Evil Emperor Penguin
Laura Ellen Anderson
(David Fickling Books)
Everyone loves penguins don’t they? Not this penguin – Evil Emperor Penguin plots to take over the world from his evil head quarters in Antarctica. Alongside his trusty, but hapless, sidekicks Eugene and Number 8, he devises evil plans to match his evil inventions. Just when maybe one of his dastardly plans will succeed, he encounters Evil Cat, his arch-enemy rival.
Finally gathered together in this great compendium of the very popular stories from the Phoenix Presents comic, the results are hilarious. Because the drawings by Laura Ellen Anderson are so wonderfully witty and evocative and the storylines delightfully bonkers, this is a must.
