Manfred the Baddie

By (author) John Fardell

Kidnapping inventors, stealing from art museums, conducting acts of piracy on the high seas. Will Manfred ever learn his lesson? He is even nasty to his own henchmen! John Fardell’s inventive story and richly detailed artwork combine to make an exciting, hilarious book that children will want to read time and time again.

Reviews of Manfred the Baddie

Fardell is making a remarkable multi-pronged foray into the world of literature…a gloriously colourful adventure – Scotland on Sunday. If it is the fall-out from bad behaviour you are looking for, look to Manfred the Baddie – Daily Telegraph. …The illustrations are sublime. Each page is almost book in itself, presenting something new to look at every time. And the sting in the tale is perfect – Hampstead & Highgate Express. The art of the comic book is put to rich use in this picture book, where there is a complex interweaving of words and pictures – Brilliant sequence of antics that children will pore over – Books for Keeps.
