This conclusion to the trilogy, The Quest for the White Duck, was a very satisfying read. There are some great visuals in this book – an elevator with a different monster to defeat on each level, a forest of fire, and of course the bridge between worlds makes another appearance. Our hero, Gideon, is again confronted with a quest, this time to save the world once and for all from the horrifying Agnes, who comes into her total power on “her day”. But before Gideon embarks on this quest, the bridge to the pantry in his house reopens, and his experiences when he crosses back to his own world give new meaning to the phrase “You can’t go home again.” All the significant threads woven throughout the first two books are neatly wrapped up by the end of this book, and Gideon even gets the girl – sort of. Jack Checkijian was again the reader, and his wonderful story-telling style and ability to get the most out of the humorous situations in the book is a definite plus. I don’t think reading the paper book would be nearly as good!
It was nice to find a trilogy which got better with each book! Gideon has to get to and defeat the evil Agnes before her day. The obstacles and monsters mount as he gets closer to her. But will he overcome with the help of friends, the girl he wants, and his sister, the white duck? Be prepared to snicker, snort, and guffaw throughout this fantasy farce!
Narrator Jack is back giving voice to this madcap bunch and increasing the fun exponentially.
