The The Curious Misadventures of Feltus Ovalton

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Jo Treggiari

(ages 9 - 12)  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. With a loud "Wex Lethoo Radok!" his gibberish-speaking, odd-smelling, toad-keeping, mashed-potato-and-tin-foil-hat-wearing Great-Aunt Eunida appears … and everything changes. As parallel worlds start to collide with very 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.
