“…this novel is highly recommendable to any fan of

Mortimer is the best squire in Sir Emberly’s troops, but his liege refuses to recommend him for promotion to knighthood. When Mortimer demands to prove his knight-worthiness, Sir Emberly charges him with an impossible task–finding a wonder in five days. With the help of his faithful mare, a scatterbrained wizard, a frog prince and a very special vegetable, Mortimer creates his own wonder–the first dragon to ever breathe fire! How much trouble could a fire-breathing creature cause anyway? Mortimer certainly finds out, and discovers along the way that being a knight is more than being talented with a sword.
“Written in a fun and exciting style, To Find a Wonder is a treat for any young person or adult. As you travel with Mortimer and his motley band of companions, you’ll laugh out loud and run in fear right alongside them. Enhanced with beautiful illustrations, this novel is highly recommendable to any fan of fantasy or even just a lover of a good laugh.” —Long And Short Reviews, Young Adult
“Absolutely adorable book!! It sucked me in with humor and beauty, couldn’t put it down till I had finished, then had to go back in for more! =) Wonderful work!” –K.Carlson, Washington
“To Find A Wonder was enjoyed by all my children aged 5,7 and 9. With interesting, funny creatures and characters to keep the children entertained and a plot that gently drew us forward into her world, we were left wanting more stories! What about that Frog Prince?! What’s Mortimer’s next adventure? It’s a great introduction to Jennifer Carson’s world and imagination.” –Anne, New Hampshire
“Jennifer Carson masterfully weaves a sweet and powerful story about a squire discovering what it takes to be a knight. Young squire Mortimer wants nothing more than to be a knight, but his liege refuses to knight him unless Mortimer can return with a Wonder, in 5 days no less. Knowing that most knights never find a single Wonder through lifelong quests, Mortimer heartily agrees and takes his trusty mount, Lady, on the journey of a lifetime. Not only does Mortimer return with multiple Wonders, he creates one or two of his own along the way. He also learns the power of friendship, loyalty, and honor. Memorable characters such as Percival, the fire breathing dragon; Goon, the minstrel; a bumbling Wizard; and a frog prince pepper this lively story. Kids, young and old, will enjoy the adventure. “May your heart be true and your sword be loyal.”–K. Asseslin, Massachusetts
