    Summary:

    In the wake of his highly acclaimed book Jack and Mary in the Land of Thieves, Andy Jones is back with Jack, the King of Ashes, another riotously funny Jack tale that is as moving as it is hilarious. This time Jack, the "King of Ashes," spends all his time hove off in the coal box, until one day he shakes off his ashes and sets out on an adventure that includes sneaky robbers, a "famous missing princess with reward attached," an always-surprising canine sidekick, a royal wedding, a lovelorn rooster-puppet, a conniving ship's captain, corpses, curses, kisses, a coat and a whole lot more! Steeped in Newfoundland folk tradition, Jack, the King of Ashes shows Jones at the top of his form. His quirky and delightful humour is unstoppable.
