Overview

Gerald finds himself in love with the beautiful princess and the only way he can marry her is to tale over the shambolic, bankrupted and immoral kingdom of her stupid father, the king.
Having got the king out of the way - in a way he could not have imagined - he now has to deal with the corruption, starvation and senseless slavery of spirit that has beset this insane place. He stumbles from accident to accident and, somehow, manages to find order, beauty and love, all at the same time ... with the help of some unlikely characters, including the aged Harry Hawk, a reluctant sun and a whole host of unlikely people.
This is not a serious book but it has a serious message ... seriously!

This book is best read sitting down as that was how it was written. It is also written slower for the slower readers and we would suggest that you keep your reading speed below 30,000 words per minute lest blurring, vertigo, lack of comprehension, measles and political correctness occur. You could also be booked (ha! ha!) by the reading police, for speeding, when they stop reading. Another suggestion is that you move your eyes and/or your head back and forwards rather than moving the book in front of your eyes. This is a new development in reading technique and, although cutting-edge technology, has now been tested successfully on 2,500 sheep, 30 goats, 400 emus and 3 humans and all experienced vast improvements in their romantic lives. Their reading suffered but who cares when you’re in love.
This is an unfairy story – a fairy story without fairies. The Fairy Union complained about this to the Arbitration Council and I have now agreed to include them in the sequel. There are many other people not included (my mother, the Pope, St. Francis of Assisi, Mussolini to name a few) and if you feel a need to be included in the sequel to the sequel your claim will need to be into the Council within three days, after which they break for their 15-year-long Christmas holiday.
This is a story for children and adults alike (though they’re not really alike are they?) but there are a few big words (like wheelbarrow and porcupine) that adults may find difficult. I suggest that you keep a child within yelling distance to help you with the difficult bits.

Welcome to my books, to my many genres ... I write in every genre but there is one theme – to help you find peace, your place in the world & to rediscover the you that you lost. I share your hope that my words will help you unlock the prison you’re in, the current drama you can’t find your way out of. I share your hope and willingness to find your passion, your wings and take on the life you’re born to experience. It's my hope for me as well. I spent twenty years in the wrong occupation. 1 year of accounting & I knew we didn’t fit each other. Why did I stay? Year later, I found I’d stayed bored & desperate to please my father and my wife. I couldn't please them. I can only please me. Once I’d realised I was in a rut – a grave with the ends kicked out – I was stuck. I didn’t know what else to do. Also, the income provided for my family. I had responsibilities & had to go on. I couldn’t let them down. But I let me down. I followed my father's example – sticking in a job that sucked me dry – & became more angry & depressed. The divorce was traumatic, sad and releasing but, work-wise, I quietly slipped sideways into teaching and then, because of my 20 wasted years, facilitated personal development courses and men’s groups. I quickly realised I was a lousy accountant and slowly realised I was a great teacher. I loved it and, 20 years later, still do. If you’re misaligned you can't give (or receive) your best till you get wise about the choices you’re making in your actions, words & thoughts. I hope my words can help bring you back to wisdom, home & to the peace you know is there. The dream I’ve realised for myself is the dream I have for you. I write for both of us.
