    Upon discovering a character I admire and adore, I often aspire to become that character Emulate a new role model, envision greater goals and dream of different worlds to conquer In this case, though, I would never set myself up for that fall Merely a human being, a perfectly plausible person Tiuri is genuinely good And kind I believe that Tiuri is truly and actually, altruistic.His epic journey to deliver a message of monumental importance took place many years ago A mission that today could be as simple as send , was an adventure only for the courageous and strong then Traveling alone, on horseback at best stumbling through the forest by sheer will, hiding from the knights who considered him a murderer and a thief, at worst.Tiuri is brave No Make that, bold often foolishly so Although, to be fair, no fault can ever be found If ever there was a quintessential example of will power aside from Frog Toad Cookies , that is , Tiuri conveys it Wise beyond his years he is also, oddly, na ve A sincere listener, Tiuri ponders then proceeds Complexly concurrent, he has an uncanny ability to act instinctively But I ve buried the lead Tiuri should not even be embarking on this endeavor Moments before he fled his kingdom, fleet on a stolen horse, with the furious owner following Tiuri had been locked inside a silent chapel, reflecting upon the duties he would perform as knight to...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.It s been a long time since I ve read a story that manages to capture the spirit and emotions of an epic adventure, but The Letter For the King manages to do just that It s full of secrets, missions from strangers, and the feeling that you can accomplish anything, be anything, that you want to.Tiuri is about to become a knight when he s given a task by a stranger He must deliver a letter to the king And on his way to do this, he meets a wonderful and colourful cast of people good and evil, who will help or hinder his mission It s a very traditional fantasy tale, that encompasses a long journey and a naive and pure hero at the heart of it The writing is simple, without any nuances or subtleties to the text, and the story itself follows a p...

    Ach war das s Vorneweg Dieses Buch habe ich schon einmal als Kind gelesen und es hat mich begeistert Damals habe ich noch nicht so viel gelesen, deswegen hei t das wirklich was Deswegen habe ich mir das Buch noch einmal gekauft keine Ahnung wo das alte Buch ist und habe es jetzt nochmal gelesen Meine Meinung.Obwohl ich jetzt doch ein paar Jahre lter geworden bin, hat mir das Buch noch genauso gut gefallen wie damals Der junge Tiuri soll am n chsten Tag zum Ritter geschlagen werden, nur bittet ihn in dieser Nacht jemand um Hilfe und so bricht er zu einem Abenteuer auf Tiuri ist wirklich ein herzensguter Junge Er ist 16 Jahre alt und sein gr ter Traum ist es ein Ritter zu werden wie sein Vater Nachdem er seinen geheimen Auftrag angenommen hat, scheut er keine M hen um sein Ziel zu erreichen und dabei w chst er st ndig ber sich hinaus.Auf seinem Weg begegnen ihm einige Personen Manche von ihnen sind vertrauensw rdig, andere eher weniger Teilweise ist aber nicht von vornerein klar wer I welche Kategorie f llt.Mir pers nlich haben von den brigen Charakteren die grauen Ritter und Piak am besten gefallen Man wird fast schon in die Handlung hineingeworfen, denn es geht gleich spannend los Danach ist Tiuri nat rlich auch...

    Oh, give me a sec to let my tears drop This book is beautiful The story inside feels so real It feels different It almost feels like Tiuri, the main character here, sits across the room telling me the story himself, and help me learnt so much.I won t forget this book, that is for sure.I am glad I found this book in my school library a few days ago This is beyond my imagination.I had no expectation when I first saw this book I thought to myself that maybe this is another freakish classic tale, written with so much art and deep thoughts and evil mixed in But what I found is surprising.After a few pages I realized how this book feels so pure and unreal but real at the same time How this book did nothing but touching its readers and send them great values of life that they learn by themself It is a book for kids. but it is an awesome book Oh let me cry for a little bit , for this book is beautiful.I ridiculously love it, I learnt so much from it, gosh I just adore it It doesn t feel old or...

    3.5 stars from me4.75 stars from my sonI read this with my 10 year old son for the kids bookclub he belongs to through one of our local independent bookstores It wasn t one I had previously heard of, although it is a Dutch classic, where it was originally published in 1962.This is quaintly written old fashioned chivalric fantasy which would provide a nice entry to the genre for middle grade and young adult audiences It s an older book, and reads that way, but it nevertheless has a simple appeal that keeps it fresh enough for modern readers.My son is not new to fantasy, and he quite enjoyed this Aside from the story, he loved the included map and black and white illustrations done by the author ...

    As YA goes, this is a 5 star plot It was written in 1962, apparently, and the new translation is coming on 25 August of 2015.It s the story of a squire on the eve of becoming a knight who does NOT become a knight because he makes the fateful decision to answer a call for help One thing leads to another, and before long, this kid is on a quest with unseen enemies all aro...

    Die Geschichte an sich fand ich sehr sch n berlegt, aber mir war da einfach zu wenig Action und es war sehr langatmig Ich musste mich ziemlich durchqu len, ist wohl einfach nicht so meins

    First released 50 odd years ago in the Netherlands, this is a wonderful story of knights and adventures written by Tonke Dragt why it took so long to be spotted over here it s sold over a million copies and be translated is beyond me From the outset, when Tiuri is tempted from his night s vigil out of the chapel by a call for help, I was hooked There was something about Tiuri, the use of limited third person wonderfully translated by Laura Watkinson and the style of narrative that reminded me of the first Harry Potter book Whether it was this idea that the world felt very real from the start or that there was something in Tiuri s character was drew me in as much as Harry did, I don t know but I knew that I couldn t stop thinking about the story when I wasn t reading it I wanted to know what happened next and I cared for Tiuri and his good friend Piak The story takes place within two neighbouring kingdoms who have been at peace since as long as anyone can remember but there are whispers are a growing army to the south who threaten to destroy that the people of Dagonaut and...
