The King of Zard

Added to cart
The King of Zard is a fairytale about a pandemic, written in verse. It mocks the government’s response to Covid-19 in a humorous style. Social distancing, group-think, bureaucracy, face masks, dodgy science and government interference all get a bashing in this short, easy to read story. Inspiration came from stories like The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen and Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift - stories which entertain both adults and children whilst highlighting the absurdities of human society. The story is set in an unspecific time and place but it has a European medieval feel to it.

“…witty, clever, comical but with a ring of truth and a deep message.”

“…raises some poignant questions about how we want to be governed and how we want to live our lives. A recommend read for anyone who feels that something isn't quite right.”
