The World Is Badly Made
In which bedlam threatens to envelope the world, unless Oscar can do something about it—which he's willing to consider, providing it involves an enormous breakfast first.
“Oscar did not expect his first assignment to involve gallivanting across foreign lands following clinically insane animals chasing fabled stones upon forgotten islands with silly names. He’d already mangled a taxi, a hearse and an aeroplane while fighting villains intent on turning the earth inside out.
And that was just getting to the airport.
It was most peculiar then, for him to awake and find an entire palatial entourage around his bed begging him to do precisely this. He’d instead been hoping for a nice breakfast with a pot of hot-fin, especially since his bed was warm and fluffy.”
When the palace of Arabesque’s aide d’camp, a cat named the Tremblees, stumbles upon a translation of an ancient language that reveals the existence of a fabled stone, he vows to find it for reasons of greed and vengeance.
With a dead dog stuck to a car bonnet, some burst luggage, a blind bus driver and an enormous number of olives, it becomes a race for Oscar, his colleague Meesha and the Tieress of Arabesque to prevent the Tremblees from plunging Arabesque back into the Era of Bedlam, a horror that plagued the land a thousand years ago.
