David Walliams’s first foray into the realm of science fiction and fantasy is an unqualified triumph, giving his trademark outrageous humour and love of the grotesque a fantastically futuristic slant. A sheltered young prince must do battle with a motley collection of mythical monsters and beasties in a twenty-second century London in ruins.
Fly into a fiery and fantastical future with No. 1 bestselling author David Walliams, in an epic adventure of myth and legend, good and evil, and one small boy who must save the world… Illustrated by the artistic genius Tony Ross!
It is 2120 and London is in ruins.
The young Prince Alfred has never known a life outside Buckingham Palace – but when strange goings-on breach its walls and stalk the corridors in the dead of night, he is thrust into a world of mystery, adventure and monsters.
And when his mother, the Queen, is dragged away to the Tower of London, Alfred must screw up his courage and battle to save her, himself… and the entire city.
In a future of myths and legends, join the bestselling David Walliams and venture forth into his most enthralling tale yet!
