Who else could think of a book like this?, 16 Sep 2006
Muddle Earth is in Danger. It's three moons, it's Perfumed Bog, and it's Pink Stinky Hogs and Exploding Gas Frogs are threatened by the schemes of a sinister villain, Dr Cuddles...
As you can see the story is set by is title, in Muddle Earth. It all starts off when Quentin the Cake decorator wasn't good enough to be a warrior hero. So Randalf the wise, the best (and only) wizard in the whole in Muddle Earth (though he only knows 1 spell) summons a new warrior hero, this ends up to be Joe Jefferson (a 12 year old schoolboy from normal earth) and his faithful hound, Henry. He is kitted out with the "best" equipment around, the Wellies of Power, the Woolly Gloves of Determination, the Trident of Trickery (a toasting fork) and the Helmet of Sarcasm (a saucepan). Suddenly Joe is expected to wrestle dragons, fight ogres and defeat sinister flying wardrobes. Tagging along are Norbert the Not-Very-Big a wimpy, soft hearted ogre, obsessed with cooking (though he is rubbish), and Veronica, Randalf's bossy, sarcastic budgie whose sarcasm get everyone bursting out laughing along with the famous reaction from Randalf "Shut up Veronica!"
There has been nothing that I have hated from this book it has all been laughter, especially when Veronica steps in with a comment, gets me on the floor all the time, this book has been written well, building a good picture in your head, sometimes the imagination is funnier than the words itself.
I'd recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of random humour from the ages of 10 onwards.
