In a nutshell: small king, smaller horse, massive monster | Boy king Edwin Flashypants is back in another laugh-out-loud helping of cartoon action, jokes, and invention. A terrible monster has awoken in the Wilderness of Crong. Edwin is ready to face it – this is a chance to do all the brave and bold things grown-up kings do. Meanwhile, Emperor Nurbison – he of the ‘Foo Hoo Hoo Hoo’ evil laugh – has his own plan for dealing with the monster, and getting his hands on Edwinland too. Can Edwin defeat the Voolith and outwit Nurbison? The people of Edwinland are counting on him. Once again Andy Riley has created a wonderfully funny quest adventure with some wonderfully silly characters and situations. Illustrations by the author add to the fun, don’t miss Emperor Nurbison doing his evil yoga.

For more daft adventures don’t miss Matt Brown’s Compton Valance books or Guy Bass’s Stitch Head books. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

King Flashypants and the Creature from Crong by Andy Riley

When rumours of a huge and terrifying monster called the Gizimoth reach Edwinland, King Edwin Flashypants decides that, to be a proper king, he needs to go and fight it. Meanwhile, Emperor Nurbison has had a similar idea, but he has a much sneakier plan for what he can do with the Gizimoth. And it involves squishing Edwinland. Hold tight for another thrilling Flashypants adventure, with jousting, vegetables, fire-breathing toads and plenty of FOO-HOO-HOOing.
