Andy Riley, Mathew Baynton
“Brilliantly original and hilarious. It’s nearly as good as one of my books.” DAVID WALLIAMS
“Two words – such fun!” MIRANDA HART
“It’s gobstonkingly funny!” ULI, aged 7
Great to read aloud with children of 5+ and perfect for newly independent readers of 7+.
It’s pretty nippy in Edwinland and Nurbisonia. In fact, it’s the coldest winter in a hundred years! After evil Emperor Nurbison steals all his peasants’ firewood and woolly hats just because he can, they go to live with nine-year-old King Edwin in Edwinland instead. The furious emperor talks the scary Ice Folk to join him in his latest dastardly plan to make life difficult for Edwin and his new peasants, but Edwin is determined not to let Nurbison get away with it. He is a noble king, after all!
But Edwin has an extra problem to deal with – a voice of doubt in his head called Wendy Worry, who keeps telling him he’s not up to the job of being king. How can he beat Emperor Nurbison AND Wendy Worry at the same time?
Like the other books in the series, this is the perfect bedtime story for slightly younger readers, while kids of seven and up will enjoy reading it solo. -- Anna Carey * The Irish Times * I like it because the king is a little boy and it's really funny. This one was good because it had ice monsters coming alive and a giant snowball. * Eli, aged 6 * Lots of funny and lots of silly. * Oliver, aged 6 * the perfect bedtime story for slightly younger readers, while kids of seven and up will enjoy reading it solo. * The Irish Times *
