A novella. Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Nate Taylor.
We're pleased to announce the second volume in The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whifffle. This time around, Patrick Rothfuss and Nate Taylor have dreamed up an adventure that's nearly twice as long as the original.
In in first volume of The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle,
we learned what lurks beneath our beds. What's more, we learned that
little girls are not helpless, and that princess are not always what
In this second installment of the Princess's adventures, we learn a little more about the Princess's family. We learn how dark it is in the Deep Below…
And we learn what happens when the Princess gets a little brother.
The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Dark of Deep Below is a dark twist on the classic children's picture book.
Perfect for geek children and adults who love dark faerie tales, international bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss has described the Princess's adventures as, “Calvin and Hobbes meets Coraline, with a healthy dose of Edward Gorey mixed in.”
Patrick Rothfuss (US, born 1973) currently lives in central Wisconsin where he teaches at the local university. In his free time Patrick writes a satirical humor column, practices civil disobedience, and dabbles in alchemy. He loves words, laughs often, and refuses to dance.
The working title of the third book of The Kingkiller Chronicle is The Doors of Stone.
