Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

Another fun and hilarious story. All the characters are very amusing, all of the time. The narrator is great, I think his performance is perfect. To fully appreciate this book, you have to read the previous 4, but they are all well worth it. I love the series and hope it continues!
