Hilarious adventures of a reluctant hero. Blart is back for a new set of adventures. This time he is on a deadly mission to save Princess Lois – and he doesn’t even like her! Sailing across the treacherous sea he is besieged by cut throat pirates and the deadly Guild of Assassins. Can the ever-resourceful hero win through? This is the third book in the series that includes Blart and Blart 2.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

Princess Lois has been kidnapped by Anatoly the Handsome. Blart sets out on the good ship The Golden Pig with Olaf the innocent and Kupverstich the Strange. They must battle cut-throat pirates, a sixteen-tentacled octopus, escape the suffocating bureaucracy of Triplicat, where they are briefly marooned. But will they make it in time?


'[a] ridiculously enjoyable anti-fairytale ... a witty and engaging treat. I read it in one sitting with a big smile on my face'

About the Author

Dominic Barker

Dominic Barker was born in 1966 in Southport only months after England won the World Cup. He studied English at Birmingham University, and subsequently was a stand-up comic with the likes of Frank Skinner and Alan Davies, then a secondary school teacher, before writing his first series for young readers about a teenage detective, Mickey Sharp. Dominic has since written three anarchic spoof-quests featuring the hapless hero Blart (the boy who didn’t want to save the world) and is currently working on a new stand alone novel called Adam and the Arkonauts. Dominic lives in Spain.
