Sir Seth Thistlethwaite and the Soothsayer’s Shoes

by Siobhan
Kids / January 24, 2011

Are you looking for a new series that you can sink your teeth into — a series that will also twist your tongue and tickle your funny bone? Check out the first book in a series by Richard Thake, Sir Seth Thistlethwaite and the Soothsayer's Shoes. Yeah, try saying that five times fast.

This animated, alliterative series debut introduces young readers to Sir Seth Thistlethwaite and his buddy Sir Ollie Everghettz, leaders of the Mighty Knights of Right & Honor, and the made-up world of Thatchwych, where our gallant adventurers embark on their first quest. With the help of their horse (who’s really a dog named Shasta) and the saber-toothed sloth Edith-Anne, the boys must avoid the dangers of dog-eating bog frogs, fire-breathing bats, elephant ants, and invisible voices to save the day and return the stolen pair of soothsaying shoes to their rightful owner.

Here's a clip of Richard Thake reading from Sir Seth Thistlethwaite and the Soothsayer's Shoes.
