The Longer Reason

Stuart Gibbs is a New York Times bestselling author known for the Charlie Thorne series, FunJungle series, Moon Base Alpha series, and Spy School series. 'Once Upon a Tim' is his first illustrated chapter book and the first in a brand new series. 

Tim is just a peasant, but he dreams big. He wants more out of life than to grow up to be a woodsman like his father. Unfortunately, the only route to success in the kingdom of Wyld is to be born a prince. Still, Tim is determined. He is brave and clever and always tries to do the right thing—even though he rarely gets the credit for it.

Then news spreads that Princess Grace of the neighbouring kingdom has been abducted by an evil stinx, and Prince Ruprecht needs a legion of knights to join him on his quest to rescue her. Tim finally has the lucky break he's been waiting for, the opportunity to change his station in life. And even though he doesn't know how to ride a horse or wield anything more deadly than a water bucket, he's going to do whatever it takes to make sure his dream becomes a reality.

Reviews

"Budding heroes defeat class and gender expectations as well as the occasional monster in this wry outing."--Kirkus Reviews
"A comic quest follows, with scares and laughs abundantly on offer...Tim's chatty, entertaining narration, which includes ample potty humour and the occasional vocabulary 'IQ booster, ' also touches on lessons about stereotypes and unconscious bias throughout the chatty, madcap adventure." --Publishers Weekly
