The Incredible Saurian Adventure: A Small World War Novel

Tucker Duncan’s life in a small world is full of big problems. As if being shrunk by the Odax isn’t bad enough, Tucker fears Skitter meat may be his only food source in this new tiny form – and that stinks more than anchovies on a pizza, only there’s no pizza. To make things even worse, Lord Mortem returns, forcing Tucker to leave his home with the crew of the insect-disguised airship Viridis. But worst of all is the trouble Tucker brought upon himself. After betraying his new friend Lux, Tucker must find a way to regain her trust – even if that means risking his life.

The epic battle that started with a sting in The Incredible Shrinking Boy continues in The Incredible Saurian Adventure.


Double Bogey Goes Way, Way Off Course: One Grumpy Golf Ball's Mis-hit-adventures

Double Bogey is small. He’s round. He’s dimpled. He’s a golf ball with an attitude. Double Bogey is always teed off because he’s never made par for the course. And his pro-golf game doesn’t improve when another mishit lands him in the middle of Puttunia’s Mini-Golf Park. Luckily, Penelope Pencil and the Colorful Crew of mini-golf balls know just what do — Double Bogey will have to putt his way through the park to get back to greener fairways. But this grumpy golf ball would rather be lost in the rough than play a round of mini-golf.
