Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps (aka "Lev") lives an empty life in small town Oklahoma...until he learns about a secret gateway bridging the real world and the world of Foo. Foo was created at the beginning of time, in the folds of the mind, and makes it possible for mankind to dream and hope, aspire and imagine. The bad news is that Foo is in chaos, and Lev alone has the power to save it. Enter Clover, a wise-cracking, foot-high sidekick; Winter, a girl who can freeze things; and Geth, the rightful heir to Foo. Their mission is to convince Lev that he has the power to save this magical realm. Will he find the gateway in time? Or will the sinister Sabine and his dark shadows get there first, and destroy mankind? This is the first book about Leven Thumps and his extraordinary journey.

Review:

"Splendidly unpredictable plot twists. . . . [With] deliciously menacing monsters, equally delicious turns of phrase, and sly riffs on everything from pop music to Harry Potter, the author sends Leven Thumps and company on a long, strange trip, culminating in a literally explosive climax."-- "Kirkus Reviews," starred review
