About this item

Edwin isn't any ordinary boy. He is a king with a crown, his own suit of armor, a castle with secret passages and water slides -- oh, and the most horribly evil man in the universe living next door.

Emperor Nurbison is permanently up to no good. He wants Edwin's kingdom for himself, so when the Edwinland piggy bank runs out of money, he seizes his opportunity.

None of this could possibly lead to a thrilling adventure with action, chocolate, and snappy crocodiles -- could it?
