Ever since he and his parents moved to the city, Feltus Ovalton LeRoi has been hiding out in his room, reading comics, wishing for something -- anything -- to happen to his miserable life. When, with a loud ''Wex Lethoo Radok!'' (and much to his mother's horror) his gibberish-speaking, odd-smelling, toad-keeping, mashed-potato-and-tin-foil-hat-wearing Great-Aunt Eunida appears ... and everything changes. Feltus discovers a secret entrance to another world under his dining room table, and befriends a persecuted race of noble PoodleRats, who claim he is their savior. As other parallel worlds start to collide with mixed results, Feltus finds himself shoved into the unlikely role of hero. Suddenly, parents who ignore him and bullies at school are the least of his problems! Does his peculiar great-aunt hold the answers? And could it be true that there is a tiny bit of magic in Feltus Ovalton's blood? This quirky, dexterous novel for tweens has plenty of magic, fantasy, and richly developed characters that range from the angelic to the absurd. In addition to offering hilarious and magical plot lines, the book also touches upon themes such as heroism, bullying, family dysfunction, and the importance of friendship.
