Publisher's Summary

“Before I can begin my tale, you need to know about the king's panties.” 

So begins the epic adventure of 14-year-old Nigel, digger of latrines, shoveler of poop, and the single greatest threat to all the humans, elves, and halflings of Esteria. 

Nigel needs to escape from military school. Who can blame him? After all, the king just declared war on the gorks, and he's pretty sure his latrine-digging skills aren't going to be much good on the front lines. 

Problem is, Nigel's escape efforts have a way of backfiring, taking him further from home, and destroying, well, pretty much everything that gets in his way. By the time he and his arch-frenemy are banished from the kingdom and sent on an impossible quest for a (probably bogus) magical artifact, the humans of Esteria find themselves longing for the good old days when they were merely being annihilated by Lord Smoron. 

Book one of the Nigel Chronicles, The Dragon Squisher tell the story of how Nigel, his too-perfect comrade Lance Hightower, and Eldrack, a female gork prisoner with a well-earned grudge against humans, usher in a new era of chaos and magic.

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.

Funny parallel universe to LotR

Although the adventure aims at a teenage readership, the story is fun for all ages, especially if you like the Lord of the Rings universe.

Lol

Lol sums it up pretty good. A story within a story using funny names, great adventure, and strong bonding with friends. I really enjoyed it.

Narration doesnt match story

Narration seems to be for primary age children slightly 'babyish' which is fine but storyline is based on two 14 year old boys and seems more appropriate for teenagers as it discussed their girlfriend/ boyfriend issues. The two basically don't match up. Would not recommend.
