Item description for The Way Home: A Princess Story by Max Lucado & Tristan Elwell...

Princess Anna, adopted by the king in her infancy and now a young woman, is intrigued by the world that lies beyond the lush, green hills of the kingdom. When she seeks to satisfy her curiosity, she falls under the influence of the Lowlanders and begins to resemble their haggard style. Never to let a child slip away that easily, the king follows her, and trades his life for hers in order to provide her with a way back home. Despite the king's sacrifice, the choice to return home is ultimately Anna's to make.
The underlying truth is unmistakable as

Reviews - What do customers think about The Way Home: A Princess Story?

A book children will treasure  Jan 14, 2006
The Way Home by Max Lucado is the story of redemption told in a colorfully illustrated fairy-tale form.

Anna, the adopted daughter of the king, has everything she needs and more, but she hears stories of the Lowlanders. They never work. They play all the time. The forest where they live looks so inviting.

Her tutor, Sir Henry, tries to warn her of the evil that dwells in the forest. Edward, the king's strongest knight, pleads with her to avoid "these servants of Olbaid." But Anna is only half listening. When invited to visit the woods by an old woman, "For just a peek," Anna follows. When Anna finds she has been tricked, she is hopelessly lost among the trees.

Only the king can rescue her--she is his child. He knows what Olbaid really wants. You will find examples of Mr. Lucado's humor as you read the various characters' names. The story is wonderful read by the child alone, but even better when a parent reads and explains it as a picture of God's redemptive love.

This is a book a child will treasure and want to read over and over. And, it's meaning will only deepen as he grows. -- Linda Demorest, Christian Book
Disappointing offering by a favorite author  Dec 16, 2005
Athough I've never read his Hermes kids' series, I've always loved Max Ludado's adult-aimed books and had high hopes for this story. It is beautifully illustrated, but the parable just doesn't pack the emotional whollop of, say, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."

The story starts off (slowly) in a castle where a princess has been adopted by a king. More than half of the book is devoted to this flacid character mooning out the window, wondering what it'd be like to visit the "Lowlanders" (Lion King II, anyone?), whom she suspects have all sorts of fun. Odd, because she's such a dull character throughout, I can't imagine her enjoying herself too much, anyway.

Finally, toward the end, one of these imp-like characters (Satan's minions, whose names of "Ima," "Gunna," and "Getcha" sound like someone's trying too hard to be clever) tricks the princess into following him into the woods. Instantly, he tells her she can't go back because she's one of them now. She aquiesces, for reasons unknown to the reader, since she could just as easily call the guy a creep and turn right around and be out already. But she doesn't, because she doesn't ever actually *do* anything the whole story, anyway.

Meanwhile, back at the kingdom, the King learns what has happened and goes to the forest to get his daughter. Yes, that part makes sense. I get it. But the story is so poorly woven that it doesn't do the epic justice. The King just waltzes into the forest, lets Olbiad (Get it? Again with the straining to be clever) kill him, then stands up and tells the princess it's time to go home.

On the last page, the princess tells the King she can't go home because she doesn't know the way. He says he does and for her to take his hand, and that's the end. Seriously! Why would a child tell a grown-up who just rescued her that she doesn't know the way? Duh.

I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but this had the potential to be such a rich tale, and it falls quite flat. I returned it.
