Iznogoud is the evil Grand Vizier of Baghdad under the reign of the much-loved Caliph, Haroun al Plassid and he has one aim in life - " to become Caliph instead of the Caliph".
The Iznogoud books all have a high fun factor and many of them make me laugh out loud due to their clever parodies and farcical events that frequently snowball out of control. Some of the jokes in these stories stuck in my head for over twenty years and I was extremely pleased to be able to rediscover the stories due to their republication.
The combination of imaginative stories, high-quality drawings and funny events means that I highly recommend Iznogoud books to those who like this type of book. If you like Asterix, you will also like Iznogoud.
