‘King of the Swamp is a striking and unique story that shows us that beauty can be found in even the darkest of places. McDarkly lives a quiet solitary life, growing flowers in the swamp, until his peace is disturbed by a roller-skating king who wants to destroy his home. McDarkly is given ten days to prove that the swamp isn’t damp and dark, but an enchanted world. Can he do it, or will he risk losing his home forever?’ 

“It’s not every day that you discover such a strong and confident debut talent like Catherine Emmett, and her text combined with Ben Mantle’s exceptional illustrations, means this book is a feast for the imagination!” Holly Tonks, Senior Commissioning Editor at Simon & Schuster
