A boy discovers he's heir to an ancient legacy in this riotously funny, epic adventure--perfect for fans of Rick Riordan
Greg Belmont is pretty content with being ordinary. He's got exactly one friend at his swanky Chicago prep school, and one pretty cool dad (even if he's obsessed with obscure health foods and organic soaps). The problem is, Greg isn't ordinary. The day he drinks an ill-fated cup of tea, he suddenly finds himself with some bizarre new abilities and learns the truth: he's one of the dwarves, an ancient people with a legendary, powerful heritage. The magic that the dwarves once wielded is coming back to life--and with it a whole host of dangers. Greg's dad is kidnapped by a murderous troll, and Greg is suddenly flung into training with the others kids of the dwarves' Underground.
Fun as it is to learn magic and dwarf lore, Greg also misses his best friend. Edwin is one of the elves, and therefore NOT to be trusted (or so Greg is told), but Edwin seems to be the only one interested in helping Greg track down his dad. Can their friendship survive thousands of years of bad blood?
A boy discovers his destiny could totally stink in this riotously funny fantasy-adventure
Risk-averse Greg Belmont is content with being ordinary. He's got a friend--that's right, just one--at his fancy prep school, and a pretty cool dad (even if he is obsessed with organic soaps that smell like a mix of salted pork and Icelandic bog). The problem is, Greg isn't ordinary . . . he's actually an honest-to-goodness, fantastical Dwarf
He discovers the truth the day his dad brings home a gross new tea--one that awakens bizarre abilities in Greg. Then a murderous Bro-Troll kidnaps his dad and Greg is whisked away to the Underground, where Dwarves have lived for centuries right beneath the subways of Chicago.
With the help of some awesome new friends and a talking ax, Greg learns all about the history of the Dwarves, which has been marked with tales of epic failure since the dawn of time. However, the return of the magic they once wielded means big changes are afoot, escalating tensions with the Dwarves' sworn enemy: the Elves.
Brimming with humor and action, Chris Rylander's The Legend of Greg turns dwarf lore on its head, delivering an adventure readers won't be able to resist.
