Iggy is an Urk. The Urks are a warlike race with bushy beards and hairy legs – especially some of the women. Urks like boulder-rolling and chasing lizards. They also like the Feast of Urks. This is when Urk boys must pass the Testing to become warriors.

But Iggy isn’t quite like other Urks. He likes inventing things. Which is why he has been neglecting his axe-wielding practice. So it is unfortunate for him that the Testing involves killing a large snake – using an axe.
And that’s how this story begins. With a very large snake, an axe, and hopefully a very cunning (last-minute) invention....
