When rumours of a huge and terrifying monster called Gizimoth reach Edwinland, King Edwin Flashypants decides that to be a proper king, he needs to go and fight it.

Beautiful, inventive and laugh-out loud funny.

Sue Perkins

Riley’s second King Flashypants tale of folderol and foolishness is as much fun as the first (think Monty Python and the Holy Grail for 7-year-olds), with a bit of poo-humor thrown in for giggles. The author’s cartoon illustrations combine with occasional trickery of typesetting to hit the right mix of deadpan and slapstick.
