Royal Love

When we last left Arthur at the end of Arthur and the Minimoys, he was five inches tall and was trying to find his long-lost grandfather in the vast underground world of the Minimoys. In the sequel to that first book, Arthur continues his quest while falling in love with the brave Princess Selenia - the fearless heiress to the Minimoyan thrown. While Arthur navigates his way through the magical kisses of Selenia, he must also help her save the Minimoys from destruction at the hands of the evil Maltazard the Cursed.

Lost Child, Lost Treasure

As Arthur's heart is going crazy for a somewhat prissy princess, his distraught parents are busy digging up the back garden, looking for their 10 year-old son. How could he possibly have just disappeared from the backyard? Will Arthur's parents ever see their son again? Will Arthur be able to save the Minimoys from being drowned by the demented Maltazard? Will he ever find his long-lost grandfather and the hidden treasure, which will save his grandma's house from being seized by a dodgy landlord? The answer to all these questions lies in the dark corners of Necropolis, the Forbidden City.


The Bottom Line

Arthur and the Forbidden City is an exciting adventure through a cool underground world filled with evil rulers, sweet princesses and hidden rubies. It's a faster read than Arthur and the Minimoys and there's bit more action as Arthur is forced to prove himself as a worthy husband to Selenia and a brave warrior who will fight to the death for the Minimoys. If you haven't read the first book in the series, you may find yourself a little bit lost in places - so definitely give Arthur and the Minimoys a read first. An animated movie based on Arthur and the Minimoys, featuring Madonna and Snoop Dogg, is also coming out in January 2007, so stay tuned for plenty of Minimoyan mayhem in the near future.

Would You Risk Your Life to Kiss a Princess?

  • For sure - a kiss from a princess is worth it.
  • Not a chance - no princess is worth my life.
  • If she was really, really hot.
  • If she had lots and lots of money.

I'm a perfectionist, but I don't care about outer appearances, which explains why my room is always messy. If you'd pay me 5 bucks a week if I keep it clean every day, then I would definitely clean my room to crisp perfection. Moving on to my 'perfectionism'. Well, I get incredibly frustrated and even start crying if I can't comprehend a lesson or my homework. Last time this happened, I was so angry that I went to bed, hoping that tomorrow, the deal would be cleared up. If someone helps me do something that I can't, I feel defeated and embarrassed, just like the O.P. So I force myself to do my homework alone until I eventually think I get it. When I get mad, I try to distance myself from others and stay in my room, calming down and relaxing to make the anger pass away, unlike many. I don't want to risk getting mad at the others, fearing that it'll make a bad situation in the future. I'd say I'm a good drawer when it comes to anime, so I try to make my pictures really, really, really perfect. This is what I think: Ugh, the eye shape on the right looks weird! What's up with that mouth? It's so hard to draw eyelashes!  I'm going to need to redo the irises. Should I make the nose stand out or not? This face does not look like an anime girl's face! Have I drawn some sort of monster? So, yeah, it does sound like I'm quite the perfectionist, but I'm very lazy and won't blow up in somebody's face because they ruined something I made with such detailed perfection.
