"Brilliantly original and hilarious. It's nearly as good as one of my books." DAVID WALLIAMS "Two words - such fun!" MIRANDA HART "Beautiful, inventive and laugh-out-loud funny." SUE PERKINS Great to read aloud with children of 5+ and perfect for newly independent readers of 7+. When rumours of a huge and terrifying monster called the Voolith reach Edwinland, King Edwin Flashypants decides that, to be a proper king, he needs to go and fight it. Meanwhile, Emperor Nurbison has had a similar idea, but he has a much sneakier plan for what he can do with the Voolith. And it involves squishing Edwinland. Hold tight for another thrilling Flashypants adventure, with jousting, vegetables, fire-breathing toads and plenty of FOO-HOO-HOOing.

5 stars
We thought this book was fantastic! My son chose it at the book shop so that says everything you need to know about its appeal to a 6 year old boy. Lots of laugh out loud moments and general silliness. We loved the evil yoga, fire toads, strawberry boot lace rescue rope, the book of cool words for emperors' to use and vegetable armour. Plenty of fun illustrations.

This is the second king flashypants book and its even funnier than the first! This is a funny story with really good illustrations. 

My favourite character is Colin the horse. I really like the front cover, it makes you want to read the book.

I'm looking forward to the next book.

This was a very quick read but very funny. It has large writing which is spaced out by pictures.

I have read one other in this series but this book would make sense if you hadn't.

Its a very funny and I would read another

My five-year-old son won this through the site - thank you toppsta -  and couldn't wait for me to read it to him.
 
The cover is bright and appealing with funny illustrations to match the title. The silly  humour is pitched just right for his age and the language is accessible but also a little challenging, however, not to the extent it spoils the flow of reading. 

My son has been laughing out loud and he will be writing his own review when we're finished.

I think this book is very funny because of what they were doing. I also liked the songs that Megan the jester was saying about king Flashypants. Watch out for the Evil Emperor as he is the King's enemy.

I don't think it is quite as good as the first book in this series, however, my son still enjoyed it. It is perhaps because the first one was original and  quite different from what my son has read before. This sequel has the same silliness and humour as the first. My son was particularly enchanted withe the notion of fire breathing toads. He loved the short cartoon at the back of the book about the two headed rat - he thought it was hilarious. (We shared the reading of the book over a few days.)

The story is very funny and had lots of silliness, including a brilliant scene where the emporer gets covered in poo. I really enjoyed this book and would like to read the first one.

This book was good, and the characters were interesting.
This book is about King Edwin FlashyPants, who has promised to fight the Voolith in single combat.
 The chapters were long and slightly stressful to read.
 But I enjoyed it.
I reccomend it to anyone.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it was funny although it didn't make me laugh out loud. King Flashypants was my favourite character because he went to fight the Voolith. It is perfect for 8 and 9 year olds to read alone.

The Evil Emperor was stupid because he kept thinking up plans which didn't work.  King Edwin Flashypants was pretty intelligent (more than the Evil Emperor) because he didn't fall for the Emperor's tricks. 

It was an instantly brilliant story because it was full of mystery and it was humorous.  My favourite part was where the Evil Emperor got covered in pooh and looked like a goo monster.

There was nothing I didn't like about this book - it was as good as the first in the series.

I really liked this book. The pictures were good especially the map and I liked the funny things that happened in the book. I really liked the names of the people and the places like King Edwin Flashypants and Globulus. The poster about eating fifty vegetables a day was really silly and made me laugh. I would like to read more King Flashypants books.

Ben (8) read this himself, he loved it and couldn't put it down he loved king flashypants and said he was funny and used words he didn't understand he enjoyed it but in his words 'I want to read something else' he had forgot to. The characters pretty quickly and wasn't as interesting as the cover makes it to be.
