Award-winning novelist Rodman Philbrick challenges the boundaries of time and place in this exciting fantasy. "Harry Potter fans will recognize the misfit hero in a strange, new world." - Booklist Arthur Woodbury is tired of being called fat. So he's purchased a special product that's supposed to help him lose weight. But when he puts on the helmet like the instructions say, his world vanishes before his very eyes. Now he is trapped in REM World, a place where nothing is as it seems. And it's not enough just to find his way home. By entering REM World, Arthur accidentally released a terrible creature into the real world. It's Nothing, and it's going to eat away everything in the world until all that remains is itself. Arthur's never been the heroic kind - but now it's up to him to save the world.

I have shared REM World with my 5th grade students because I found it to carry an important message about self-esteem. They loved the book for the wonderful adventures, humor and fantasy included and have listed it as a favorite time and time again

[One, Scarlet Letter IS Oliver Twist. Sorry.] <p> The biggest random Rp at 'all too human' result one. <p> Idea: Maybe make a Transformers Rp or something.

RP's to join; <br> The hugest Human RP I've ever seen, besides Naplo and Scarlet Letter, Oliver Twist at 'Oliver Twist' result one. <br> No sure is these two are still active but, Two Hishscool/Human RP's at 'Dark School' and 'Night'. Last time I check, the one at 'Night' was growing crazily. <br> There's a Demi-God/Human RP at 'Pons' result two. Pretty active.

This book actually wasn't too bad! I read it at IAC (Interlochen Arts Camp) every night before I went to bed, but it only took me about three nights to read. It was actually pretty interesting. The main character was a pretty big fatso...heh heh...but if you happen to find this book in a library and you can't find anything else to read, go on and pick it's a nice book.

As said as above. Aruther Woodbury is tired of being teased for being fat so he purcases a miracle device that can help him loose weight when asleep. However, he fails to read the more detailed rules and therefore, ends in a magical place called Rem. Aruther must learn to fly, meet guidance, and be brave with his partner Morf in order to save the universe from the Nothing that he has released. I enjoyed this book, finding it quite entertaining and funny. I found myself laughing and thinking and smiling at its plot and details and the characters. I hope you enjoy it too.
