The setting and the characters are brilliantly imagined in this debut novel by an exciting new talent. A secret gateway to an exciting new world of Foo changes Leven forever, whose life until then had been wretched. But the new world is in crisis and it seems only he can save it from being destroyed. But can his enchanting and special Foo dwellers he meets persuade him before it’s too late? A magical adventure just waiting to be unwrapped.


Leven Thumps And The Gateway To Foo by Obert Skye

Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps (aka "Lev") lives an empty life in small town Oklahoma...until he learns about a secret gateway bridging the real world and the world of Foo. Foo was created at the beginning of time, in the folds of the mind, and makes it possible for mankind to dream and hope, aspire and imagine. The bad news is that Foo is in chaos, and Lev alone has the power to save it. Enter Clover, a wise-cracking, foot-high sidekick; Winter, a girl who can freeze things; and Geth, the rightful heir to Foo. Their mission is to convince Lev that he has the power to save this magical realm. Will he find the gateway in time? Or will the sinister Sabine and his dark shadows get there first, and destroy mankind? This is the first book about Leven Thumps and his extraordinary journey.
