Overview

The Amazing Adventure In Tovia is a fast-paced adventure in a strange, hidden world. For boys and girls ages 8 to 12.

Matt Martin, along with best friend Johnny and Matt's loyal dog Cheetah, wake one morning to find an odd-looking little blue man in their campsite on their favorite remote lake island. When Cheetah gives chase, the little man and Cheetah seemingly disappear by running straight into the face of a rock cliff! The blue man reemerges, telling things too strange to believe. Only one thing seems clear—Cheetah is inside the cliff somehow, and will not be returned until the boys join the little man and the "Tovian Volunteer Army" on a dangerous mission into a mysterious hidden world. The boys, along with Matt's sister Terry and their mother's annoying dog Frankenstein, embark on a fantastic crusade through an alien world populated with bizarre creatures. Along their unreal journey through Tovia, they discover that everything the little blue man had told them was unfortunately true. Worse yet, they learn the many disturbing facts that he had not mentioned! With the unlikely assortment of Tovian creatures at their side, can the boys find a way to defeat the evil force that awaits them? If not, they will never see home again, because earth will be destroyed completely!

    Strange and cool!

    This was an awesome book and I loved it! I loved all the characters, especially the ones from the other world! I didn't want to stop reading it, because I wanted to see how the story went. I'd read it if I were you. It's very strange and very very fun.

    I loved it as much as my son did!

    I read this book to my son when he was 8 years old. We'd go through more than one chapter per night, because the ending of each chapter left us craving information from the next. We enjoyed many laughs together because of the author's bizarre imagination and unmatched sense of humor. We BOTH highly recommend this book!

    My grandkids loved it!

    This book speaks to what children love ... adventures they wish they could have. The author must have written this for my grandchildren, for they didn't want to stop reading. Maybe they could imagine themselves as the main characters: ordinary kids who were confronted by weird beings and strange happenings, in a land unlike anything on our earth, facing adult-sized problems with kid-inspired ingenuity. As a grandparent, I appreciated the good values displayed and learned, like building a better sibling relationship and trust in friends. The grandkids ... they delighted in vicariously living a rousing adventure! Their friends liked it, too.
