...mountains of silliness, bags of inventiveness and lots of charm!
A brisk, bumptious read, full of preposterous names, surreal imagery and daft sound effects.
Brilliantly original and hilarious. It's nearly as good as one of my books.
Features an evil emperor with the silliest laugh and wacky illustrations. One for fans of Horrid Henry and Tom Gates
The funniest and most enjoyable book for this age group for quite some time. I even sang the song at the end. And apparently more to come in the series. I can't wait.
This book made me (and my sister) laugh out loud a lot; the story is funny, the descriptions are hilarious, the extraordinary characters have fun quirky names and the illustrations made me giggle too. [...] At the end of the book there is the music and lyrics for "The Emperor's Striding Theme" which I am learning to play because like the book it's really funny and everyone deserves a theme tune. I recommend this book to everyone because its fun, quirky and hilarious.
Two words - such fun!
With illustrations and hearty laughs on every page, this is sure to keep readers in stitches.
An insanely funny debut children's series from Emmy award-winning writer and cartoonist, Andy Riley
The book is funny and fast paced. It's a dream to read alone or to share with children ... Brilliant for 7-12 year olds. Particularly recommended for boys and reluctant readers.
...full of the most outrageous humour and brilliant detail.
