Warrior Number One is the third book I've read in Franklin Watts' fast and fun Edge series - and, to my mind, it's the funniest thing Andy Briggs has written.
Meet Carl - small, thin, geeky and obsessed with a computer game called Barbarianz. Carl is battling his way through the various levels to try to reach the lofty position of Warrior Number One. I don't want to give too much away other than to say that, when Carl finally achieves his goal and a mysterious character known as The Sheriff comes to ask him to be a real hero - that's when the fun starts.
The reaction to Carl being introduced as Warrior Number One is genuine laugh-out-loud stuff and, when our hero finally has to prove himself in battle, the slapstick keeps on coming. This is great book - and one I've now read twice because I enjoyed it so much the first time.
As with Freak of Fortune by Ali Sparkes and Lifters by Joe Craig, Warrior Number One manages to pack plenty of action and character development into a small amount of space. That's what makes these adventures ideal for reluctant readers who would shy away from larger, thicker books.
