Prize-winning author and illustrator duo Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell are masters of creativity. Muddle Earth is a cracking adventure set in a topsy turvy world peopled with incredible characters such as a wizard who knows only one spell, an ogre whose hobbies are thumb sucking and cake decorating and a schoolboy who, thanks goodness, is almost completely normal! What happens to them in a world with purple moons, sinister flying wardrobes and much, much more is mad, magical and exciting to read.

Muddle Earth by Chris Riddell, Paul Stewart

Where would you find a perfumed bog filled with pink sticky hogs and exploding gas frogs? A place that's home to a wizard with only one spell, an ogre who cries a lot and a very sarcastic budgie? Welcome to Muddle Earth. A place where anything can happen - and usually does. Joe Jefferson, an ordinary schoolboy from ordinary earth, is about to find his life changed forever.

Prepare for a great battle of good, evil and sort of ok...
