<i>The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able</i> is a fantasy novel--with a twist. You see, Peter is a Boy Wizard. But wait! Before you move on to the next story, or decide now might be a good time to throw in the towel on this whole "reading" thing, let me clarify. Peter is an adult Boy Wizard who lives in the land of Fiction. His Real World author has abruptly concluded his series, and Peter is suddenly free to explore his world, liberated from the almighty Plotline. Of course the transition into free will isn't exactly an easy one, and there are plenty of Twists and Turns to keep our Protagonist guessing along the way. After all, this is Fiction.<br /><br />In the vein of authors like Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett, this book will delight fans, not just of fantasy, but of literature in general. There are plenty of familiar faces from Fiction appearing throughout, as well as many new ones, like Peter, the charming Randy, and a ficus tree named Bob--who, let's be honest, doesn't really have a face.<br /><br />This book is the first in a trilogy. Book two - coming soon!

<b>The hysterical #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller from Newbery honoree Carl Hiaasen featuring gators, snakes, bats that bite, and reality show hosts gone wild!</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> When Wahoo Cray’s dad—a professional animal wrangler—takes a job with a reality TV show called <i>Expedition Survival!,</i> Wahoo figures he'll have to do a bit of wrangling himself to keep his father from killing Derek Badger, the show's inept and egotistical star. But the job keeps getting more complicated: Derek Badger insists on using wild animals for his stunts; and Wahoo's acquired a shadow named Tuna—a girl who's sporting a shiner courtesy of <i>her</i> father and needs a place to hide out. <br /><br /> They've only been on location in the Everglades for a day before Derek gets bitten by a bat and goes missing in a storm. Search parties head out and promptly get lost themselves. And then Tuna's dad shows up with a gun . . .<br /><br /> It's anyone's guess who will <i>actually</i> survive <i>Expedition Survival</i>. . . <br />  <br /><br /> “Only in Florida—and in the fiction of its native son Carl Hiaasen—does a dead iguana fall from a palm tree and kill somebody.” —<i>New York Post</i><br />  <br /> “<i>Chomp </i>is a delightful laugh-out-loud sendup of the surreality of TV that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages.” —<i>Los Angeles Times</i><br />  <br /> “<i>Chomp </i>shines in its humorous, subtle tweaks on pop culture. . . . The real satisfaction, however, is not so much in the book’s humor but in its truth.” —<i>Time Out Chicago Kids</i><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
