The Book

He just wanted to have some tea after his bath. But as he stepped out of his tub, the world seemed to have gotten much more interesting. A witch on a broomstick, a child with an unusual pet, a cook obsessed with chicken and aliens, a sensitive man with serious anger issues–he met strange people in strange places–and got lost as he tried to take the child back to her home. The two found themselves being chased by wolves and some unfriendly characters, and soon discovered that what was happening was just the tip of the iceberg. . .

This story mixes mirth and wit to let both the young and the old, from tweens to adults, escape into a fun yet strange world. From an apparently disjointed, episodic beginning, it quickly coalesces into a coherent fantasy story in a simple, first-person narrative that younger readers will enjoy, while on the other hand older readers can appreciate the non-linear story that unfolds through the series of adventures. It has elements of a traditional fairy tale such as flying witches, but with the treatment more on the technological than the magical. Some fun, geeky references will entertain enthusiasts of science and mathematics, but can also be glossed over, and completely understanding them is not necessary (nor possible) to enjoy the story.
