Publisher's summary

The very unexpected fourth book in The Glothic Tales Trilogy 

"Quick March, the planet Earth needs to be saved!"

Not from alien attack, nuclear destruction, or even being hit by a misguided comet. No, Earth needs to be saved from making millions of years of painful losses for Gloth, and it falls to March Gregorian, eldest son and heir to February the Twenty-Ninth, the Supreme Potentate of the Twelve Sun Systems of Gloth, to find a way to finally make Earth profitable. 

The obvious starting point in such a difficult assignment is, of course, to do some quick research and then ascertain the most lucrative tradable commodity a planet has to offer. Once that is clear, simply arrange to export a whole lot more of it and the problem is solved. 

As March prepares to make his first journey to Earth, he is sure he knows which Earth product will solve the problem. 

Salmon.

Unfortunately for March, all does not go well on the salmon front, and he discovers all too quickly that Earth is not an easy place to manage, understand, or to squeeze a profit from. 

Faced with losing face with his father by returning to Gloth empty handed, March fears that his salmon failure may lead to serious doubts about his ability to remain heir to the Supreme Potentate. 

Luckily, however, his fears of losing his right to the throne evaporate in a flash when he stumbles upon a remarkable alternative solution. 

Swedes.

Don’t panic if you haven’t heard the first three Glothic Tales, as all is explained in March, so you won’t miss a trick. 

Listen to March, the hum-along, foot-tapping, fourth hilarious Glothic Tale.

Entertaining installment

This is a funny follow up to the earlier works. However I didn’t find it as engrossing or action packed. It’s a nice story in line with the humor but missing the plot, action and backstory of some of the other books. Overall a good one if you’re into the series, but not the first book to pick up from it.

I received this book for free in exchange for a review. (I think... although I might have got it on sale... I lose track!)

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
