Overview

Elliot, King of the Brownies, isn't usually a stubborn kid, but he didn't see a lot of room to bargain on the issue of Goblins eating his subjects. Which is how he wound up alone in the Underworld, with no map either home or ahead to Demon Territory. Between trying to steal a hair for the Pixie Princess and a sock for the Fairies from a demon, being King of the Brownies is no easy job!

Praise for Elliot and the Goblin Wars:

"A perfect mix of goblin antics, a likeable hero, and droll humor! Even the most reluctant of readers will be pulled in." -R.L. LaFevers, author of Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus

"Nielsen ably draws readers into a tale chock-full of light adventure and humor... It's sure to evoke more giggles than gasps." -Kirkus

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

This second book in the Underworld Chronicles picks up where Elliot and the Goblin War (2010) left off.

As the melodramatic narrator might say, woe unto those who have not read the first title in the series, because they will often encounter characters or story references that they know little to nothing about. Elliot, King of the Brownies, struggles to balance working with hypercompetitive science-project partner Cami and hosting former nemesis Tubs Lawless, "his least favorite former bully" for a sleepover. All goes awry from the beginning, as Elliot is threatened by bumbling Harold the Shapeshifter and "totally" television-obsessed Pixie Fidget Spitfly to release Grissel the Goblin from Brownie jail. Nielsen cleverly keeps the action and humor flowing from one silly obstacle to the next as Elliot tries to meet the demands of the angry Pixies. This quickly addictive page-turner also entices readers with many sensory details, such as tenacious Gripping Mud, surprisingly tasty turnip juice and a tingly invisibility potion gone wrong. Along the journey to broker peace among the Pixies, Fairies and Brownies of the underworld, Elliot learns how to navigate some difficult relationships and appreciate the better qualities in unlikely allies.

Definitely a series to invest in for those who prefer their fantasy a bit light. (Fantasy. 9-12)
