In order to reverse this permanent spell, King Midas has to find the River Cijam but what has this information cost him this time? Once at the river he has to find Old Gollop. Alas Old Gollop has something stuck in his throat so King Midas has to find some flandy-bakes! To do that he first has to get past the Mumbo and Witch Wuzzleflump, who although looks nice to start with soon changes! Who is Ackerbackus?
We really enjoyed reading this book. Yes it has a few scary parts depending on the sensitivity of your children but it has a lot of laugh out loud parts too and a great ending. Recommended!
