    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 conuer 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 altruisticHis 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 worstTiuri is brave No Make that bold—often foolishly so Although to be fair no fault can ever be found If ever there was a uintessential example of will power aside from Frog Toad “Cookies” that is Tiuri conveys it Wise beyond his years he is also oddly naïve 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 his beloved king; beginning at sunriseTiuri’s abrupt departure meant sacrificing what he had worked towards his whole life all sixteen years of it His decision seems reckless and a bit ridiculous But things aren’t always as they seem and this cunning theme cuts through narrative cleverly guiding Tiuri as he encounters a plethora of peculiar people during his travels The Letter for the King reads like an instant classic While the fiction is fresh the feel is familiar Mystery and intrigue magnificently merge with action and adventure appealing to all senses The colorful characters encountered keep loneliness at bay and Tiuri on his toes 11 year old me would have read this book over and over and overThis review was written for Buried Under Books by jv poore

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewIt’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 toTiuri 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 pattern that’s often repeated good guy meets another guy at the right time and place repeat but it’s the message behind it that struck me than anything else It’s wholesome and light and welcoming It feels homey and nice There’s definitely a hint of the nostalgia about it that I miss in modern fantasy stories Tiuri is developed enough that you care about his uest and want him to succeed He’s the very definition of ‘pure at heart’ and his emotional development and strong friendship with guide Piak is nice to see unfold It’s not going to appeal to everyone as the plot is simplistic but fans of ‘old fashioned’ fantasy should give this a go

    35 stars from me475 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 1962This is uaintly 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 readersMy son is not new to fantasy and he uite enjoyed this Aside from the story he loved the included map and black and white illustrations done by the author It was uite an accomplishment for him to tackle a book that comes in at just over 500 pages but the story moves along at a nice pace that ended up making the length less daunting for him

    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 muchI won't forget this book that is for sureI am glad I found this book in my school library a few days ago This is beyond my imaginationI 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 surprisingAfter 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 beautifulI ridiculously love it I learnt so much from it gosh I just adore it It doesn't feel old or boring It's awesomeThe characters are all males most of the time guys that shared the same age with me right now The story is about a journey of Tiuri a young man that ran away on the night before he could be the king's knight for a secret mission given by strangers On his journey he met a lot of people become friends with so many people and face so much danger The story tells about how he discovered a lot of things about life about himself about the worldSome sentences here punch in a huge impression in my heart like the time when Tiuri finished his mission and a wise clown from the neighbour country told him a story of a guy who went on a journey to chase the end of the rainbow for he believed that the end of the rainbow would be the most beautiful place on earth However l after the long trip he found nothing He was disappointed but then he thought about the journey he had how he met so many awesome new friends beautiful sightsand a lot of happiness he realized that the rainbow is not the most important thing Thee beauty and values he found in his journey that is the most important This book is crazily awesome I hope my son or daughter will read it one day and feel the same thingThis book gave me a lot One of the most inspiring book ever I also hope you'll consider reading it too even thou the cover of it might not look that interesting haha Happy reading and God bless your journey

    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 2015It's the story of a suire 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 uest with unseen enemies all around him but with unexpected friends as wellIt's sweet actually So old school it will remind you of the type of book about knighthood you could not put down as a kid A simpler world of good and evil don't you know An antidote to the gray confusions in our timeMemory Lane anyone? I suspect reluctant readers and fans of all things medieval will love it

    A very solid classic linear fantasy without any supernatural elements You know who to trust and who not the secrets are easily guessable and the end is satisfying The perfect escapist read for a difficult time

    Ahoy there me mateys  I received this young adult fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review  So here be me honest musings I always be interested in fairy tales from other lands  This translation caught me eye because the author was born in Indonesia imprisoned in a Japanese internment camp in WWII and then moved to the Netherlands  She published this book in 1962 and it won the Children's Book of the Year Award and was subseuently translated into sixteen languages  Apparently it is also becoming a Netflix series  So I had to know what the hype was aboutAnd sadly I have to say that I don't really get it  The story follows a boy named Tiuri  He was standing vigil on the night before becoming a Knight when he chooses to leave the chapel in order to deliver an urgent message  What was supposed to be a simple task instead becomes a uest to deliver a message to a king in another landThis book is a fairly straightforward and simplistic tale where the young suire is always meeting people at just the right time to help him and nothing bad really ever happens  Tiuri is supposed to be 16 but comes across as being much younger  His naivete seemed to make him like ten or so  He is honorable and makes friends wherever he goesUnfortunately there was no real tension and I was pretty disconnected from the story  It was a uick read even though the time dragged when actually reading it   The world building wasn't that exciting either  With slow pacing and not much action I was tempted to not finish this one  I did finish it but didn't really like it and will not reread it  I wish it had been betterSo lastly Thank you Pushkin Children's BooksCheck out me other reviews at

    This is a prime example of a book that needs an introduction The original Dutch edition of The Letter for the King was published in 1962 by an Indonesian survivor of WWII Japanese internment camps and is considered to be a European children's classic 50 years later it was finally translated into EnglishSo how does it hold up? Poorly when you consider how the English edition was marketed I found it on a YA shelf with a shiny cover promising the epic adventures of a 16 year old suire Sounds like YA right? What was inside was an intensely linear plot with zero moral complexity character development or twists The villains are uniformly murderous and come from Evilland Eviellan women exist solely to feed Tiuri though one gives him some chain mail and there's never a difficult decision not even a wrong turn on a road The writing does absolutely nothing for me though that's hard to judge from a translationHad I been faced with an edition that started with a formal introduction to Tonke Dragt who seems very interesting and the history of Dutch children's lit I would have had a better frame of reference for reading and perhaps enjoying the book However given the way this printing was presented I would advise readers after a children's medieval adventure to pick up recent MG books like The Ruins of Gorlan or First Test instead They're still fairly straightforward but at least there's something going on in terms of plot and characterIf you are an adult determined to read the translation save it for reading aloud to kids under 10

    I had the urge to read this book after I finished the Netflix series and god was I surprised They have NOTHING in common except that there's a boy named Tiuri whose mission is to deliver a letter Well I actually enjoyed the book a lot because it didn't have the annoying female characters and the magic elements Romance makes everything complicated and cringy and reading about Tiuri's and Piak's strong friendship was much entertaining
