A book arrives by Owl, left under an old fir tree in the snow. With it, a mysterious message: Another world’s scientists have discovered the laws of the universe are found in - fairy tales. Is it true?
Snotty - the unlikely hero of this tale - is a streetwise adolescent mastermind transported to a mystical realm where the fate of the world rests on discovering who he really is. As Snotty’s perceptions of might and right are upended, the scholarly footnotes point toward a deeper truth - that in the endless fight against evil, the toughest warriors come from the most despised group of all: the smallest, the poorest, the funniest, the snottiest.
A fantastic adventure story, smart political allegory, and philosophical treatise, this is a book to be savored by adults of all ages.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
“Ms. Davies blends folklore, fairy tales, fantasy, and even oral tradition - and does so brilliantly.... Snotty Saves the Day is a book for mature or precocious teens, for fantasy and tale-within-a-tale lovers, and for thoughtful adults who seek the wonder and optimism so badly needed in today’s times.” (New York Journal of Books)
“A fun and unique tale, sure to entertain readers both young and old.” (Midwest Book Review)
“[An] amusing debut...dressed up with footnotes, scholarly introductions, and a bibliography, as well as lovely line drawings by Gary Zaboly, Snotty’s story seeks to prove that fairy tales rank with quantum mechanics in their ability to establish parallel worlds.” (Publishers Weekly)
