The next middle-grade rhyming novel from the award-winning author of Zorgamazoo
Prince Puggly of the muddy, terminally unfashionable Kingdom of Spud is surprised when he receives an invitation to a lavish ball in the far more chic Kingdom of Spiff. Puggly is sure that the Spiffs will take one look at him and laugh him out of their kingdom. And thats exactly what they do. . . . But then Puggly meets Francesca, the bookish Princess of Spiff, and together the two set out to teach Francescas Spiffian countrymen an absurd lesson in style. Award-winning author Robert Paul Weston once again delivers a humorous fantasy in rhyming verse that just begs to be read aloud. And this time, it comes with a message thats sure to impress: Theres more to a person than how they are dressed.
Are You a Believer in Fanciful Things? In Pirates and Dragons and Creatures and Kings?
Then sit yourself down in a comfortable seat, with maybe some cocoa and something to eat, and I?ll spin you the tale of Katrina Katrell, a girl full of courage (and daring, as well!), who down in the subway, under the ground, saw something fantastical roaming around . . .
What was it she saw? I?d rather not say. (Who?s ever heard of a Zorgle, anyway?)
But if you are curious, clever and brave, if intrepid adventure is something you crave, then open this book and I?ll leave it to you to uncover the secret of ZORGAMAZOO!
Join Morty the Zorgle and Katrina on a fantastically illustrated, you?ll-wanna-read-every-word-aloud, sophisticated rhyming adventure for kids of all ages!
In this debut novel, Weston spins the tale of Katrina Katrell, a girl full of courage (and daring, as well!), who down in the subway, under the ground, sees something fantastical roaming around. What is it she sees?
