“A joustingly jolly good time.” –Kirkus Reviews
Nobbin Swill returns to solve another mystery in the third book in this hilarious middle-grade series that has two-color illustrations throughout!
Nobbin is still Prince Charming’s assistant, and Charming needs all the luck he can get to win the tournament at the King’s Jubilee. While searching for a new good luck charm, he finds a goose who follows him around wherever he goes, who he names Marge. But his father gifts him with a new charm, his mother’s handkerchief. Where before he was clumsy and bumbling, now he is swift and confident.
The night of the royal ball, he meets a maiden who seems to be as interested in the lost and found as he is, but Marge splashes punch on her and scares her off. However, Charming realizes that he must have offered her the handkerchief to clean up her punch, and now he’s left without his good luck charm right before the tourney. Will Nobbin be able to find the maiden and the good luck charm in time for Charming to win the tournament, or will he be thwarted by some wicked stepsisters, Rumpelstiltskin, and a mysterious black rider who suddenly enters the tourney?
