Tom Parking has always wanted to save a magic kingdom, so he's excited when he is approached by a strange creature and taken to a magic land. However, he is sad to find out that his magical kingdom doesn't have a name and kind of sucks. He doesn't get magic powers, the people in this new world are weird, and everything looks like it has escaped from a Goodwill (which most of it has). Tom has to decide whether he should fulfill his destiny or go back to his normal life.
I expected this book to be a whole lot funnier than it was. It seemed like the kind of book that would have been written by a group of seventh grade boys after drinking massive quantities of Red Bull. It probably seemed hilarious at the time, but it just. wasn't. funny. I wasn't impressed by the descriptions, the humor wasn't funny, and I didn't sympathize with Tom at all, so I had no reason to cheer for him throughout his adventures.
