13. Storyteller

By: Edward Myers

Level: YA

 

Jack had a calling.  He had stories that bubbled up inside of him that had to come out.  One day he left home to tell others of his stories.  Along his way, Jack met Loquato a talking bird.  Together they travel to the royal city where Jack becomes the royal storyteller.  Of course, as in any fairy tale, Jack fell in love with the princess and has to try cheering up the king.  Then, everything goes wrong.  The novel explores plot and character development quite brazenly as Jack tries to find his way out of situations through storytelling.  Finding oneself, betrayal, love, and loyalty are all essential parts to the story to create a satisfying whole.
