The next middle-grade rhyming novel from the award-winning author of Zorgamazoo!
Prince Puggly of the muddy, terminally unfashionable Kingdom of Spud is surprised when he receives an invitation to a lavish ball in the far more chic Kingdom of Spiff. Puggly is sure that the Spiffs will take one look at him and laugh him out of their kingdom. And that’s exactly what they do. . . . But then Puggly meets Francesca, the bookish Princess of Spiff, and together the two set out to teach Francesca’s Spiffian countrymen an absurd lesson in style. Award-winning author Robert Paul Weston once again delivers a humorous fantasy in rhyming verse that just begs to be read aloud. And this time, it comes with a message that’s sure to impress: There’s more to a person than how they are dressed.
"Like Zorgamazoo (2008), a novel in rhyme, anything but sedate."—Kirkus Reviews
"These couplets beg to be read aloud. . . . the playful language and satisfying story have extensive middle-grade appeal."—Booklist
