In a distant, marshy corner of a peaceful and prosperous kingdom lives a hideous, deadly monster—or so the tales say. No one takes the stories of the Ickabog too seriously until the king decides to ride to the marsh to prove, once and for all, if the legends are true.
This was a fun read, despite all the lies, fear, and otherwise terrible things that happened. Very lighthearted and hopeful, the story emphasized learning about others before judging them, spreading kindness, and looking out for the wellbeing of everyone instead of just yourself.
