In a nutshell: more laugh out loud fun with King Flashypants and evil Emperor Nurbison Fans of Andy Riley’s brilliantly funny and inventive King Flashypants books will be delighted with this new adventure which once again pits the young king and his team, Minister Jill and Megan the Jester, against his nemesis Emperor Nurbison. Still scheming to take over Edwinland, Nurbison has a dastardly new plan involving flooding Edwin’s kingdom with evil dolls. Fortunately, good once again triumphs over evil and the Emperor is forced to make an ignominious exit, dragged home by his mum. It’s great fun with Nurbison’s long-suffering assistant Globulus really coming into his own. The author’s own cartoon illustrations make this as much fun to look at as it is to read. ~ Andrea Reece For more daft adventures don’t miss Matt Brown’s Compton Valance books or Guy Bass’s Stitch Head books.
In a nutshell: small king, smaller horse, massive monster | Boy king Edwin Flashypants is back in another laugh-out-loud helping of cartoon action, jokes, and invention. A terrible monster has awoken in the Wilderness of Crong. Edwin is ready to face it – this is a chance to do all the brave and bold things grown-up kings do. Meanwhile, Emperor Nurbison – he of the ‘Foo Hoo Hoo Hoo’ evil laugh – has his own plan for dealing with the monster, and getting his hands on Edwinland too. Can Edwin defeat the Voolith and outwit Nurbison? The people of Edwinland are counting on him. Once again Andy Riley has created a wonderfully funny quest adventure with some wonderfully silly characters and situations. Illustrations by the author add to the fun, don’t miss Emperor Nurbison doing his evil yoga. For more daft adventures don’t miss Matt Brown’s Compton Valance books or Guy Bass’s Stitch Head books. ~ Andrea Reece
In a nutshell : noble kings – evil laughs – chocolate Good versus evil is given a very funny workout in this the first book in what should become a very popular series. As kings go, Edwin is lovely, always distributing chocolate to his subjects. Unfortunately, being so nice – and being just a boy – he’s no match for his nemesis the Emperor Norbison, who has his very own evil laugh (it goes ‘Foo Hoo Hoo Hoo’), and a dastardly plan to make Edwinland his own. Andy Riley cleverly lampoons comic book conventions while simultaneously constructing an action story that will thoroughly satisfy their readers. The book finishes with hints of a new threat for Edwinland, and the sheet music and lyrics to the Emperor’s Striding Theme! For sheer daftness see also Matt Brown’s Compton Valance books, or Guy Bass’s The Legend of Frog books. ~ Andrea Reece
