King Flashypants and the Creature From Crong

Book 2

By Andy Riley

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

The second book in the insanely funny debut children's series from Emmy award-winning comedy writer and cartoonist Andy Riley, scriptwriter for BBC One's Gangsta Granny and The Boy in the Dress.

"Brilliantly original and hilarious. It's nearly as good as one of my books." DAVID WALLIAMS
"Two words - such fun!" MIRANDA HART
"Beautiful, inventive and laugh-out-loud funny." SUE PERKINS

Great to read aloud with children of 5+ and perfect for newly independent readers of 7+.

When rumours of a huge and terrifying monster called the Voolith reach Edwinland, King Edwin Flashypants decides that, to be a proper king, he needs to go and fight it. Meanwhile, Emperor Nurbison has had a similar idea, but he has a much sneakier plan for what he can do with the Voolith. And it involves squishing Edwinland.

Hold tight for another thrilling Flashypants adventure, with jousting, vegetables, fire-breathing toads and plenty of FOO-HOO-HOOing.
