Are you ready to open a can of worms on a brave new world?
This week sees the release of TESTAMENT: FUNNY BADGERS by Indigo Roth.
Described by the author as "a romping sci-fi fairy tale for grown-ups of all ages, but without all that pesky sex, drugs and bad language", Roth hopes that his first book will find a broad audience.
"It's not a children's book," he said in a recent interview, "but there's nothing in it that's unsuitable for any age group. Better yet, it's a lot of fun."
When Indigo Roth moves into the old house in Cambridge, he has no idea that there's a clan of badgers living at the bottom of the garden.
Or that they're Engineers.
This turns out to be the thin end of the spatula.
The half-eaten zebra on the landing is a bad sign, but what else is the lion renting the spare room supposed to eat for breakfast?
Over the months to come, aided by his loony best friend, a seven-foot black bear, the girl next door, a caffeinated midget, a dimension-hopping elephant and a multitude of badgers, Roth must make sense of it all.
There's rhinos, redheads, the police, penguins, several large sharks, the armadillo mafia, Robert Oppenheimer, JFK, an elusive curry house, and Richard Nixon.
And Death. But just the once.
Can Roth overcome the odds, elude a lethal squid/squirrel hybrid, and even take down the sentient cuttlefish network that threatens the divine flow of pizza?
