The Misadventures of Merdyn the Wild.
Merdyn the Wild is from the Dark Ages. He's the world's greatest Warlock (don't call him a wizard), banished to the 21st century for bad behaviour. Rose is a totally ordinary girl, on a mission to mend her broken family.
Bubbles is Rose's guinea pig. He just poos a lot. When Rose bumps into Merdyn and discovers what he is, she quickly realises that he could be just what she needs.
Rose agrees to help Merdyn navigate the confusing ways of the modern world (things like: the lidded bowl in the bathroom is NOT a sink, it's a TOILET, so definitely DON'T wash your face in it) if Merdyn gives her a spell to fix her family in return. Now they just need to hide him in the shed without Rose's mum noticing, track down Merdyn's magic staff and find a way to send Merdyn back through time to the Dark Ages. What could possibly go wrong...?
From the writer of the Paddington 2 movie and writer and star of Horrible Histories, this hilariously silly, heartfelt adventure with a historical twist is perfect for fans of David Walliams and David Baddiel.

Cannot really comment upon book as it is a Christmas gift for my daughter, however knowing the writing talents of the author I am sue she will be engrossed!
Being up in the sticks (the wilds of West Yorkshire), I was a little anxious that something would blip, and we wouldn't actually receive the personalised and signed copy from Simon. However, all went perfectly smoothly - super service, many thanks!
Such a fun read for kids and adults alike!
This is an amazing book and I adore everything about it - can’t wait to read more of Simon’s books but the package it was delivered in was open when it came to be as if it wasn’t taped down properly! Thankfully the book was still in there
I started reading this wonderfully funny tale to my Year 4 class earlier this week and we all love it.
It's very quickly gone to the top of their Christmas book lists.
Ordering from Pickled Pepper was easy and customer service was excellent.
Living up in Yorkshire, I was delighted when I found out this shop did postal deliveries especially to get the chance to get a signed copy. My copy arrived in superb condition. Will happily shop here again!
