Iznogoud Iznogoud and the Day of Misrule by Goscinny


Iznogoud Iznogoud and the Day of Misrule by Goscinny

In Baghdad, the Caliph's Grand Vizier Iznogoud has one aim in life: to become Caliph instead of the Caliph. The benign ruler, Haroun al Plassid is blind to his vizier's scheming to get rid of him and generally had rather take a nap. Iznogoud is faithfully seconded by Wa'at Alahf in trying to put his fiendish designs into action.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
