KIRKUS REVIEW

Necessity being the mother of compliance, when the queen decides to go to the moon the astronomer, carpenter, and knight contrive to get her there. For every ""how can I do that?"" the answer is ""Just do it!"" (The phrase appears here sixteen times.) And so at last the four take off in a dragon-powered wooden rocket, returning when the queen gets bored with the moon and all four voyagers, including her majesty, have pulled the dragon out of a pothole. (""We did it!"") Murdocca tacks on the hint of a lesson for the queen (""That was fun! It's the first time I ever helped to do anything""), but essentially this is a message-free excursion, to be undertaken--or not--for the minimal fun of it.
