The Unlikely Rise of Harry Sponge

Hay Festival 2023, 

Fabulously funny actor and author Stephen Mangan and tremendously talented illustrator Anita Mangan bring us laughter, games, drawing and sibling stories. The creators of Escape the Rooms and The Fart that Changed the World are back with their laugh-out-loud new book, The Unlikely Rise of Harry Sponge. Get ready to meet a grumpy king without an heir and five kids competing for the throne in the ‘Crown Duels’. Find out what it takes to be the greatest kid in the kingdom and discover how you should never underestimate the underdog.

Family, 8+ years
