Format: Paperback
This book is a compilation of the first three books of the Xanth series. It is great for people who want to get started on a series, but don't have the patience to stop the story long enough to buy the next book. With the first three in hand, you can easily immerse yourself in this magical world without setting foot in a bookstore.
Xanth is a land where everyone has a magical talent. The first book tells of a quest where a young man named Bink searches for his talent before he is exiled to Mundania, where magic does not exist. Clever puns and witty dialogue make up for the slightly sexist themes. A great read.

A very funny magical land Dec 31 2013
By Gabriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This 3 story compiliation is a terrific introduction to the wondrous land of Xanth. What make's Xanth so enchanting is that Mr. Anthony has packed it with amazing creatures and truly interesting characters. And they are all hysterically funny. The writing is quite family friendly, so the pre-teen set can enjoy these stories just as well as any adult. In fact, if you want something nice to read as bedtime stories, you could use this book to fill a child's imagination with dreams of magical people and fabulous landscapes. It is a fun read that makes you wish for more. Luckily, Mr. Anthony has made that an attainable wish because he's written many more Xanth novels. Enjoy!

Very happy! July 20 2013
By Sunny65 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read these novels when my son was an infant... Now he's 23, around the age I was then. He is enjoying the strange and wonderful world of Xanth!
The book itself came to me in a very expedient manner, and was in gently handled condition, just as promised. I am very pleased!

Classic July 21 2013

Format: Paperback
This was a book my dad searched for for a very long time. The original book he owned contained the same 3 stories but had a different title. He was very happy to read it again
A Great Palette Cleanser June 29 2015
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was introduced to comedic fantasy through this series. Also puns, oh lordy the puns...
A great book for YA readers and adults alike, looking to clear their palette from the slog of reading some heavy duty, bludgeon of a fantasy series or novel, like SoI&F or even LoTR. The books are light hearted full of mirth, and puns. So many puns, some good a few great, but most terrible, yet they work within the confines of this book.
