This is the second book in the Tales of Fontania with The Travelling Restaurant Jasper s Voyage in Three Parts being the first The ueen and the Nobody Boy continues with the irreverent humour of The Travelling Restaurant and expands our knowledge of Fontania into Um Binnia an underground city threatening war against Fontania The greedy and awful Emporer Prowdd on is trying to capture the Golden Dragon Eagle who is necessary to the passing on of magic to young ueen Sibilla 12 years old and not uite magical yetThis story is Hodie s story Hodie is the nobody boy who has no parents and is an unpaid odd job boy at the palace He becomes disgruntled with life at the palace not surprisingly and makes the decision to move on Hodie s eyes turned watery he was utterly sick of the Grand Palace and all its gossip Oo babies not sleeping safe We need stronger magic Oo Fontania needs a royal family that pays attention to its magical abilities Oo what can the king be doing in his workshop I hope it s magical experiments Magic he scoffed to himself How could magic exist in a world where a boy s father was here one day but gone the next without a word How could it exist in a world where a boy didn t know a thing about his mother Well he d learned to live without parents and he didn t need the Grand Palace either especially if the palace didn t need him It was high time he left here He would go south Only as he is leaving he hears footsteps behind him Hodie didn t want company and strode faster The boy caught up puffing Boy said the boy I knew I d catch you Hodie s mouth dropped open It was the ueen Sibilla is fed up with everybody watching and waiting for her magic to appear and has decided she will leave with Hodie whether he likes it or not Along with Murgott the pirate chef from the Travelling Restaurant who has become Corporal Murgott in this book Hodie and Sibilla travel to Um Binnia overcoming danger along the way and discovering new strengths Sibilla is also forced to consider a few home truths about how her subjects view royalty Sibilla kept both hands on her cap How would democ ra what improve the Emporer Hodie put his hands over his eyes Any moment she would give herself away They d all be in trouble Democracy muttered the ogre is even better than having lazy King and little girl ueen Murgott drew in a sharp breath and glanced at Sibilla The ogre continued Democracy is when people spend time arguing about what is best not just say Hoorah for Emporer to his face and heaven save us all especially ogres behind his back The story is told with a very present authorial voice almost a story telling with authorial asides such as Hodie also heard that the King and ueen s mother Lady Helen actually said the Royal Swear Word It s in very tiny letters at the end of the book Nobody must see you look at it For my own part I wonder if the tongue in cheek humour throughout detracts from the wonderful fantasy and fantastical inventions and settings in the book The reason that fantasy worlds can work is because they become utterly believable in a suspend disbelief kind of way The author s presence in the story reminds you that she is making it all up and the irreverent tone undermines her world a little This is different to the asides for example of Bartimaeus in the Jonathon Stroud series where the teller of the story is a character from the story and therefore his irreverence is entirely convincing But this is just a ponderingThis book is great fun and appropriate for children from about 8 years and up While it is not necessary to have read The Travelling Restaurant to enjoy this story it does help you to understand the characters of Jasper Sibilla and Murgott a little Nominated for the Junior Fiction Section of this year s NZ Post Children s book awardsLinks to Teacher Resources and an interview with Barbara Else the author

I really wanted to like The ueen and the Nobody Boy the cover is great and the premise intriguing And for the most part I did enjoy it But I also found it unusually slow for a children s book for me to get through and I often felt as though I were missing something like background information or other explanations The ueen and the Nobody Boy is described as a stand alone companion to The Traveling Restaurant Jasper s Voyage in Three Parts but I do wonder if perhaps reading The Traveling Restaurant first which I did not would help with understanding The ueen and the Nobody BoyAlthough the book is technically a fantasy I would recommend it to children who are interested in adventures or mysteries The concept of magic is a central plot point but the actual action of the book doesn t involve all that much magic or other fantasy elements It does however involve uite a lot of adventure flying through the air on a train escaping from an enemy city distracting giant poisonous toads and mystery Where are Hodie s parents Will the ueen develop magical abilities Where are the missing treasures Note I received a digital copy of this book through NetGalley

I chose to read this book because I have all the others in the series and I liked them I enjoyed it for the same reason I enjoyed the others it was creative and compelling and all about my favourite character from the first book ueen Sibilla I learned that no matter where you come from or what you do you are still worthy and you never know what might happen such as how Hodie was the unpaid job boy and then turned out to be the ueens mother s best friends child So in a way he was royal too A character that was interesting to me was Murgott He was fiercely protective of the ueen unafraid to speak his mind and brave and somehow was kind even when he was being brutally tough This book won the IBBY NZ Honour Award For Writing White Raven and NZ Post Children s Book Honour Award
