"Hilarious, fun, and wonderfully insane! It's more than just a book--it's
a book you can play!"
     
- Kristen Schaal of Gravity FallsBob's BurgersThe MuppetsCaptain
Underpants and Toy Story 3 & 4
   
Wildly funny and inventive, this interactive book pulls you, the reader,
into the action. Yes, YOU!
    
You wake up in the fictional land of Astorya, where stories from our world
come to life. You're a real human being (we assume), and in this fictional
world, that makes you a superhero. Armed with your trusty pencil, you have
the power to create: what you write, draw, or scribble in the book becomes
part of the story!
    
Only you can rescue Prince S. from the evil Queen Rulette. Aided by the
Couriers--a French stoat with dangerous dance moves, a giant dung beetle, a
fire ninja, a Pegasus-centaur-cowgirl and a super-intelligent femalien
chameleon--you must write, draw, and puzzle your way through a hilarious
adventure and prove that the pencil is mightier than the sword.
