This is the fiendishly funny sequel to Urgum the Axeman. It’s all action adventure involving some really weird yet wonderfully appealing characters. You’re sure to create a real commotion when reading this and Axeman because you can’t fail to laugh-out-loud uncontrollably. Together with Philip Reeve’s irreverent illustrations it’s a fine example of comic geniuses at work.

Synopsis

Urgum And The Seat Of Flames by Kjartan Poskitt

The gods are worried! Is Urgum - the fiercest barbarian the Lost Desert has ever known - going soft? He needs a real fight to give him the buzz of being a champion and keep him fierce. So they create Orgo the Gorgo to give him some competition in this laugh-aloud sequel to Urgum The Axeman.

About the Author

Kjartan Poskitt

Agatha Parrot says: 'So far I've written out most of the words in my spelling book. I've also filled about 12 numeracy books, 9 literacy books and once did a project about how the sun makes plants grow which Miss Barking gave me a gold star for. This book took me AGES though! Well I didn't exactly write it, I just talked and the old man typed it out, but it took almost the whole afternoon. It would have been quicker if he hadn't kept stopping to check if he'd got any emails, but he never had. (What a loser!)'

Kjartan Poskitt is the well-loved author of many hilarious books for children including Agatha Parrot and the Murderous Maths series, translated into over 30 languages. With a background in children’s television, he is a tireless and brilliant performer.
