Synopses & Reviews
Fractured fairy tales meet modern day middle school in book two of this funny series for fans of Shrek and Timmy Failure.
Even after rescuing the king from deadly Snuffweasels, Zarf is scum on the bottom rung of the middle school social ladder. After all, he is still a troll. But when his best friend Kevin Littlepig is kidnapped as part of a dastardly plot to avenge the Big Bad Wolf . . . well, thats a new low even for Zarf. A wolfish rebellion is brewing, and Little Red Ridinghoods daughter (who just so happens to be Zarf's crush) is their next target . . . unless Zarf can get that troll brain of his to crank out a solution.
Award-winning comic creator Rob Harrell has middle-grade humor mastered. This second book in his Life of Zarf series is packed with even more witty one-liners and clever twists on classic folk and fairytales.

“Entertainingly goofy. A promising series kickoff full of off-kilter action and humor.” —Publishers Weekly
"A Wimpy Kid format with a fairy-tale twist? Yes, this is bound to be a hit... This is a witty twist on ordinary school-day troubles, and Harrells turning of familiar fairy-tale tropes on their heads adds to the charm (and a lot to the amusement factor)...this ought to find a sweet spot at the nexus betweenfans of humor and fans of fractured fantasies."—Booklist
