Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Muddle Earth.

As the third moon rises over Muddle Earth's Perfumed Bog, the twinkling lights are lit on a small houseboat, home to a wizard, Randalf, and his familiar, a very sarcastic budgie called Veronica. Randalf is in trouble: he's stony broke. He's just spent his last silver pipsqueak. There's only one way for a wizard to make cash on Muddle Earth, and that's by doing some magic.

There's just one problem: Randalf has lost his spell book. He's just got a fragment of paper with half a spell on it, telling him how to summon a Great Warrior Hero. The last one, Quentin the Cake-Baker, wasn't a great success. But this time, it's going to be different.

Meanwhile, life is about to change beyond recognition for Joe Jefferson, an ordinary schoolboy on ordinary Earth, and his dog, Henry. He is about to be introduced to a world of ogres and goblins, batbirds, pink stinky hogs, flying cupboards, and terrifying teddy bears.

    " hard to read. kind of all over the place, which is surprising for this prolific author of such imaginative tales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 2/7/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corinneecomly | 2/2/2014

    " Enjoyed this goofy fantasy story of a young boy who is pulled into Muddle Earth as a warrior-hero. A spoof on Narnia and Tolkien's books. Lots of goofy events like attacking wardrobes and helmets of sarcasm. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mazohyst (Edel) | 1/26/2014

    " I remember reading this when I was younger. Although I don't remember the details, all the creatures and characters never ceased to make me giggle. Even after five years, I remember this book. :] Great read for a younger audience! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ki | 1/23/2014

    " Definatly for a younger audience, but it is funny, playful, and has the best bad guy in any number of worlds. I will be buying this and reading it to my boys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wade Hunt | 1/14/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/4/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 11/2/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Holway | 9/7/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zedxed | 8/8/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mandy | 1/17/2013

    " Nice little journey into the world of Muddle Earth, where the moons rise occasionally, and the elves do all the hard work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Gonçalves | 12/30/2012

    " One of my most memorable childrens books that I read as a teenager :P "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Jones | 12/14/2012

    " June 2009 - This is a hilarious trilogy-in-one-volume for kids. If Shrek was a riff on Lord of the Rings instead of fairy tales, this is what it would be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 7/28/2012

    " fun, very "british" juvenile fiction. Silly yet interesting. Fun and light. Good if you have spare time, but not remarkable enough to say it's a must-read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 6/26/2012

    " Ha ha! This was absolutely wild! Thoroughly reccomended for a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawna | 5/9/2012

    " This was an OK read and I'm sure my kids are going to love it but I didn't like it as well as The Edgewood Chronicles. The illustrations as usual were great and highly entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 3/28/2012

    " Remember reading this when I was younger. The characters are funny and charismatic and the plot is surprisingly gripping. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joanie | 3/14/2012

    " I read this with my nine year old son. I would fall asleep when it was his turn to read a chapter...this was one dull book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 1/31/2012

    " This book was a lot of fun. I would have to say that it is similar to books by Terry Pratchett, in that the author is making fun of the whole fantasy genre. Older kids, about 4th grade and beyond will love this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janie Hepler | 1/29/2012

    " A hilarious parody of the Lord of The Rings. "
