Cedric and Zandor
Cedric is an unremarkable boy whose only ambition in life is to become a clown and perhaps be beaten up a bit less often. His life changes when Zandor, a mighty warrior, crosses over through a portal to seek his help in saving the Kingdom of Skarn. A wizard’s prophecy foretold that a boy on the other side of the portal had great powers and would be able to use them to defeat Skarn’s enemies. Unfortunately, Zandor goes to the wrong address and finds Cedric instead, who has no powers and can’t even keep the attention of his television-addicted parents.
Cedric first learns of the danger he is in when a giant chicken attacks him shortly after his arrival in Skarn. After Zandor saves him, the villainous King Flak pays them a visit and promises that he will kill them all as soon as a truce between the two kingdoms ends in five days’ time. Cedric is struck by inspiration and starts to juggle. King Flak believes this unusual act is a powerful new magic, and runs away in fear. For the first time, Cedric believes that he might actually have something to offer Zandor’s tribe, and that he might have found a place where he can be successful and popular. When he learns that King Flak killed Zandor’s father, he becomes committed to the cause.
NEW – Cedric and the Prophecy
Cedric Sedgewick is still settling into his part-time job as deputy king of Skarn, a world he visits after school through a portal at the end of his street. By now, his friends in the kingdom know that he is not the chosen one spoken of in a wizard’s mysterious prophecy, but he has done a good job in averting war with the villainous Hackle tribe and impressed them with some of his magic tricks.
Skarn faces a new threat, though, when the prophecy speaks of another chosen one who will bring fire and destruction to the kingdom. As King Zandor and the others prepare for battle, Cedric’s sister Stacey tries to carry out some repairs to make sure that the crumbling castle does not fall down by itself.
Cedric and the others must deal with Binky, the Hackle tribe’s most bloodthirsty warrior, who has an unusual hobby, while trying to avoid being eaten by the giant chickens that roam the woods. If the prophecy is correct, the new visitor will bring with him an even more deadly beast and put all of their lives in danger.
