Dirk Lloyd, the Dark Lord trapped in the body of a weedy schoolboy, returns in another darkly hilarious adventure... Brilliantly funny and subversive, this is the Funny Prize-winning Jamie Thomson at his best. Sooz, a 13 yr old girl from Surrey has become the Dark Mistress of Dirk's other worldly kingdom, the Darklands. Thanks to the Ring of Power given to her by Dirk, his minions recognise her as their ruler. Sooz immediately sets about redecorating Dirk's Dark Tower to the taste of a young girl. But Sooz has to face her toughest challenge when an army of fanatical paladins and orcs gather to march against her. Despite their centuries of hostility to each other, they prefer to form an alliance rather than accept Sooz's new regime. And what of Dirk? He continues on slaving away at school, plotting ways to rescue Sooz. Eventually he is able to advise her on life in the Darklands and Sooz is able to hold back the fanatical paladins.
Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012 - aged seven to fourteen. This is wonderfully original, completely mad but according to a 10 year old boy we gave it to is one of the funniest books he's read all year. Bring together the thought that there is a 13 year old school boy who thinks he's the Dark Lord reincarnated and yet trapped in a puny schoolboy body; that he must survive the drudgery of life on earth as we know it whilst at the same time find a way of returning to his homeland. Don't miss it!
