The Eye of Zoltar by Jasper Fforde

"The King and Queen had told me she needed educating, and a fact-finding mission to the wildly unpredictable Cambrian Empire might be just the thing"

The third instalment of the Last Dragonslayer series is, put simply, great fun. I love Fforde's zany tales, and Jennifer Strange is such an endearing character. 

Throw in a dangerous quest ( is it a quest, well it sort of is a quest, but unofficially) in a treacherous land, with a ten year old tour guide, a trainee wizard and a disguised princess of Snood ( that disguise isn't fooling anyone).

Off to find the Eye of Zoltar, will Kazam's acting head triumph or fall victim, the statistics don't look good. Chock full of giggles and unlikely adventures this will keep your inner child entertained.

5 out of 5 plastic dragons make good pool toys.
