Iggy and his friends set sail for the Rose Kingdom. But Iggy isn’t sure if he has what it takes to really be a prince. Well, he’s about to find out…
When the Lucky Rose 2 blasts off into space, Iggy meets the Rose Star and literally has an out-of-body experience. And that’s just the beginning. His adventures include confronting a hungry shark face-to-face, dancing in a live-or-die talent competition, and battling a blue dragon with very clean teeth.
And when Iggy finally makes it to the Rose Kingdom, Queen Victoria refuses to give up the throne. If Iggy wants to become ruler of the Rose Kingdom, he must enter the Tower of Decisions. Only problem is, very few people make it out alive…
Do you enjoy reading books where the main character is victorious over the bullies? In Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer, with Iggy you discover who he is, where... or should I say why... he washed up on the shores of Naysayer as an infant. Iggy has grown up in the kingdom of Naysayer where the "building had such a miserable air, and was so dreary in its appearance, that even the sun refused to shine down on in." The children of the kingdom lived at the academy and were trained to be bullies, untruthful, and rather rotten. Iggy was so lonely... he just didn't fit in, he didn't even "smell" like all the others. Even a cockroach would not befriend him.
With the help of a Napoleon (a crow), Captain Bartholomew Swell, Miss Blackfeather, Professor Jones, and Henry O'Henry Iggy discovers the truth about his heritage, his kingdom, and his ring... which by the way that worthless, self-centered, evil King of Naysayer took off of poor Iggy's finger... In just the nick of time, Iggy gets his ring and... Well, you will need to discover and enjoy the chaotic adventure for your self... I will say that Iggy's first quest is rollicking good.
In Prince Iggy and the Tower of Decisions, you will be on board the Lucky Rose2 as they sail for Iggy's home, Rose Kingdom. As the lost prince, Iggy and his people will need a period of adjustment. Iggy's newest quest will be reclaiming his throne from his aunt Queen Victoria (the same lovely aunt who killed his parents). As Iggy and his guardians navigate home, the Rose Star begins blinking on and off, on and off, off... this could be disastrous until the Professor begins decoding the star's code. Of course at Rose Kingdom everyone is afraid and troubled, well that's not completely true... Queen Victoria is a bit more occupied with the discovery that her nose has fallen off.
Now that Iggy and his guardians know what the Rose Star is saying, HELP!, they must set aside their plans of reclaiming the throne of Rose Kingdom. Such an "uplifting" journey begins. Did you know that stars can get bored? Well evidently they can, and so it was with Rose Star it was having an " existential crisis." Should Iggy grant the star's request? What if the star turns itself off? What is and will happen to Rose Kingdom? Will the rat, excuse me I mean Clarrise be allowed to stay on the Lucky Rose2?
With that type of kindness all heroes have in their heart, Iggy agrees to switch places for a short amount of time with Rose Star. Not a smart idea. Rose Star is so hungry for all things human... well let's just say plans for reclaiming the throne get put on hold for awhile. Once Iggy fools Rose Star into switching back, the quest for the throne is progressing. When I say progressing, I mean there are various levels in the Tower of Decisions that must be conquered before Iggy can be accepted as the Prince of Rose Kingdom.
The best news for Iggy is that his wicked aunt, Queen Victoria, must go through the tower at the same time...
Enjoy discovering the levels of the tower, would you be wise in your decisions?
