Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps lives a wretched life in Burnt Culvert, Oklahoma. But his life is about to change and his destiny be fulfilled as he learns about a secret gateway that bridges two worlds -- the real world and Foo, a place created at the beginning of time in the folds of the mind that makes it possible for mankind to dream and hope, aspire and imagine.


But Foo is in chaos, and three transplants from that dream world have been sent to retrieve Leven. Their mission: to convince Leven Thumps that he alone has the unique power to save Foo. Can Leven even find the gateway in time? Will belief overcome doubt? Will fate make up the difference?

This unabridged production performed by E.B. Stevens, using more than two dozen character voices, is a story about courage, destiny, and the power of believing one's self. Welcome to Foo!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Excellent…palpable excitement and suspense. Kids and adults will enjoy this charming tale of good and evil.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A fizzy blend of high and low fantasy with a distinctly American sensibility…This recalls Michael Chabon’s Summerland for its mix of humor and terror, its splendidly unpredictable plot twists, and its intriguing vision of a reality that is wider than most of us suspect.” 

Listener Opinions

    " This children's book is supposed to be a fantasy. I found it unbelievable. As a school media specialist, I read it to see what the children liked about it. It was very confusing to me. Perhaps I might have liked it better if I had known about the glossary and checked it as I was reading. I had to force myself to finish it. I won't read the other books in the series. "

    " It was very difficult to get through this book. There were some creative ideas but I felt it was poorly written and painfully slow. "

    " I don't know what to say about this book. I was really looking forward to reading it because of things that other people have said, and I enjoyed the first couple of chapters. However, the further the story developed, the more ridiculous and sloppy it became. There were a couple of good elements and parts of the story, but they were never executed well enough to make up for the rest of the book. "

    " I was reminded of Tom Robbins while reading the Geth character and the crazy journey that the characters were on, and I love Tom Robbins. I know that fantasy-loving kids will like this series. "
