Edwin is trying to eat his boring vegetables (a new rule by Minister Jill to stop Edwinland subjects eating so much junk food), when he hears someone crying for help. An old hermit called Baxter runs into town yelling about a terrible monster that has gobbled up his goats and cow. It’s called a Voolith.
Edwin – sick of his vegetables, and wanting to be a true king (who doesn’t have to eat vegetables) announces that he will go and defeat this Voolith in single combat (not actually knowing what that means.) But Emperor Nurbison (from Nurbisonia next door), sees another chance to defeat Edwin and takeover Edwinland. And if he can get Edwin gobbled up by a Voolith, all the better!
Another zany, wacky adventure with King Flashypants Edwin and his crew. Super funny with hilarious illustrations.
