Description of this Book

Lord Curfew has been returned to Dullitch, but things are not as they seem. The real Lord Curfew was brutally murdered and now an evil impostor sits on his throne. Ruthless and hungry for power, he will do anything to sustain his disguise ...and people have started to notice. But, this impostor is a pawn of a much darker force. One that's older than Illmoor itself ...Meanwhile, elsewhere in Illmoor ...King Groan Teethgritt, his brother Gape, and Gordo Goldeaxe discover an ancient and valuable hammer that leads them back to Dullitch. Little do they know they have just unearthed a crucial part of Dullitch's past. Can old heroes reunitre to save the city once again?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'David Lee Stone is a wonderfully mad new talent to watch. He has a truly original comic voice and you won't forget his hysterically hopeless (rather than heroic) characters in a hurry!' -- Wendy Cooling 'Easy to read and consistently amusing in the wry Terry Pratchett/Douglas Adams style.' -- The School Librarian 20051204 'many comical elements and a touch of Mervyn Peake' -- The Children's Bookseller 20051204 '[The Yowler Foul-up] is a zippy, highly efficient read with a natural, unforced wit and a matter-of-fact heartlessness that never seems mean-spirited.' -- SFX Magazine 20040801
