Publisher's Summary

Here's a new fantasy adventure series that has young readers dreaming for more! Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps (a.k.a. "Lev") is no ordinary boy, but that's exactly what Sabine and his dark shadows want him to believe. They know the fate of the world and the dreams of all mankind can be saved by one boy with a powerful gift, one he has yet to understand or control. Enter Clover, a funny foot-high sidekick; Winter, a girl who can freeze things; and Geth, the rightful heir to the dream world of Foo. Three transplants with only one mission: to retrieve Leven and save Foo.
Can this unique band of travelers help Lev overcome his doubt and convince him to do what only he can do? Will Leven find the Gateway in time? Will fate make the difference?
This is the first book of Leven Thumps and his extraordinary journey to a magical place that can no longer be hidden. Welcome to Foo.

A Good Listen for Younger Audiences

Despite the fact that the characters in this book are 14, the book was obviously written for the preteen or tween set. The book has a certain number of the "young audience" fantasy archetypes: the kid stuck in cruel circumstances, the wise mage to lead him on his quest, the evil enemy bent on controlling the world -- and thus, quite accidentally, destroying it. But the nature of Foo -- the land where all human dreams come from, makes this a little bit different.

I will not tell you it's great, because it is not! But younger audiences should appreciate and enjoy it.

Great for young teens

An exciting book for ages 10-14. Did a good job maintaining the energy in the book Great for long drives.
