Escape from Dorkville

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

In ESCAPE FROM DORKVILLE, intergalactic plumber Cardamon Webb returns to enlist the help of Wilkin Delgado and Alice Jane Zelinski to save the universe. (Again.) Apparently, all the fresh water is drying up and needs to be turned back on. So Wilkin and Alice Jane – and a few others – journey to the Other side of the universe, visit the abandoned metropolis of Pago City, discuss expensive handbags, mindfully follow the path of the plumber's pilgrimage, decipher the text of an ancient prophecy, repel ferocious attacks by Wibgees and Leeblexes, and try to meet the All and Everything. In other words, it's complicated. (Book 2 of The Warrensberg Trilogy)

Assessment:

Ammerman’s engaging and hilarious narrative of intergalactic plumber Cardamon Webb and his two sidekicks on a journey to save the universe is cleverly unpredictable in a way that will have both parents and kids eagerly reading more. An exceptionally strong voice deftly imbues every page with tension and humor. Despite the insanity of the plot, the book succeeds brilliantly on a Douglas Adams scale.

Reviews
IndieReader

"ESCAPE FROM DORKVILLE is an absurdist delight, full of oddball characters and surreal situations. Ammerman's snarky sense of humor, and a vigorous plot driven by one bizarre event after another, keep the book lively and amusing from beginning to end."

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The familiar trope of heroes on a quest gets an enjoyable makeover with endearing Wilkin and spunky Alice Jane, who, along with their sidekicks, make for a lovable pair. As they narrate the adventure in alternating chapters, their distinctive personalities make for memorable storytelling."
