Beverly B, April 30, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
A quirky parody of fantasy novels, Crap Kingdom is laugh out loud funny. The characters are strange, likeable, and entertaining, and their witty dialogue drives most of the action. When he is kidnapped and told by his kidnapper that he is the Chosen One for an alternate world, Tom is ecstatic. He envisions having magical powers, admiring minions, a beautiful young woman assisting him, and lots of luxurious rewards. Upon arrival, Tom discovers "his" kingdom is a community of weirdos living in mountains of garbage with a ruler who is grouchy and bossy. When he is told his chosen job is to collect snot at the rat snottery, Tom decides he will forego his destiny and return to his boring life. Later Tom learns his replacement Chosen One is his best friend, who is granted all of the cool privileges Tom wanted but didn't get. Tom decides to return to Crap Kingdom and win over the king and people. Of course, that decision is a huge mistake with humorous consequences.

I am beyond glad that D. C. Pierson wrote another novel. I need something good to read. Why is it not March yet?!?

"Review" by , "[T]eens will just enjoy the ride."
"Review" by , “A hilarious and surreally honest book. Crap Kingdom is anything but the first half of its title.”
"Review" by , “Pierson’s funny, giddy anti-epic is the summer blockbuster your burnout friend never got around to writing.”
"Review" by , “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.”
"Review" by , “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).”
"Review" by , “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.”
"Review" by , “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.”
