Sir Seth Thistlethwaite and the Soothsayer's ShoesBook - 2010
The world of Seth Thistlethwaite is full of adventure that makes his everyday routine anything but. Dreary, dark, dank castles. Kung Fu Fusiliers. Biting bushes of bumbleberries. And a saber-toothed...sloth? Seth is no ordinary kid -- indeed, he is SIR Seth Thistlethwaite, and along with his best buddy, Sir Ollie Everghettz, he leads The Mighty Knights of Right and Honor. Together, they embark on adventures high and low, to and fro, day and night, or at least as long as holidays, weekends, curfews and supper time will allow. All of which suggests that maybe Seth and Ollie ARE ordinary kids, but ones possessed with extraordinary imaginations. In the sublimely self-created world of Thatchwych, they are gallant adventurers up to any task. But can these errant young knights contend with the scheming Prince Quincy Poxley of High Dudgeon and collar his latest theft -- The Soothsayer's Shoes? It seems the prince has nabbed the footwear in an effort to spread his own version of the sooth -- that's "truth" to you laypeople -- all across his kingdom. Will Seth, Ollie, their horse (who's really a dog named Shasta), and the saber-toothed sloth Edith-Anne be able to resist the dangers of dog-eating bog frogs, fire-breathing bats, elephants ants, and invisible voices to save the day? This series debut is a dizzying, demented, delightful drama that thrives on witty wordplay, animated alliteration and tricky tongue twisters.
