When eight-year-old Elliot Penster unwittingly saves a brownie from a group of goblins on Halloween night, he becomes their reluctant king and champion in a war against the evil goblins.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
When he was eight years old, Elliot Penster started an interspecies war. Don't blame him. As anyone who has ever started an interspecies war will tell you, it's not that difficult to do.

Elliot had spent the evening trick-or-treating. Everyone thought he was dressed as a hobo, but he wasn't. He didn't have money for a Halloween costume, and so he'd just gone in his everyday clothes.

Back Cover:
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 your dare. But don't say you haven't been warned, for this is the story that unfolds the mysteries of the Underworlds.
