Synopses & Reviews
The Tiny Tyrant Tyrannizes Again The world's most diminuative despot is back for six fun-filled stories busting with adventure and hilarity. Join young Ethelbert as he searches for smugglers, has difficulty with long words, and creates giant carnivorous rats for the citizens of Portocristo to enjoy. This companion to The Ethelbertosaurus offers readers more of the miniscule monarch in a large, kid-friendly format.
In Portocristo, anything six-year-old King Ethelbert says goes, no matter how bizarre or harebrained. He transports himself back in time to meet a dinosaur, swaps his country's kids for Ethelbert robots, tests his bodyguard's mettle by putting a price on his own head, and shrinks the world down to his size.
