About the Book

Debut author Jennifer Nielsen serves up goblins like you've never seen (or smelled) before

As of today, there are only seven children who have ever read this book and lived to tell about it. Ninety five children successfully read the first chapter, but upon beginning Chapter Two, they started blabbering in some language known only as "flibberish," which makes it very hard to tell their parents why they can't finish their homework. The only thing known for sure about those who read the final chapters of this book is that something in Chapter Fifteen seems to make body parts fall off. Read it now, if you dare. But don't say you haven't been warned, for this is the story that unfolds the mysteries of the Underworld.

Warning! As of today, there are only seven children who have ever read this book and lived to tell about it. Ninety-five children successfully read the first chapter, but upon beginning chapter 2, they started blabbering in some language known only as "Flibberish," which makes it very hard to tell their parents why they can''t finish their homework. Thirty-eight children made it halfway through this wretched book before their brains simply shut down and they began sucking their thumbs through their noses. But these are minor problems compared to what happened to those who read the final chapters of this book. The only thing known for sure is that something in chapter 15 seems to make body parts fall off. If you''re very brave, one of those who would battle a dragon with only a toothpick for a sword, perhaps you are willing to take your chances and turn the page. But before you read even one more sentence, be sure that you have told your family who gets your favorite toys if you do not survive this book. Read it now, if you dare. But don''t say you haven''t been warned, for this is the story that unfolds the mysteries of the Underworld. Turn the page and begin Elliot and the Goblin War. Chapter One: Where Elliot Gets a Little Scared When he was eight years old, Elliot Penster started an interspecies war. Don''t blame him. As anyone who has ever started an interspecies war will tell you, it''s not that difficult to do. Elliot had spent the evening trick-or-treating. Everyone th
