A humorous and fantastical interactive middle-grade novel that pulls you, the reader, into the action. Armed only with a pencil and notebook, you have woken up in the fantasy land of Astorya, where stories come to life and an evil queen has launched a terrible plot to erase all stories but her own.

You wake up in a strange land. You don't know who you are. You don't know where you are. All you have is a pencil, a notebook, and a vague understanding that, in this world, anything you write, draw, or scribble comes to life.

Enter Manteau, a quick-witted French stoat with dangerous dance moves and seemingly, all the answers: You are the sole human in Astorya, a land composed exclusively of written stories that is under the threat of Queen Rulette. You learn that she has kidnapped the beloved Prince S., and has come up with a devious plot to erase all stories but her own. Together with Manteau, you set off on an action-packed journey through the realms of Astorya to rescue the prince and save the land. But with dangers and pitfalls at every turn and a narcissist ruler bent on your destruction, will you survive to tell the tale? And perhaps more importantly, can you prove that the pencil is mightier than the sword?

Chock-full of puns and with tongue firmly in cheek, this book blends narrative and interactivity to produce a hilarious adventure story that is unique to every reader.
