A hilarious fantastical romp from a talented debut author. Bruno Pockley has a talent. A prodigious talent. But he's only just discovering its worth... When Bruno is sniffed out by a specially trained Trumpenhund as having world-class phartling potential, it's as if all his dreams have come true. Finally, his talent is being recognized! Then he and his classmates are taken to the court of the Knights Trumplar in the Kingdom of Phartesia, where they'll learn to play the ancient Phartlehorn for a performance of epic proportions. Starry-eyed, the children are determined to prove themselves to the magnificent Duke of Phartesia and his beguiling daughter. However, things are not always as they appear - and when Bruno and his friend Grace stumble upon the sickening truth about the Knights Trumplar, the wind is quite literally taken out of their sails.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There are several pretenders to the throne of Roald Dahl - writers such as Andy Stanton and David Walliams have brought us tales brimming with strangeness, humour and imagination, in her first book, M.L. Peel proves she can stand amongst them... This engaging, evocative read has a flotilla of vivid characters and daft ideas - and it's not as crude as you might expect. * We Love This Book *
Full of daft humour and funny characters, it will particularly appeal to boys. * Booktrust *
very amusing with a valuable lesson -- (10 year old reviewer) * Selvedge *
