Muddle Earth is not quite like our earth. For a start is has three moons. And of course, the abundance of pink, stinky hogs, sleeping, farting trolls and exploding gas frogs mark it out as something quite extraordinary. In fact, welcome to a world where nothing is quite as it should be, especially for young Joe Jefferson, an ordinary boy who somehow finds himself not only transported to this curious planet, but discovers fairly quickly that he is also its saviour-apparent.
Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's The Edge Chronicles series has built the author/illustrator team a seriously solid fan base of children and young-at-heart fantasy-fevered adults. Muddle Earth will delight them all. Vivid characters--from young, bewildered Joe in his Warrior Hero suit comprising saucepan helmet, dustbin lid shield and toasting fork spear, to the deliciously bad-tempered battle-axe wife of a pointy horned baron--weave their way through this delightful but totally mad book. This is a story that ultimately results in a time honoured tradition: a battle between good, evil and the "sort of OK but just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time".
A fantastic read that should be added to the "what do we read between Harry Potters" lists at home and in schools, Muddle Earth is a funny, clever, completely loony novel with wicked illustrations. Stewart and Riddell are indeed a winning team who may well be able to tempt even the most reluctant of young readers into the library, while ensuring that the older readers (who really should know better!) are well and truly catered for. Age 9 and over. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Prepare for a world of enchanted cutlery,nasty cuddly toys and places and names that will sound very familiar to readers of Lord of the Rings.
I have read several Paul Stewart books and this one ranks very highly . It is a very funny and entertaining parady which is well worth reading.
It lacks description, and rarely uses words other than said when someone is talking. I have to admit it isn't as good as the edge chronicles.
Once again Chris Riddle's illustrations are lovely, giving this book an extra star.****
I really liked this book because it was funny and adventurous, the illustrations were the best illustrations I've ever seen, and the story kept me glued to the pages from start to finish.
I would definately recommend that you read this book.
Also, I will be looking into the edge chronicles as these sound interesting. I am sure they are written for a different audience from what I have read in the reviews. THIS book is fun and should not be expected to reach thriller scale, though there are some really funny battles with flying wardrobes etc.
It is rare to find a book without death and deep demonism implied or described. This is a book free of such effects but with a fairytale element nonetheless. Enjoy it!
