Comedy fantasy series with a Pratchetteque/Carry On Blackadder twist, but written for children. A slightly more sophisticated read than the Lost Diaries, with a bit more edge.
The Dark Forest is a world. Cities, towns and villages exist like islands in a green sea, while in the Forest itself live hermits, wizards and all manner of weird and wonderful creatures – some invented, some strangely familiar.
BOOK 1: GOODKNYGHT
The story of Will, swineherd and whipping-boy to the ghastly Symon, who constantly reminds him of the awful time he’s going to have when he accompanies Symon to Knyghtschool. Fate lends a hand, when Will instead finds himself on a quest with the mysterious Rune-master, to recover the lost treasure of the Dark Forest – a quest which is far more dangerous! Involving a Runemaster and a lost treasure… (Oh yes, and sometimes he has to wear a dress, too.)
Be amused. Be very amused…
