Reviews about The Naughty Nork (Moongobble & Me) (7):
Bolv
This series is a nice introduction to magic and adventures without the darkness or seriousness, like Harry Potter. My six year old loved these books and we went through them pretty quickly. Passed these on to another 6 year old boy and he loves them too.

This whole magical adventure series (Moongobble and Me) is great for readers in early to middle elementary grades. It contains delightful characters and some mildly scary situations, but with plenty of humor mixed in. The characters are mostly male, but girls will also be captivated by the magical world that is created by Bruce Coville. I would suggest starting with the first book of the series: The Dragon of Doom.

The Naughty Nork is 5th in a series of children's books featuring the hapless wizard Moongobble and his assistant Edward. In this particular book, the duo (along with a couple of friends) set out to break an ancient curse - and find out that the only way to break it is to first break another one! While this book could very easily be read as a stand-alone, it would be nice from an adult standpoint to have read the others in order first. There were a few references to things that had (I presume) happened in the other stories that would have been nice to know. However, I'm not sure most kids of the age this book is targeted for would really pick up on them or even care if they did.

The book is nicely paced for its audience - there are no plodding scenes where the travelers take days to get to their destination. Rather, the next chapter will mention something like "It took two days to reach Bogfester Swamp", and then the adventurers arrive and the fun begins.

The story itself is simple, but with enough fun elements (a talking toad, a wizard who isn't very good and who frequently messes up his spells by turning things into cheese) that readers should find themselves not only drawn into the story, but wanting to stay to witness the conclusion. It would be a good book to help a reluctant reader see how much fun reading can be, while still keeping the attention of those children who already enjoy reading.

My son, who is 7 ½ and in second grade, has decided that he quite enjoys the story. He has *voluntarily* chosen to read this book for the last few days during his reading time. I have heard him giggling to himself, and some of the story elements have made their way into stories he likes to write. I would say that this book (and its accompanying titles) would be good for 1st - 4th grades, depending of course upon the reader. It would also be a fun series for parents to read aloud to their children - the chapters are fairly short, and it's entertaining enough that everyone could enjoy it together. Overall, it's light fun for children, and anything that can help encourage younger readers to pick up a book can only be a good thing.

The amazing Bruce Coville has written a huge array of fantasy books for all ages and all interests.

His "Moongobble and Me" series is perfect for 5-7 year-olds. The books are entertaining, funny, and not so overinvolved that the plot is hard for kids this age to follow. Each new adventure has something to offer, and "The Naughty Nork" is no exception.

Edmund, Moongobble, Urk the toad, and Oggledy Nork return to try to undo the Oggledy curse laid upon the Nork and his brother, the Rusty Knight. The group encounters the Old Woman of the Forest Of Night, sarcastic squirrels, and a new threat known as "the Dangly-Boo." As always, these beloved characters find danger and excitement, and risk the effects of Moongobble's unreliable magic (and his tendency to accidentally turn things into cheese).

Fans of the series will enjoy this installment. Readers who have not yet discovered the series are encouraged to begin with the first book, "The Dragon Of Doom," and work their way through. You won't regret it!
I have two sons, ages 6 and 4, who enjoy bedtime stories. We began this book on the heels of E.B. White's classic Stuart Little. Both books are essentially fantasy stories but have little else in common. In fact, only one is and will continue to be considered a classic.

That said, this wasn't the first fantasy book read to my sons at bedtime. They had already enjoyed Dragon Rider and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

The Naughty Nork is about Edward, a young boy and central character, who lives in a medieval world of knights (the Rusty Knight), magicians (Moongobble) and monsters (Oggledy Nork among others). His quest is to break a spell and along the way he encounters many odd characters. Here's an excerpt from Chapter 13 that illustrates the choppy writing and annoying names:

It was the loudest BOO! I had ever heard.

Snelly screamed.

At the same time, a huge chunk of blue goo fell from the tunnel ceiling onto her head.

It had to be the Dangly-Boo--what else would dangle from the ceiling and shout "Boo!" like that?

Moongobble hurried back to where Snelly stood. I was already at her side.

"Get it off!" shrieked Snelly. "Get it off, get it off, get it off!"

"Mmmmm," said the Dangly-Boo. "Nummy!"

"It's eating her head!" I cried.

"Am not!" yelled the Dangly-Boo. "Just eatin' the majik! It's nummy nummy nummy!"

According to the book's jacket, the intended audience is children ages 6-10. This series might briefly entertain your child but I can't imagine it would take more than one night's reading to complete this book.

In conclusion, The Naughty Nork is a thin soup: a dash of The Lord of the Rings, a dash of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and plenty of water to stretch it out. In fact, although the story ends on page 107 it is a deceiving milestone. The large type and pencil illustrations easily account for 20 pages. The story still manages to stutter with abrupt chapter endings and beginnings as well as annoying names (a Dangly-Boo dangles and says "Boo!").

By the second chapter of Stuart Little my sons cared about the titular mouse like he was their own brother. By the second chapter of The Naughty Nork my sons showed no interest in Edward or his quest.
