Clifton Chase is the latest target for bully Ryan Rivales. But after he finds a mysterious arrow in his closet, he takes Ryan's bet to see who can hit the target. Ryan nails the bull's-eye, but Clifton's piece of junk arrow sails out of sight and when he finally finds it, something isn't right. Somehow, Clifton has been magically transported back to 1485 England, where he meets two princes bullied by their tyrant uncle who locked them in prison to steal their throne. Only after Clifton learns the true meaning of friendship, bravery, and sacrifice can he help the princes escape and find the courage to face his own bully. Befriended by a dwarf, a mythical bird called Simurgh, and a cast of comical characters, Clifton's adventure through medieval times is perfect for boys and girls of all ages, and the young at heart.
This was definitely for children that won't be driven crazy by inaccuracies. It was cute, especially being set partially in my town, but common misconceptions about the medieval era are replete throughout the book.
The male actor speaks so softly that you had volume issues. If I could hear him, the woman narrator was much too loud.
