Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer is a kid’s story by Aldo Fynn. It’s geared for ages 8 to 12. Iggy Rose is horribly bullied on a daily basis, even by his teachers. After having his once possession, a ring, taking by King Naysayer, he finds out who he really is and winds up going on fantastical adventure.
The story is very imaginative and well written. You sympathize with Iggy right from the start, being that he seems to be the only person with any sort of moral compass. Everyone else thinks its okay to lie, cheat and do whatever they want. Since he is so drastically different, he is bullied as a way to break him enough to conform…and for the bullies own personal amusement. He is affected in the beginning but as his character develops, he realizes that the bullies were wrong and he gains confidence.
All of the other characters were also well written and developed. The plot moves along well too. The illustrations by Richie Vicencio are also very good and help bring scenes to life. I started out reading it my daughter, but she’s a little young for it right now. There is a little bit of language in it, but it’s nothing bad.
Overall, the story was very entertaining. I don’t think its appropriate for very young readers, but it’s fine for older ones. The book is available in both paperback and ebook on Amazon.
