Mossbelly MacFearsome and the Dwarves of Doom

Publisher: Andersen Press

Formidable dwarf warrior, Mossbelly MacFearsome, is on a quest to save humankind from obliteration. His arch-enemy, Leatherhead Barnstorm, plans to use the almighty Doomstone Sword to release ogres, dragons and other magical creatures into the world, wreaking havoc and destroying the human race. Despite his immense strength and unparalleled bravery, Mossbelly is rendered powerless by the Sword, so requires human assistance to destroy it.

Fortunately, he bumps into ordinary schoolboy Roger, whom he decides looks suitably courageous and heroic. Despite Roger’s protestations, Mossbelly declares him the Destroyer and the unlikely duo embark on a frenetic magical journey across the Scottish Highlands, where they are joined by a wacky Witchwatcher and a feisty, trainee witch who’s a dab hand at karate. But will this motley crew be a match for ruthless Leatherhead and his fearsome army of revolting gorefiends?

Fast-paced and full of surprises, this thoroughly enjoyable tale introduces the unsavoury sport of frog gobbing and culinary delicacies such as mushworm pie. Eccentric characters, an explosive plot and frequent comical misunderstandings between humans and dwarves ensure this hilarious fantasy adventure will delight and entertain young readers from start to finish.
