Victor's Quest

By Pamela Freeman
Illustrated by Kim Gamble

A classic Australian tale about a sweet but dense prince on a quest to find a princess.

Prince Victor (who is not very smart) and his horse Quince (who is) set off on a quest to find a princess for Victor to marry. Bravely, they venture into the Dark Forest of Nevermore, where things swoop out of the trees, and someone is casting spells …

  • This funny, sweet and popular classic Australian fairytale is being reissued before the newly penned and long-awaited sequel, Victor's Challenge.
  • Victor’s Quest was short-listed for the CBCA Book of the Year for Younger Readers in 1997
