"Sublime silliness starring everyone’s favourite knight"
What’s going on at Castle Sideways? First a band of gnomes launch an attack – thwarted by our hero young Knight Sir Louis – then a handsome squire arrives with news of more trouble: apparently the Wild Forest Ogres of Tumblin Klatterbang are also on their way and planning an attack. Time for Knight Sir Louis to step up again, but oh dear, King Burt the Not Bad has banished his knight and appointed the not-quite-as-charming-as-he-seems Squire now Knight Sir Lyme in his place.
With the slimy Sir Lyme ensconced in the palace and feeding everyone his seemingly endless supply of green gummy sweets, Louis sets off to find out what’s going on, leaving his friend wizentor Pearlin and her two-headed pet dragon Mac N Cheese to keep an eye on things at home. He’s helped as always by his trusty steed Sir Clunkalot, his sword Dave and friend Reader Catalogue, as well as various gnomes and ogres.
It’s all totally bonkers, but brilliantly funny and full of proper characters and rumbustious adventure. Easily as good as the first two books in this hilarious series which is high praise indeed. Short chapters, tons of pictures and unbeatable adventures make this super-readable. One to recommend to fans of Tom Gates or Phoenix Comic adventures.
