Roger is just an ordinary boy, in an ordinary world - or so he thinks, until a grumpy dwarf warrior, Mossbelly MacFearsome, appears out of thin air and saves him from the school bully. If that isn't incredible enough, now Moss has decided that Roger is the perfect human companion for his daring quest to defeat the dwarves' arch-enemy Leatherhead Barnstorm and his horrifying horde of monstrous (but very polite) gorefiends. If Roger doesn't help Moss, the world as we know it will be destroyed by ogres and dragons and the race of humans will be annihilated. If he does help, he will be late for his tea and his mum will be going mad with worry. A Highland castle, a trainee witch who knows karate, and an ancient spell to be broken - by King Golmar's braces, just what has Roger got himself into? A hilarious action-packed fish-out-of-water adventure, perfect for young fans of Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and Cressida Cowell.

"Fans of classic old-world builders like Tolkien will appreciate the gentle satirisation of tropes, while readers fresh to fantasy will be drawn by the rollicking rambunctious plot and realistic characters" -- Sara Keating * Irish Times * "Fast-paced action, zany characters, oodles of humour and a touch of Discworld in an energetic fantasy debut." -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * "More fun than a dwarven frog-spitting contest! Fast-paced, smart, and very, very amusing. Alex Gardiner mixes myth with modernity and makes a unique world. By the power of the Doomstone Sword, I command you read it!" -- Sam Gayton "An ogre-sized helping of fun and adventure, this is one to push into the hands of fans of Danny Wallace, Shane Hegarty and Will Mabbit." -- Andrea Reece * LoveReading4Kids * "...this hilarious fantasy adventure will delight and entertain young readers from start to finish." * The Book Trust * "... Mossbelly MacFearsome and the Dwarves of Doom stands out in its originality. Featuring memorable characters, a fast-paced storyline and witty narrative, this book is hard to put down." * NYALitFest Newsletter * "Fast paced, brimming with action, a must read!" * Armadillo Magazine * "A brilliant funny story for anyone looking for an adventure!" * My Shelves are Full Blog *
