I wanted to start off by saying, I enjoyed this book! The humor filled story moves along at an enjoyable pace, and contains many not so average characters. There are unexpected twists in the this young adult fantasy story.
Mr. Peterson may not be a big Monty Python fan, but that's what many of his location names reminded me of - Anklejelly Manor, the Fearsome toothy Cows of Skree, and Peet the Sock Man.
Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby live with their mother and their grandfather - a peg-legged retired pirate who is till full of spunk.
Life in their cottage on the cliffs above the Dark Sea of Darkness would be idyllic if not for the amphibian looking Fangs of Dang who hate all humans, and their pets. The children encounter run in after run in with the Fangs, who hate all humans and their pets. Ruthless overseers of the land, the Fangs love to punish and insult humans at every opportunity. After half-spoken answers and unanswered questions, Janner and Tink decide to scout for answers on their own and end up in the most dangerous place in town; the Fang Fortress.
