9780142422311: Crap Kingdom

THE CHOSEN ONE MUST BE RETRIEVED FROM EARTH
HE WILL BRING DOWN THE WALL AND RESTORE THE KINGDOM TO GLORY
HIS NAME IS TOM PARKING
With this mysterious yet oddly ordinary-looking prophecy, Tom's fate is sealed: he's been plucked from his life and whisked away to a magical kingdom to be its Chosen One.
There's just one problem: The kingdom is mostly made of garbage from Earth. Okay, well, two problems: the king hates Tom. Also, the princess likes to wear fake mustaches. And being Chosen One seems to consist mainly of cleaning out rats' noses at the Royal Rat-Snottery.
So, basically, the kingdom sucks.
When Tom turns down the job of Chosen One, he thinks he's making a smart decision. But when Tom discovers he's been replaced by his best friend Kyle, who's always been cooler, more athletic, and better with girls, Tom wants Crap Kingdom back at any cost. And the hilarity that ensues will determine the fate of the universe."

Product Description:

THE CHOSEN ONE MUST BE RETRIEVED FROM EARTH HE WILL BRING DOWN THE WALL AND RESTORE THE KINGDOM....

Review:

"Pierson delivers a cutting sendup of a traditional portal fantasy."
Publishers Weekly
"Twice as trippy and equally as much fun as his first (The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To," "2010, for adults), Pierson's sophomore effort is a post-Potter, self-aware, ironic, sarcastic fantasy."
Kirkus Reviews
A hilarious and surreally honest book. Crap Kingdom is anything but the first half of its title.
Donald Glover
Pierson s funny, giddy anti-epic is the summer blockbuster your burnout friend never got around to writing.
Patton Oswalt, comedian
It s not just an incredible fantasy book. It s also so evocative of high school angst and joy. It really makes me wish I were a fifteen year old boy again.
Megan Amram, staff writer, Parks & Recreation
Like the hero of a fantasy novel, DC Pierson was merely an insanely gifted comic like everyone else, until he wakened to his secret destiny: to write brilliant and hilarious novels (oh, and also to lead the were-centaurs in final battle against the Ageless Narwhaldactyl, but you read about that in the news).
John Hodgman, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart correspondent and author of That Is All
DC Pierson s fantastic, fantastical, and most of all funny Crap Kingdom fits perfectly between Douglas Adams and the Harry Potter novels. And not just because of the alphabet.
Matt Fraction, writer, Marvel s The Mighty Thor and Invincible Iron Man comics
To balance a world as fantastical as that of "Crap Kingdom" with profoundly relatable moments of pure honesty is no easy task, and DC Pierson has made it appear effortless.
Chris Gethard, author, "A Bad Idea I m About To Do""
