Jeremy Bennett was expecting a quiet tranquil few days with his grandparents at their cottage in the country. What he got was anything but. Finding himself abducted by a number of delinquent dwarfs and whisked off through a time portal into another dimension he really didn't think matters could get any worse. He was wrong. Having been mistaken for a powerful wizard he is obliged to live on his wits, whilst trying to find a way of getting home again. His only hope is to speak with the resident wizard Montacute. Unfortunately he is getting passed his best and often makes mistakes whilst performing spells. To top it all the throne is in danger of being usurped, and what's more Old Smokey, the volcano overlooking the dwarf citadel is in imminent danger of exploding. Can Jeremy help find a solution to all these problems? If only he could solve the puzzle of getting the magical Oracle to work. Trouble is no-one has managed it to-date, not even Montacute. What chance does he stand?
