ABOUT THE BOOK
In Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King, Kid Crazy Carlson longs for adventure in the far-off and bustling City of Ever. His world changes when he meets a strange droid called Denunzio who warns Kid of the city’s grumpy Kilowatt King, a rude man who forces the citizens to sing for him. Despite the robot’s warning, Kid decides to make the voyage to the city and the two set sail in a car made of bread through beautiful and bizarre landscapes, passing extraordinary sights like candy bar men, robot travelers and dancing elephants, before finally reaching the city. When Kid eventually comes face to face with the rotten ruler, he decides it’s time someone teaches him a lesson in manners: the power of the word “please.”
