Waterstones Says

Brilliantly bonkers and chucklesome, Emmett and Mantle’s hugely enjoyable picture book finds a determined creature set out to save his swamp from an avaricious developer. Smuggling a thoughtful story of conservation and climate change into an anarchic knockabout, King of the Swamp will delight and educate all young readers.

From a brand-new picture book duo, this is a striking and unique story perfect for little people interested in climate awareness and looking after nature.

McDarkly lives quietly all on his own, growing orchids in his dank swamp, until one day his peace is disturbed by an arrogant king who wants to turn the swamp into a roller-skate park. McDarkly has ten days to prove that the swamp isn't damp and dark, but an enchanted world. Can he do it, or will he risk losing his home forever?

“Not for the little one”

The little one just wouldn’t pay attention to it, it just didn’t grab them like I was hoping it would.

“Prepare to read this on repeat!”

This is such a clever, fun book. It draws kids in with the stinky swamp, but then packs an emotional punch and has a sneaky environmental message too. The rhyme is seamless and easy to read, while the illustrations... More
