The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Thing Beneath the Bed is a mildly disturbing tale. The biggest reason for that is that it looks like a children's book. Let me assure you, you must trust the blurb this is not a book for children

The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Let me assure you, you must trust the blurb this is not a book for children. I counted at least 5 moments that would cause my 4 year old daughter to never let us turn the lights off in her room again. My 4 year old can read well and I know that sounds cool, but she's been doing it since she was 3 and a half.

Princezna a pan Whiffle jsou série obrázkových knih napsaných Patrichem Rothfussem a ilustrovanou Nate Taylorovou. Ačkoli se objevují jinak, nejsou vhodné pro děti.

The books do not feature any reference to Temerant and are unlikely to even be set in the same world.

Afterwards, Rothfuss resumed his work on the third book of the trilogy, The Doors of Stone, but the half-unfinished story about Auri tickled him and eventually he went back to finish it.

The Dark of Deep Below (2013).

The Adventures of Princess and Mr Whiffle: the Thing Beneath the Bed is proof positive that Patrick Rothfuss has a warped mind. If you read his blog, you probably already had a hint that this was true. Reading The Name of the Wind probably wouldn’t give you any hint, though I haven’t read it with intent to see. Read the Adventures and you’ll know for certain. I actually loved this book. I read it in about five minutes and will probably read it several more times Interesting. The art by Nate Taylor is beautiful.

Patrick Rothfuss was born in Madison, Wisconsin on June 6, 1973. in English from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point and M. A. from Washington State University. He teaches at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. In 2002, his short story, The Road to Levinshir, won first place in the Writers of the Future contest. He writes The Kingkiller Chronicles.

This is not a book for children. It looks like a children's book. It has pictures. It has a saccharine-sweet title. The main characters are a little girl and her teddy bear. But all of that is just protective coloration. The truth is, this is a book for adults with a dark sense of humor and an appreciation of old-school faerie tales. There are three separate endings to the book. Depending on where you stop, you are left with an entirely different story. One ending is sweet, another is horrible. The last one is the true ending, the one with teeth in it. The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle is a dark twist on the classic children's picture-book. I think of it as Calvin and Hobbes meets Coraline, with some Edward Gorey mixed in. Simply said: This is not a book for children.

Rivik
As the book proudly states, this is not a book for children.

What it fails to mention is that neither is it a book for teens, adults, or anything in between. I honestly would never have bought this book if it didn't have Patrick Rothfuss' name on it, and now I have intense buyers remorse at shelling out $35 for what reads like something written on a dare. It is neither appropriate for children nor engaging for adults.

---SPOILERS---

Also, the 'twist' ending would be more of an acceptable twist if it was foreshadowed at all. The only hints you get are the mildly grisly fates of some of the Princess' stuffed animals, but nothing to suggest her carnivorous reveal.

Like Pat Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles, this little gem has much more to it than first meets the eye. It appears to be a simple story, where the illustrations offer at least as much as the text. But it's also an exercise in the way a writer (and illustrator) can give you all the clues, while still fooling the eye like a street magician. It's a lesson in the job of a reader to notice details, and read carefully.

And, unlike the lengthy trilogy, all of this in about 750 words.

My teenager loves this, and wants to share it with all her friends. She is not sure which will be more fun, the appreciation from those who will understand the genius here, or the consternation of those who don't. Maybe because she could be distantly related to its heroine. Or WS Gilbert's Katishah, who's "just a wee bit bloodthirsty."

I love Patrick Rothfuss's writing. This is definitely a different voice from King Killer Chronicle but matches his personality and wit perfectly. I have seen other's say that this is a book about children, but not for children. I don't see that. I think the "monster under the bed" aspects are great and when i was a kid we were allowed to enjoy a little bit of scary or gory. I think most kids would have fun with this book, but i don't have children so read it first and decide for yourself. The illustration is superb and perfectly matched to the cute and not-so-cute aspects of this story.

Patrick Rothfuss knows how to write a fun and deep kids book. It is dark and thus some kids love the details and hidden meanings while others cry. This is a book that requires several readings to catch everything in the word play and pictures. Great coffee table book too.

I didn't know exactly what to expect out of this book. I'd read the synopsis, read Pat's blogs concerning it, was looking forward to it, but still didn't have a concrete idea of what it would be exactly. That said, I'm SO happy I purchased it. Not only is it a fun read, it's got some serious bite. This is a coffee table book for me. I'm a single adult, with single adult friends, and not only is this something that we all will enjoy, but we'll reference it to each other over the years as a shared awesome experience.

The Princess and Mr Wiffle may not be for everyone, but it's definitely for me.
Zadora
Ok, don't read this to your kids, not the young ones anyway. It is a fun one, and you get to
choose your ending, you have three choices. Depending on how sick your sense of humor is, its
your choice, so this will fit anyone's taste. The illustrations are wonderfully done by Nate
Taylor.
Lightbinder
Love it!
Pat Rothfuss has an eccentric sense of humor, evidenced by this book which appears to be a classic fairy tale, but without a classic fairy tale ending. Made me laugh out loud!
