Gerald the Great of Garokoland
by P J Bradbury
The only way Gerald can marry the beautiful princess is to take over the bankrupted kingdom of her stupid father, the king.
He now has to deal with the corruption, starvation and senseless slavery of spirit that has beset this insane place. He manages to find order, beauty and love, with help from some strange characters. This is not a serious book but it has a serious message ... seriously!
