A quest, a war, a ring that would be grounds for calling any wedding off, a king without a kingdom, and a little, furry "hero" named Frito, ready - or maybe just forced by the wizard of Goodgulf - to undertake the one mission which can save Lower Middle Earth from enslavement by the evil... show more
A quest, a war, a ring that would be grounds for calling any wedding off, a king without a kingdom, and a little, furry "hero" named Frito, ready - or maybe just forced by the wizard of Goodgulf - to undertake the one mission which can save Lower Middle Earth from enslavement by the evil Sorhed...Luscious Elfmaidens, a roller-skating dragon, ugly plants that can soul-kiss the unwary to death - these are just some of the ingredients in the wildest, wackiest, most irreverent excursion into fantasy realms that anyone has ever dared to undertake.

I've read this countless times before, but this time I read it aloud to my partner. There are a reasonable number of parts that withstand the test of time ("Oh, the leaves are falling, the flowers are wilting, and the rivers are all going Republican"). There are others that do not, and are so far re...

This is one of the single funniest books I've ever read! I originally read it while I was a freshman in high school and it was literally the first book I'd ever read that I was belly-laughing uncontrollably while I was reading it (and mind you, belly-laughing for me, even back then, was not a safe t...
