Egads! There’s trouble afoot in the land of Sausagopolis.
Somebody has been writing naughty poetry – poetry sure to corrupt the minds of innocent, straight-laced citizens.
But don’t fear, dear reader, because help is at hand – Sir Glame, knight hero, and his trusty sidekick Bill (actually a talking horse) – are on a quest to stop the evil Saucy McRascal, author of the Big Book of Fun
This is, however, no traditional fantasy-quest story. The title, Plotless Pointless Pathetic gives more than a little hint to the true nature of the story.
Author Joshua Wright fills the book with corny jokes, inexplicable plot twists and plenty of general silliness. Cartoons on every page provide distractions and humour.
As Glame and Bill blunder their way through the quest, they encounter colossally scary monsters, scrap trucks and freaky fuzzies, who talk cute but act mean.
This hilarious book will appeal to children aged 8 to 12, athough older readers will also find some laughs.
Plotless Pointless Pathetic is the first book from Joshua Wright. One suspects it won’t be his last.
