Norman has woken up in a world that seems a lot like his own, but with some notable differences. Cats can talk, for example. His sister owns a horse, and, most shockingly, his father has gone. No one but Norman seems surprised by these developments. He's almost lulled into believing that it's all real until Malcolm, his best friend (who happens to be a stoat), arrives. Malcolm has some dark clues that persuade Norman that he must once and for all discover the secrets about Bookweird in order to save the day and his family.
Praise for Bookweird:
"Brilliant . . . . The book's oddities, its strange sense of play, also
come with an emphasis on heroism and a dash of paradox. What a delicious
concept Bookweird is, and what a fantastic writer we have in Paul Glennon."
—The Globe and Mail
"Boys have trouble finding anything they care about between the covers of a book. Ottawa author Paul Glennon has a solution. Give 'em books filled with boy appeal--blood, guts and glory. . . . Glennon does a fine job in keeping the story moving, and he's terrific at family dynamics."
