WARNING! As of today, there are only 7 CHILDREN who have ever read this book and lived to tell about it. 95 CHILDREN successfully read the first chapter, but upon beginning chapter 2, they started BLABBERING in some language known only as "flibberish." 38 CHILDREN made it halfway through this wretched book before they began SUCKING THEIR THUMBS THROUGH THEIR NOSES. If you're VERY BRAVE, perhaps you are willing to TAKE YOUR CHANCES. Be sure that you have told your family who gets your favorite toys if you DO NOT SURVIVE this book. Read it now, IF YOU DARE. But don't say you haven't been warned, for this is the story that unfolds the MYSTERIES OF THE UNDERWORLD.read more
After a run in of the Goblin and Brownie variety dubs Elliot as a hero in the eyes of a few select citizens of the Underworld once upon a Halloween, his future is set in motion, and it's one he couldn't possibly expect, especially since he has no idea it's coming! The start to a great new Middle Grade series....you DO NOT want to pass this up! Elliot is such a likeable character and his family is so quirky you almost wonder how they fit together...but like all families, they do and quite well. The author's engaging writing style not only keeps us up to date on what's happening in our world versus the Underworld, but it draws readers right in by talking directly to them...er, us. Heed the warning on both the back of the book and within the first few pages though! As it seems several other readers didn't quite make it through the book in one piece! *gulp* Glad I was among the lucky that did! (..or did I? AH!) Seriously...a FUN time to be had! Happy reading for readers of all ages....and a highly recommended choice from me.read more
