An insanely funny debut
A laugh-out-loud series for fans of cows disguised as dragons. Parents beware, young readers will revel in recreating the Evil Emperor's scary striding music!
From creating a new evil laugh to bottomless pits, the excellent variety of villainous friends, and a particularly vocal peasant girl called Natasha, there is lots to admire here.
With illustrations and hearty laughs on every page, this is sure to keep readers in stitches.
There are no libraries or books in King Flashypants and the Evil Emperor, written and drawn by Bunny Suicides author Andy Riley (Hachette), but this funny story does feature many other things that will appeal, especially to early and reluctant readers - not least an evil emperor with the silliest laugh and wacky illustrations. One for fans of Horrid Henry and Tom Gates.
...this slapstick tale is sure to appeal to those who love something a bit silly. The first book in an uproarious new series for confident young readers.
...mountains of silliness, bags of inventiveness and lots of charm!

This book made me (and my sister) laugh out loud a lot [...] 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.
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.
...a brisk, bumptious read, full of preposterous names, surreal imagery and daft sound effects.
Andy is a comic genius and we absolutely loved this, particularly loved the fact that Charlotte could dive to the back of the book and play Emperor Nurbison's evil striding music for herself on the piano...
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.
