After reading both Fortune's Folly and the Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle, I find myself remembering the good young adult books I read while growing up including Lloyd Alexander's Prydain chronicles.

Other than those two things, The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle was an absolute delight to read. The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle is an enchanting read that connects a fantasy world of magic to a the modern day world. There are lessons to be learned, but they are layered so far down that the reader will not realize the bigger picture until later. I happened upon this book on the new books display at the library while picking out some books for my son. The cover caught my eye. I had never read anything by Deva Fagan before (this is her second book), but it sounded like a book I would like.

Prunella Bogthistle does not have one proper wart. Banished Prunella teams up with thief-turned-hero Barnaby the Brave to find the Mirable Chalice, the theft of which is believed to have cursed the Uplands with a variety of maladies. Not even one. And on top of that, her curses never work. Both Prunella and Barnaby harbor secret goals as they undertake their quest, but these ulterior motivations gradually take a backseat to their newfound friendship and their growing desire to free the people of the Uplands from the clutches of their evil queen. Spunky characters and surprising plot twists will keep readers laughing and turning pages.

All Prunella wants is to be a proper bog-witch. Unfortunately, her curses tend to do more good than harm. All Prunella wants is to be a proper bog-witch. When her mixed-up magic allows a sneaky thief to escape her grandmother's garden, Prunella is cast out until she can prove herself. It's hard enough being exiled to the unmagical Uplands, but traveling with the smug young thief Barnaby is even worse. He's determined to gain fame and fortune by recovering the missing Mirable Chalice.

Cute story, likeable characters, a bunch of interesting ideas And it was even more satisfying to follow Prunella as she slowly and stubbornly came into her own. 1. 353.

Cute story, likeable characters, a bunch of interesting ideas. Give me a whole bestiary's-worth amount of explanation on all the creatures in the book! I also would've really liked a map of the place, like some fantasy novels d. also liked that the world was like some sort of uthern US, since so many fantasies automatically go for something more Middle Earth-influenced. And it was even more satisfying to follow Prunella as she slowly and stubbornly came into her own.

All Prunella wants is to be a proper bog-witch. Unfortunately, her curses tend to do more good than harm. When her mixed-up magic allows a sneaky thief to escape her grandmother's garden, Prunella is cast out until she can prove herself.

It's hard enough being exiled to the unmagical Uplands, but traveling with the smug young thief Barnaby is even worse. He's determined to gain fame and fortune by recovering the missing Mirable Chalice. And to get what she wants, Prunella must help him, like it or not.

Really overdue review,lol. I wanted to give Deva Fagan's book some justice by giving it a review a year way back, because reading this book really made my day. If you're looking to read something that's adventurous and quite amusing, with a twist of romance that's never too sickeningly sweet, a heroine who's not the kiss-me-i'm-oh-so-cute type and would rather kiss and hug her pride rather than be caught with her hand in the love jar, a plot that though predictable, doesn't belong to the usual range of average stories, then this is a gem of a book.

What I loved most about it, giving it 5 stars is that Deva Fagan is not the all too magical and mightily popular author you can easily see in bookstores. I don't even see her name in the local library. And I find her story and the way she tells it as interesting, and a breath of fresh air. I read the first chapter and that got me into buying this book, and when I was reading it I had the slightest "fear" that later on she'd let me down. Well, she didn't, and as I went along it kept getting better. It's written for a much younger audience but it definitely can work for an adult who'd like some bit of fun from light reading. Reading it gave me smiles all throughout and I found it to be relaxing even. And if this book can do this for me, then it has a mark of good authorship.

I'm keeping this for children who will one day grow up old enough to join in on the fun.

The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle is a fantastical and whimsical journey. I enjoyed the story. After reading both Fortune's Folly and the Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle, I find myself remembering the good young adult books I read while growing up including Lloyd Alexander's Prydain chronicles. An excellent and wonderful read.

Prunella Bogthistle wants to be a proper bog -witch. She wants a few well placed warts on her face and the ability to curse like the rest of the Bogthistle's. When Prunella uses magic only good things happen. All bog-witches live in the bottomlands and its filled with magic. Prunella helps Barnaby, an Uplander trespresser, escape one of her grandmother's garden traps. Prunella's grandmother kicks her out. Prunella must prove before she can return.

Barnaby plans to become famous by finding and returning the Mirable Chalice to the Uplander Queen. Prunella joins Barnaby on his quest. She is determined to find Esmeralda's (an infamous bog witch) book of magic. Prunella believes with Esmeralda's grimoire, she will be able to curse properly and be welcomed back home.

On their journey, Prunella and Barnaby find themselves helping Uplanders. Something is out of sorts in each town they pass. Many Uplanders are too sick to get out of bed. Prunella starts to do a few other things that make her question her bog witch ness.

"Now that we were well on our way, walking under a cloudless blue sky through the green meadows, Barnaby had regained his airy cheer. Perhaps a bit too much cheer.
"Do you always whistle?" I asked.
"What's wrong with whistling?"
What was wrong was that his silly little tune made my steps bounce as if I were trotting across billowing clouds. I felt ridiculous. Who ever heard of a bog witch skipping along past meadows full of daisies and cornflowers? I forced my feet into a more appropriate stalking gait."

Prunella isn't bothered by dirt, instead of a hair clip she has a chicken bone. Barnaby does his best to stay clean and loves a good suit. The two are an odd couple playing off of each other very well.

From the beginning its obvious Prunella's has not mastered her magic. Its funny watching her try.

"I tried to slow my hammering heart. I was not going to let myself get riled up by a straggly snot of a boy. "It was supposed to be boils not oils!"
"But if it makes you happy, you did ruin my favorite jacket. "But I'll take that over boils any day."

I loved Prunella she's a misunderstood bog witch who wants to be loved by her grandmother. Fagan's writing is well layered allowing for Prunella's vulnerability. Visually this is a very fun read. Prunella and Barnaby run away from a crocodile in the bottomlands. (the cover). On their misadventure the two discover what's really going on in the Uplands. Barnaby has a story of his own, and its connected to the happenings in the Uplands.

I've read a few books this year that lost me with the ending. Whenever that happens I feel cheated. If a novel is going to turn on me I'd rather it happen in the middle so I can put it down. The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle was the complete opposite of that. The first part was very good though Fagan seemed to give a little more for the second half. This looks to be the first book in a series ( fingers crossed)

Gold Star Award Winner!

Prunella wants to be a proper bog-witch, but her curses end up helping instead of harming.

Her inability to curse allows a thief, Barnaby, to escape from her grandmother's garden and gets Prunella banished until she can do a proper curse.

Barnaby is on a quest to gain fame and fortune by finding the Mirable Chalice and returning it to the queen. Now, Prunella must team up with the very thief who got her kicked out of her bog if she hopes to prove herself and return to her family, but helping Barnaby find the chalice might prove more dangerous than she thought.

A tale worthy of sharing! With Fagan's combination of a bog-witch and a thief as unlikely heroes, THE MAGICAL MISADVENTURES OF PRUNELLA BOGTHISTLE is a brilliant tale of discovery and acceptance sure to entertain readers for years to come.
