(From the publisher):
The Worm is waking...
After centuries of undisturbed slumber, the Stoor Worm — the World Eater — is waking. A creature of monstrous proportions and unimaginable evil, the Worm must be destroyed. Already its murderous hatchlings are spreading terror and destruction. And a strange trio — Mad Sweeney the Fool, Alexia the Maiden, and the Obby Oss, a two-legged, talking horse — is trying to convince one ordinary boy that he alone can save the world.
