Prince Albion expects a unique occasion when he starts planning Cockenzie Rood Day to celebrate his kingdom — and himself.

It’s up to a Trueheart, a resourceful prince, and Gubble the troll to stop the zombie before he does some giant damage to the Five Kingdoms.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Prince Albion is planning the perfect Cockenzie Rood Day celebration. There will marching bands, talent competitions, and colorful costumes, and best of all he will be the center of attention. That is until Fiddleduster Squint, the zombie, learns of the fiddle competition. In his current state, the zombie cannot cross the border so with the aid of Shadow and the spy Marley Bagsmith. The zombie has Prince Albion bopped on the head, stuffed in a wheelbarrow, and dragged off to the Howling Arms and set down before him. The screeching and howling of Fiddleduster's fiddle sends Albion into fits of laughter and he quickly makes his escape. The zombie is so incensed by this that he lures the giants Greatover, Meggymould, and Trunkly out of their slumber and encourages them to destroy the Five Kingdoms. While all this mayhem is going on young Gracie Gillypot and Prince Marcus, assisted by Marlon, the bat, and Gubble, the troll, are in hot pursuit in an attempt to rescue the unfortunate Prince Albion. Thrown into this mix are the haughty Prince Arisio, the delightful Dowager Duchess, ancient crones, and a mischievous path. This may be the fifth book in the "Five Kingdoms" series but it is not necessary to read previous books to jump right into this zany adventure. There are subplots aplenty but they are woven into a seamless whole plot with comedy and devilment to spare. The skeletal zombie on the cover will draw readers in and they will not be disappointed. Droll ink sketches are scattered throughout. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
