Hodder Children's Books, 2016. ISBN 9781444929591
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. King Edwin is a kid and a king. He rules Edwinland and is loved by everyone. (especially on Fridays when he spends his pocket money on chocolate and shares it with everyone). Minister Jill helps King Edwin run the country while evil Emperor Nurbinson continually plots to steal Edwinland from them all. How will a cow disguised as a dragon be the downfall of the kingdom? Will the people of Edwinland be easily swayed? How does shaving 2 sheep help Edwin hide his crown? Can Edwin become a guard in Nurbinson's army and spoil Emperor Nurbinson's plans? By the way, his people call him King Edwin. You will have to read the book to find out why he is called King Flashypants in this story.
King Flashypants and the Evil Emperor is a hilarious read and highly recommended for readers aged 9+ . Thanks to funny events like itchy bums and characters with crazy names, reluctant readers will be laughing all the way to the end. The text is descriptive and moves quickly. It is scattered with funny cartoons and readers will be hanging out for the next King Edwin adventure.
