King of the Swamp - Catherine Emmett


"The next day McDarkly was up before dawn. He rubbed at his eyes and he stifled a yawn.He gathered the plants and the tools he would need. His swamp was at stake so he HAD to succeed!”


In July’s book of the month we meet McDarkly – a purple monster who lives in a smelly, muddy swamp. McDarkly loves his swamp and lives there peacefully until the King arrives with a plan to transform it into his own personal skate park!

Will McDarkly find a way to make the king change his mind? Can he rescue his home, or will it be gone forever?


A hilarious story with an important environmental message, King of the Swamp is sure to have you and your children giggling and thinking in equal measure.
