Synopsis

King Of Quizzical Island by Gordon Snell

Set sail on a fantastical voyage with the inquisitive King of Quizzical Island. When the King of Quizzical Island decides to visit the edge of the world, nothing and no one will stand in his way. What will he find? What adventures await? And won't he fall off the edge...? First published over thirty years ago, the King's comical, quizzical adventures are every bit as fresh and funny today, and this glorious new edition, including colour art for the very first time, will delight readers of every age. Children will be captivated by this gentle, absurd rhyming tale in the playful tradition of Edward Lear. Walker Books is delighted to be publishing world-renowned picture book maker David McKee for the first time. Walker Books is collaborating with David McKee and Gordon Snell to publish the hilarious sequel to The King of Quizzical Island - expected in 2010!
