Helpful Score: 1

This is the first book in the Xanth series, and as such is rather different in tone from the others. (It's not quite as punny.) It's closer to standard fantasy fare. It's very interesting to see how the tone of the books has evolved and changed since this one.
This is the story of Bink, soon to be exiled from Xanth for lack of a magical talent, and his encounter with the exiled Evil Magician Trent.
