Fast-paced and very funny, Eddy Stone’s new adventure involves wizards, emperors, talking (dancing) camels and lots more that is very silly indeed. It all begins when Eddy buys a parcel of stuff in the house clearance at the town’s old manor. It turns out to contain a wizard with no body and a curse. He has to give everyone a wish, but they never work out as the wisher wanted. For example, when Eddy’s dad wishes he could sit around in front of the TV all day, he turns into a sofa. The only way Eddy can put things right is by heading to the wizard’s home in another magical land. The adventure that follows is consistently inventive, packed with cracking one-liners and lots of very funny set ups. There are two other Eddy Stone adventures, and I’d recommend you buy the lot.

When Eddy discovers a bedraggled cat in his front garden, his rubbish weekend turns into an alien escapade. Shooting off into outer space with his cousin Milly, Eddy finds himself on an epic adventure that's out of this world...
June 2016 Debut of the Month In a Nutshell: pirates – penguins – enchantments Eddy Stone and the Epic Holiday Mash-Up is an epic story indeed, and possibly the most inventive piratical comedy-fantasy-adventure you’ll read this year. It starts with Eddy finding a pirate captain in his gran’s bath. But, before you know it the two of them, plus a nice shopkeeper thereafter known as the Crew, and a penguin are on board their own pirate ship, the Codcake, and embarked on a treasure hunt that leads them from one fantastical place and adventure to another. All the while pursued by the properly nasty Barracuda Bill!. As quests go, it’s a cracker and very, very funny too. Polished and very original, this is Simon Cherry’s debut novel and hopefully the first of many. ~ Andrea Reece For more zany and satisfying pirate adventures, don’t miss The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones while David Solomon’s prize-winning My Brother is a Superhero is also fast, funny and well-written.
