Zapple is truly blooming in the field of zany children's entertainment like the majestic wild cabbages of Golden Yore.
I wasn't actually intending to read it at all - I just downloaded it for my nephew, but after I saw him giggling on the couch with it I thought I'd check it out because he doesn't read. I had to wait till his Mum had finished with it too. We both agreed the author reminds us of Spike Milligan - we grew up with his stories. I've read other work by this author and my theory is, if they write something good that I like (or the kids like) GET MORE OF IT.
The author seems quite aware he is writing for adults and kids and there's plenty of material peppered in here that will keep adults entertained. There's an artist called Salvador von Hirst for instance who is a bit of a take on Salvador Dali whose modern art seems very connected to this nonsense world.
Duke and Michel, plus Boris the rat, are incredibly funny. The humour is quirky and unpredictable, a constant surprise. I laughed out loud throughout this intense reading experience. At times I cried. The crying times corresponded with the virtual book throwing. I loved Duke and Michel so much that I wanted to have a say in what happens to them. Votes for readers!
Study the cover. Great artwork by Elliott Beavan, that also contains clues to upcoming events in the book. 'The King Tingaling Painting' is for kids who appreciate a story that reflects the difficulties and struggles of life. With wild jokes. And also for adults who want to experience truly original, powerful writing.
The Master, the child-catching, destroyer of worlds, has taken Michel's family and Duke's Country Dog-Premium Nibbles and the boy and hound set out to retrieve them.
Although the story is written in a very chatty style, the standard of language is very good and would enhance children's vocabulary.
This is a very enjoyable book.
Zapple books are always rare treats for kids and grownups alike, and perfect for reading to youngsters. Don't worry that this Duke and Michel tale is part of a series: Zapple orients you adroitly and... off you go, into a weird and wacky world full of incomparable Zapple humor.
In this outing, Duke & Michel have a mission: rescue Michel’s family and Duke’s Premium Nibbles from The Mater, villain of the piece. But wait, the fun doesn't stop there: Duke and Michel become pawns in a struggle between the Master and King Tingaling, furious about portrait painted of him of him with a pineapple, riches and his pig, Buttercup.
Buttercup alone is worth the price of admission to this fun farce.
