Synopsis

Prince Marvin's Great Moment Crunchbone Castle Chronicles by Karen Wallace

Poor Prince Marvin, the Meek! His twin sister, Princess Gusty Ox may be built like a battle ship but Marvin has always been a bit...physically feeble. It's not surprising his sister bullies him. But, when his father King Cudgel's best suits are ruined by mysterious globs of green gloop, things get even worse. It seems that Harry the Hairy Green Giant has caught a cold and the King orders Prince Marvin to sort him out. If Prince Marvin can cure the giant and prove himself, his sister won't be able to bully him any more. But first he needs a little help from Crackle the court magician...This is the second laugh-a-minute historical adventure in The Crunchbone Castle Chronicles.

About the Author

Karen Wallace

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case.
I write books for children from five to fifteen years old. The ability to recall how you felt and what your world was like at a particular point in your childhood is something that all children's writers share. It's like pushing a rewind switch and going back in time. Many of my natural history books for children, like THINK OF AN EEL, which won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, IMAGINE YOU ARE A TIGER, or I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS REX all reflect my own sense of wonder exploring the woods and the river around me when I was a child. Years later, I wrote about this childhood in my first novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTZE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
