“A magical story full of humor and heart.” —Katherine Applegate, Newbery-winning author of The One and Only Ivan
For fans of The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom comes an offbeat, comedic spin on the Excalibur legend told from the point of view of a talking dog who wants to be a magician!
Meet Nosewise. He’s spunky. He’s curious. And he’s a dog who can’t understand why his pack mates Merlin and Morgana spend all day practicing magic tricks. If it’s a trick they want, he’s the dog to ask! He can already Sit!, Stay!, and Roll Over!
But there’s no way Nosewise is Stay!ing when his master and best friend, Merlin, is kidnapped. There’s nothing Nosewise won’t do to get Merlin back, even if it means facing the strange Fae people and their magic-eating worms, or tangling with the mysterious Sword in the Stone. But it may take more than sniffing out a spell to do it!
Nosewise’s hilarious escapades and steadfast loyalty get him and his companions through King Arthur’s Dark Ages.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A magical story full of humor and heart.”

    Katherine Applegate, Newbery-winning author

  • “An interesting retelling of The Sword in the Stone…Definitely the dog’s story, and animal lovers will enjoy the antics of Nosewise and his human family.”

    School Library Journal

  • “An ingenious and entirely credible (at least dog lovers will agree with this) twist on the familiar tale.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Graham Halstead does a fabulous job capturing Nosewise’s enthusiastic, loyal spirit, along with his delight in sounds, smells, and adventures (not to mention his dislike of doors)…Halstead’s well-depicted voices for Merwin, Morgana, and a host of others add dimension and drama to the story. But best in show is lovable Nosewise, whose original perspective is highly entertaining. Listeners will never doubt this hero’s ability to save his human family.”
