Overview

Filled with a rich array of fantastic and very funny, highly original characters, Apello the Piffel offers one of the best combinations of fantasy and humor. For readers from 9 to 90, this second in the Tales of Godwin series is a masterpiece of eclectic fantasy.

In Apello the Piffel, the second of the Tales of Godwin/The Boy Magician series, the arch sorcerer Kretch sends the intergalactic mercenary, Blendin the Light Pirate, to steal the magical Orb of Luna back from Godwin and the Rainbow Builders.

But little does Blendin know that, once he does, Kretch has arranged with his henchman, Marcom the Gemgnasher to ambush Blendin and take the prize. This sets off a series of misadventures that sends Godwin to seek the fellowship of the Earth Fairy, Landolen, and to bring back to life a dying dog that he resurrects into an indestructible, hairy rock - A Piffel! - who he names "Apello."

Together, the Boy Magician and Apello the Piffel go out on a mission deep into the mines of Soria, where they must rescue the Plories (the Petal People) from the clutches of Marcom and his altogether stupid, incompetent armies of trolls.

What comes about is one of the most enjoyable, original and humorous tales written in the annals of modern youth fantasy.

Better than Harry Potter? A lot of Godwin readers think so.

    Entertaining and Refreshing Fantasy Marvel

    Another excellent read as part of the new Godwin/the Boy Magician continuing fantasy saga with its second book, ¿Apello the Piffel.¿ Imagine a dog with an instinct for sniffing out magic. Once a beautiful dog killed by trolls, only to be reconstructed out of earth and lightning by Godwin and Landolin/the Earth Fairy, he emerges as a furry rockling and becomes Godwin¿s lifelong friend and protector. This is a boisterously entertaining and refreshing fantasy marvel for anyone with an appetite for going beyond Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.

    One of the most fun fantasies Ever!

    Apello the Piffel is one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read period. Even though it's written for young readers, I think it's a masterpiece for readers of any age. It's braod in scope, imagination, and has an outrageous sense of humor. And what I like about it - and the whole GODWIN/ The Boy Magician series - is that it comes from an angelic consciousness. A lot of fantasies come from witchcraft and sorcery as a part of their core. This is a classic good over evil tale. And the series is terrific. I can't wait for book three to come out!
