Definitely a good way to end book one. We have seen this little boy progress from being alone to having friends. We've seen him get a little more confident, even a little bold and definitely more adventurous. We know there are great things ahead of him and like the other reviewers I wait, hopefully with some patience, to read book 2.

What a finish!
At least we know Puck has finally got some clothes and a better shelter than that yew tree. Nice pictures again to go with a beautiful story.
I like the horse too. :)

This is getting really exciting and I'm dying to know Pucks real name. Good to see he finally has the essentials and the wizard will teach him things. I agree it's sad that book one is finished but it did finish on a high note. Like everyone else I look forward to book two.

This is a cliffhanger. Puck is going to be a king? Of course, we knew in part 1 he was a prince.
He looks cool in his new clothes and it's about time that wizard starting being nice to him.
A great 'wrap up' story to book one. More lovely pictures that the kids are really enjoying.

A good way to finish the first book. I've never heard of this tree but I'll take David Mantors word for it, 2 to 3 years. I don't think this lad will wait so long either. Nice clothes the wizard gave him although I don't think much of the house. lol.
Looking forward to see what Puck and the other characters get up to in book 2.

OMG isn't he a sweetheart in those lovely clothes. It is sad that book one is now complete and we have to wait for book two.
I hope the tree grows quickly for him my kids are going to be annoying me until book two is released. I'll talk to them about patients, I hope it works.
More wonderful pictures and a promising future for Puck.

It is a sad day today with the conclusion of book 1 in the series. I agree with Michael Arnold, a nice strong ending but keeps us wondering. I hope book 2 isn't too far away.
Good to see Puck has a nice little house and finally some clothes and shoes (or boots).
I don't think he'll wait for that tree to grow but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
5 stars all the way for this book.

What a wonderful way to end book one. Puck looks lovely with his clothes. I think Puck will have difficulty being patient and I'm sure he'll get up to something before the wizard returns. I'm fascinated and trying to work out which king he is but I have no doubt the author is going to make us wait for this one. Book one has introduced us to a nice little group of characters and I look forward to book two to further the adventure.

A good round up to this Book One.
Glad to see the wizard is being more helpful.
I can see him maturing nicely but the question is, how long will he wait.
Those trees take 2 or 3 years to grow and I can't see him waiting this long sitting at home.
GO FOR IT PUCK!
Looking forward to the next book.

He looks lovely in clothes and I'm glad to see he has his own little house. Love the horse!
Yes he will have to learn patience but I don't think Puck will wait too long.
Wonderful book. I enjoyed every little episode.
Looking forward to more from this author.

It's very sad to see the first book coming to an end, and like everyone else I look forward to book 2.
Great to see Puck finally got clothes and a proper roof over his head.
My daughter and I have enjoyed every one of these stories and I would recommend them to anyone whether they had children or not. A lovely read.

Ok. I can see it's time to be serious about reviewing this book. I have just finished reading all 10 parts in order and reading every review given.
In part 1 we didn't know Puck until the picture at the end but we knew how he was feeling.
It has evolved as the story continued and Puck has become close to our hearts. I agree with Michael Arnold when he said this kind of story is a once in a lifetime.
I agree with Ellen Varner and hope it comes out in print. I also agree with Brittany Lowden when she said she hadn't enjoyed a childrens book so much since Enid Blyton.
I am amazed at how my children have responded to these stories and we also look forward with great anticipation to book 2.

A wonderful way to finish book 1. It seems there is a tight group of fans by reading the reviews over all the series. We seem to be all in agreement as to the lessons. I have seen a change in my children over the last few weeks since I discovered Puck. I will read it to my children tonight and maybe I'll do what others are going to do, read it all in one go.
Delightful series.
Thank you.

I agree with everything the other reviewers have said. Book one has been a wonderful experience for my whole family. I will read the last two stories to my little ones after tea tonight. I have a feeling when they know what's coming every plate will be clean.
Looking forward to book two.
I have also started reading The Torans of Andor to my older ones (12 and 14) I like reading to my children. Another book by this author that my family are enjoying.

I agree with Samantha and I'm going to read the whole lot tonight as they haven't heard this one yet. I think they'll learn not to take a roof over their heads for granted and the clothes they wear.
Lovely to see Puck now has these basic things.
I also am looking forward to book two.
Again the pictures are excellent.

I have to admit that as an adult I have enjoyed every story in this series. I have passed it on to friends with children.
I became quite excited to read the authors notes at the end.
Thank you to Linda Arditto for writing such a memorable series.
Puck will learn patience, something a lot of us need to learn.
I look forward to book two and hope it isn't far away. Yes, I need to learn patience too. :-)

I agree with Samantha, this is the best book I've ever read since I was a kid, maybe better.
A wonderful way to conclude book one. Again the pictures are wonderful and add feeling to the story. We are going to miss Puck until book 2 is released, I hope it is soon.

What a beautiful wrap up to book 1. I'm going to start at part 1 and read the whole story to my granddaughter on the weekend. This has to be the best childrens book I've read since I was a child.
I hope like many others it is eventually released in print.
I think the author has been extremely generous in giving this book to us free.
I look forward to book 2 with great anticipation.

John I wanted to tell you my ebook is coming out in print Dec 10th & on the back of the cover, 4 reviews from around the world. Yours is one of them. Thank you

Yes, it's very sad when an author feels they have to do this. Even with books they are not competing with.
Obviously they're giving themselves bogus reviews.

Odd that the one book Bruno gave 5-stars was posted on Aug 16 and since then has received 38 reviews, many by guys named "11". Not that I'm suggesting anything.
