It's a story of a family, perhaps like yours, but one that lives in an ancient land of heroic fantasies, and challenges no mere mortal is likely to see. When he described his fair wife and lady, fighting a tentacled creature that found her way into her home, I could almost picture any of us ladies, wrestling with some kitchen project (down yeast bread! down!) probably armed with just some ordinary cutlery, not those magical tools of the Minivandians world.
He describes it like this:
The Minivandian is the warrior who values his home and hearth. He goes through the mundane day to day things with an eye to the adventures that they contain. She is the barbarian queen who fights the monsters of everyday tasks. These are their stories.The book sparkled with wit and charm, and honesty, I was taken back to some of the best of the early Terry Pratchett books , which carried with them the same creativity and humor. Intended for a young adult reader, this is a book I will re-read and happily pass on to my daughter, for this is a book that can be enjoyed by multiple generations, as they weave their own stories of family.
It's found on Amazon, so when you're doing some Christmas shopping (books make a great gift) add this one to any others you may be ordering.
