Muddle Earth

by Paul Stewart, Chris Riddell
Release date: 2003
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

Muddle Earth contains three small novels that are not available separately. The novels are:

  • Engelbert the Enormous
  • Here Be Dragons
  • Dr. Cuddles of Giggle Glade

Joe Jefferson is an ordinary schoolboy from ordinary Earth. At least, he was. But something strange happened when he was walking his dog, and now he's Joe the Barbarian – fearless warrior-hero, summoned by Muddle Earth's leading wizard* to slay ogres, wrestle dragons, and bravely confront villains.

Joe doesn't feel much like a warrior-hero.** But evil is stirring in the heart of Elfwood, and the people of Muddle Earth need help (although most of them don't know it yet). Perhaps Joe Jefferson really is a hero after all...

* Actually, Muddle Earth's only wizard. And he's not very good.
** He doesn't really look much like one either.
