It's a tough life. Well, it is if you live in a world that is beset by a wide variety of various monsters who are all intent on harrasing the populous and frightening the livestock of the farms.
So, in order to deal with these monsters, you would need a hero, yes?
You need someone who could be made Patron Saint and Minister for the Environment. So, step forward, George.
Unfortunately, George is vertically challenged, poor and the owner of some rusting armour.
However, there is one ting that is very much in George's favour. Whist touring the tyrol one year he discovered a cake which is unlike any other cake in the world. For the recipe to which this cake is made tames monsters.
For the first time in his previously less-than-appealing life, George us wanted and welcomed by everyone, to the extent that he is declared a government minister by King Freddie and his Prime Minister, Merlin
Even though George becomes famous throughout the land, he is still pretty poorly off in financial terms.
But he does succeed in repelling a Scottish invasion, improving relations with France, launching the world's first trades union and becoming involved in the game of cricket.
Although this book is aimed at children 7 and up, the biting social satire and acidic with will please adults of all ages, too!
