Kurzbeschreibung

When Oliver Stoop, age 11, moves with his family to a remote piece of land in northern Indiana, he soon discovers that someone is already living there - an entire kingdom of someones, in fact. These are the good citizens of Patria, a secret land founded by refugees from the Trojan War who sailed across the Atlantic in a reconfigured Trojan Horse - 3,000 years ago!

For Oliver, Patria is a land of wonders - and for the first time in his life, friendship. There's young Prince Farnsworth Vesuvius, inventor of the Magna-Pneumatic Whizzing Biscuit Blaster, and his formidable sister, Princess Rose, whose inedible, stone-hard biscuits provide the blaster's ammunition. But there's also the rest of the eccentric and lovable Patrian Royal Family, the boy warriors in the Potawatomi Indian Camp, not to mention the Viking kids from the Geat Village, newcomers to the area who only arrived 1,000 years ago.

Yet when the noble Knights of the Blue Sock threaten to drive off the Stoops by force of arms, Oliver has to decide where his loyalties lie, and whether he has the courage to undertake the quest that is both Patria's, and his family's, last, best hope of peace.

Join Oliver now as he discovers a new world of fun and excitement right in his backyard!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sucks you in from the moment the first biscuit is thrown! 29. Oktober 2011
Von The Kindle Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Meet 11 year old Oliver Stoop, who moves into a mobile home and tent 'house' waiting for his father's dream castle to be built on a vast piece of secluded green land with his parents, Mr and Mrs Stoop and Aunt Hazel in tow.

Soon after arriving, Oliver encounters a rag tag bunch of children, led by a Princess, who state that he is encroaching on the Land of Patria and must leave, or face all out war!

With his eccentric, stubborn father leading the defense, Oliver soon finds himself embroiled in a land of Trojan Horses, Knights, and shields bearing a blue sock emblem! These little touches really show the effort and thought put into this story, a theme that is consistent throughout the tale.

This story is spellbinding. I fully intend to purchase this book for the little boys and girls in my life, and I wish it had been around when I was a child, for I would have only loved it more!

One classic funny line from the book: '"Report away, by all means," said Mr Stoop. "And while you're at it, be sure to tell your king I think he's a raving lunatic, too. Nighty - night, you nutcases!"

This will delight children and adults alike. It's fresh, highly amusing, and with Oliver Stoop being such an identifiable, lovable character (and a bookworm himself to boot!) I can see this book quickly becoming a modern classic that will stay with children long after the last page. Does that make me a child? I wonder.........

This book is hot off the presses so I am aware of not dropping too many spoilers. Buy it now and lose yourself in the story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An adventure story you'll enjoy as much as your kids do! 15. Januar 2013
Von Sarah Reinhard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Oh, my! What a project! Maps and blogs and radio in addition to the stories themselves, which are good in all the ways that make you remember them long after you've put them down.

The books themselves are just as good as I was hoping they'd be. Who needs adult fiction when you can have stories like these? I categorize them middle grade or mom-worthy, you pick.

We meet the characters in Stout Hearts and Whizzing Biscuits, and when you pick yourself up from laughing at the outlandishness of it all, you'll be turning the pages (or flipping the screen) so fast you might see a blur. The story is good. And hilarious.

The adventure continues in The Stoop of Mastadon Meadow with a conflict that seems, again, impossible (how did McIrney think of this?). I tried to hide that I was on the edge of my seat, but there you have it: I was.

I was pretty sure, in both books, that things would turn out okay. But there's always that worry: does the author think "okay" is the same as I think "okay" is? Will I end up hating life after reading these books?

And do I need a map to find my way around?

No map needed, but you'll find an interactive one (in colored, detailed beauty) at the website.

I feel like maybe it's cliche to say that these books are wonderful, excellent, and delightful, but they are. I laughed out loud and caught myself trying to read passages to anyone who was nearby.

My eight-year-old will be reading them soon, oh yes, and that will be all the excuse I need to dive back into this new world that I hope will feel as familiar as Narnia someday.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book! Perfect Christmas present! 12. Dezember 2012
Von Pete Cook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you have not yet been introduced to the Kingdom of Patria, I would very much encourage you to buy this book for any child ages 7-13 or 14. It is thoroughly enjoyable and has a wonderful blend of humor, references to the classics, American history spoofs, and the latest technology. It is a quick, fun read...and now as a paperback is a perfect stocking stuffer! And the website that goes with it is also great fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wish Amazon had more stars to give! 17. Juli 2013
Von Erin McCole Cupp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
THIS BOOK IS AN ANSWER TO PRAYER! I kid. You. Not. As alluded to in a previous post, about how hard it is to find suitable reading material for young kids with high Lexile scores... well, it's really hard to find reading material suitable for young kids with high Lexile scores! I once put my then-eight year-old's score into a Lexile "find a book" page, and the first recommendation to come up was Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. FOR AN EIGHT YEAR-OLD?!? I won't even let them read The Hunger Games yet (someday, just not yet), precisely because they are old enough to understand what is going on in the story... and have a month of nightmares because of it. Thanks, but no thanks.

And then... along came Stout Hearts and Whizzing Biscuits: A Patria Novel by Daniel McInerney.

We have Oliver, a young American hero who accidentally finds himself in the middle of a war. There's Farnsworth, a wisecracking, biscuit-shooting prince from the country in conflict, who we absolutely know will never be friends with American Oliver Stoop. Like, neverrrr. Then there's Princess Rose, who is a hilarious combination of Princess Giselle and (a far more mentally stable) River Tam. The plot zips along with just the right pacing and just the right level of complications to keep minds young and old working for their entertainment. There are just enough "go get your dictionary" words in there to provide a nice stretch for the younger reader and to prove that the novel is never dumbed down. I laughed out loud through the whole reading of it, and am I very excited to pass it along to my kids old enough to read independently.

If there were six stars on Amazon, I'd give them to Stout Hearts and Whizzing Biscuits. Alas, there are not. There is, however, a brilliant Web site for all things Patria, where kids (adults too, why not?) can explore Patria, interact with Oliver, Farnsworth, and Princess Rose, and buy the next book in the series. I hope it's the next of many, many more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful adventure book, great for the entire family! 4. Januar 2013
Von Monica Caro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Stout hearts and Whizzing Biscuits is a jaunty, fast-paced adventure book that is fun for the entire family. It is set in the hidden realm of Patria, which is nestled somewhere in contemporary Indiana, while quaintly retaining knights, castles, royalty, and everything you need for a perfect middle-reader setting. Author Daniel McInerny (son of the late, great Ralph McInerny) packs the book with clever dialogue and a captivating, tight storyline that had me laughing out loud (particularly as the father attempts to explain the concept of staplers to the parchment wielding Patrians). While the book is certainly not preachy or overt in inculcating virtues, it is nice to read about a young hero being careful to tell the truth, obeying his father, and accepting discipline even when undeserved. Any book that can entertain and manage seamless references to St. Brendan, the Library of Alexandria, Aeneas, the Lost Dialogues of Aristotle, and the Etruscans is certainly worth a read. I would strongly recommend this delightful book. I initially read it on Kindle, and then purchased several paperback copies to share as gifts.
