Jeg fikk tilsendt denne boka fra Egmont, for å gi en ærlig anmeldelse av boka. Tusen takk!
Jeg ble lovet at denne boka skulle være morsom, men jeg kan ikke si at jeg syntes den var det. Humoren er bok mer tilrettelagt den yngre garden, og kan virke veldig barnslig hvis den blir lest av litt eldre barn.
Derimot er bildene nydelige og morsomme, viser karaktertrekk til de forskjellige veldig ...more
Jeg fikk denne boka i posten fra forlaget. Jeg leser ikke mye barnebøker, men noen ganger er de greie, ettersom de er så lettleste.
Denne boka var et unntak, samtidig som den ikke var det. Den var lettlest nok, da jeg leste hele ila en time, samtidig som den var litt tung. Det var nemlig en hel del frem og tilbake story—messig som virket unødvendig.
Noe av det er derimot greit, da det gav en moral.
« Leggere Il Re Bambino e l'Imperato Cattivo è stato come tornare bambina, riscoprendo quelle genuine sensazioni di meraviglia che un po' vanno perdute con il sopraggiungere dell'età adulta. Un racconto ironico e divertente, pungente e sprezzante che fa di un umorismo diretto e sorprendente la sua arma migliore ( inoffensiva, s'intende! ); presentandosi fin dalle primissime battute con uno stile linguistico fresco ed irriverente, ...more
King Flashypants is a read-in-one-go-and-then-read-again-right-away book. I know I did.
Also, now I know the real reason I've never come across a bottomless pit. I mean, how long would it take to dig one of those...

Okrutny Urwison, władca sąsiedniego królestwa, wykorzystując okazję, by wkroczyć na ...more
This book is supposed to be funny
but I didn't think it was at all. Example,
it talks of sticking toes in your nose,
itchy bums (which ends up being a
somewhat major part of the story)
& to me just stupid things I most
definitely would not let my kid
The pictures go well with the book
and the plot keeps moving making it
easy for kids to be entertained, I
however was not but that is just ...more
Maar verder lag ik dubbel, koning Edwin (sorry, ik noem hem bij zijn Engelse naam) was een goede koning, een dappere, hij heeft alleen nog veel te leren over het beheren van geld (arme Jill).
I read this to a six-year-old boy and he loved it. It was fun for me to read as well, which is great as otherwise story-time can be a pain.
A funny book with wacky pictures, silly character names and even music at the back to learn the evil Emperor's striding theme.
A fantastic book for kids just getting into reading; I've been recommending it to other parents.
See oli minu jaoks selline „Möh“ raamat. Midagi hullu polnud, aga uusi osasid pole küll vaja oodata ega lugeda.
Lots of deadpan humor in this story, and the accompanying illustrations just add to the fun. Read it. Trust me.
I read "King Flashypants and the Evil Emperor" to my 6-year-old daughter. She absolutely loved it, laughed out loud often and chanted "read the book, read the book" whenever I took a break to make a few notes. So much so that this review will be more about feelings than a description of the narrative. Have I mentioned I loved it too? Well I did, in fact I got quite as excited as my little one.
The plentiful jokes for adults in the form of witty asides and the ...more
