Description

A boy discovers his destiny could totally stink in this riotously funny fantasy-adventure

Risk-averse Greg Belmont is content with being ordinary. He's got a friend--that's right, just one--at his fancy prep school, and a pretty cool dad (even if he is obsessed with organic soaps that smell like a mix of salted pork and Icelandic bog). The problem is, Greg isn't ordinary . . . he's actually an honest-to-goodness, fantastical Dwarf!

He discovers the truth the day his dad brings home a gross new tea--one that awakens bizarre abilities in Greg. Then a murderous Bro-Troll kidnaps his dad and Greg is whisked away to the Underground, where Dwarves have lived for centuries right beneath the streets of Chicago.

With the help of some awesome new friends and a talking ax, Greg learns all about the history of the Dwarves, which has been marked with tales of epic failure since the dawn of time. However, the return of the magic they once wielded means big changes are afoot, escalating tensions with the Dwarves' sworn enemy: the Elves.

Brimming with humor and action, Chris Rylander's The Legend of Greg turns dwarf lore on its head, delivering an adventure readers won't be able to resist.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 04, 2018 – In this humorous, heartfelt novel, eighth-grader Greg Belmont discovers the true reason for his family's long history of failure and bad luck: they're Dwarves, part of a secret, supernatural community that (literally) went underground ages ago. Now, like their ancient enemies, the Elves, they hide in plain sight while waiting for the long-prophesied return of magic. But just as Greg learns about his heritage and his ability to perform magical feats, his father is kidnapped, an event that heralds the start of a new conflict between Dwarves and Elves. As Greg and his Dwarf allies train for battle, he rallies them to rescue his father and avert tragedy, but his efforts may cost him his best friend. In this start to a new series, An Epic Series of Failures, Rylander conjures up an engaging world, filled with hidden magical beings and a rich history. (Famous Elves and Dwarves include Bill Gates, Picasso, both Roosevelt presidents, and Tom Brady.) The premise and entertaining narrative, with its combination of dry humor and supernatural action, should appeal to Rick Riordan fans, while the cliffhanger ending leaves the story poised to proceed in unexpected directions. Ages 8 12.
