About the Creator

When he’s not flustering emus or stymying mambas, Scott McCormick enjoys annoying his children until they tell their mother. He also writes. He writes all kinds of stuff. Some of it is good. He wrote the Mr. Pants series of graphic novels. Those were good. You should totally check them out. So are the books he writes for Audible, including Rivals! Frenemies Who Changed the World, and its sequel, Rivals 2. He’s got a hilarious book about pirates coming out soon, and he’s also excited about his first novel, The Dragon Squisher, which is just as funny and squishy as it sounds. Scott lives on the western edge of the easternmost part of southern North Carolina, right smack in the middle of it all.

Hilarious!

Oh, wow. This is a wild ride! It's part homage, part take-down of the classic quest fantasy. If you want some laughs, some Gorks, some military school, and a boat-load of irreverence, this one's for you. For kids, sure, but will definitely appeal to adults with a good sense of humor!

Not fun, not a kid's book

got this to listen because I wanted something fun and easy to listen to while I walked. this was marketed as a children's story, so I thought it would be funny. It's not. actually, the scenes with the main protagonist in boot camp was actually rather traumatizing. I just couldn't go on. have no idea why people think this is a fun book.

LOL, indeed

Narrator was fantastic. Felt like a little kid when he did all the voices :) Silly story that's easy to get into. LOTR references were hilarious. Author's sense of the absurd is great. Give it a try!

Hilarious

This audiobook was at times laughter at loud funny. The narrator did an amazing job. To the reviewer who said the “boot camp” scenes were traumatizing, I feel sorry for you. Altogether the book was funny and a good way to spend 8 hrs.

Mental Squisher: Monty Python and LOTR (sanse adderal)

I’m not a fan of the neurotic ADHD type of novels and normally would have given this one a much lower score but it had several redeeming qualities. First off it is a really good parody of an epic trilogy that deserves a little fun being poked at it. Second, while the narrator really struggled with different voices for the characters, I think the dry British style was a great choice the type of comedy this story followed. Finally, the way things are wrapped up at the end so nice and neat, you might just miss the fact that it’s wide open for a second book.

A Childish Triumph

Perfect, with the comedic spirit of a 14-year-old and clever maturity of a well-worded author.

A great romp

This was a thoroughly enjoyable book to listen to. A fun,quirky story with twists and turns and the right amount of goofiness, irreverence and connection. Adam Fuller’s performance was a real highlight, as was the fun poked at Lord of the Rings.

Great spoof take on Lord of the rings + more

Well worth a listen- especially in 2020 - nice to have something to smile about. I dear you to not laugh out loud when the evil villain describes what is the first thing he will do after taking over the world. Enjoy
