunt Maggie. She’s an inventor who takes them on an adventure.
- Aunt Maggie might be my favorite character.
- Side note: Not sure if it was a narrator choice but Celeste was pronounced rather oddly.
- The narrator did an okay job with the story. I had it going at 2x speed, so the slow factor didn’t really bother me.
- Totally kid-safe story. The solution to the problem was rather heartwarming, but the reason for the conflict could have been stronger.
- Maggie’s cool creations are fun to learn about.
- I question some of the parenting skills of the king and queen, but that’s neither here nor there.
- Probably the opening for a longer series featuring the MCs.
If you enjoy children’s fantasy stories featuring princes and princesses, check this one out.
