Prince Roger sets out eagerly on a quest and finds a few adventures, a lot of friends, a damsel or two in distress (not!) and himself, in the end.

Adrian says, “This book was so so.”

Do you like romantic knights in shining armor, or high-spirited princes?? Well this book has both those and then some!! In a twisting story of uncertain kings, back-stabbing friends, and one deadly quest, Prince Roger must under go all of this!! Roger was born in a Barrel of Laughs, so when anyone came within a certain distance of him, they unexplainably start laughing. The royal magican, J. Wellington Wizard, puts a stop to this "nonsense" by sending Roger on a dangerous quest. Will Roger survive or fall victim and get stuck forever!!??? Find out yourself in.....A Barrel of Laughs, A Vale of Tears!!!!!
