King of the Swamp

McDarkly lives a quiet life, growing flowers in the swamp, until his peace is shattered by a roller-skating king who wants to concrete over his home! Can McDarkly save the swamp in time? Or will he lose his home forever? 

Waterstones says: Brilliantly bonkers and chucklesome, Emmett & Mantle’s hugely enjoyable picture book finds a determined creature set out to save his swamp from an avaricious developer. Smuggling a thoughtful story of conservation and climate change into an anarchic knockabout, King of the Swamp will delight & educate all young readers.
