Summary (From the publisher):

Rumo is a little Wolperting who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way across Overworld and Netherworld, two very different worlds chock-full of adventures, dangers, and unforgettable characters: Rala, the beautiful girl Wolperting who cultivates a hazardous relationship with death; General Ticktock, the evil commander of the Copper Killers; Urs of the Snows, who thinks more of cooking than of fighting; Gornab the Ninety-Ninth, the demented king of Netherworld; Ushan DeLucca, the finest and most weather-sensitive swordsman in Zamonia; Volzotan Smyke, the corpulent Shark Grub, who knows all about Demonocles' tongues; Rolv of the Forest, a Wolperting who can pass through the White Fire; Professor Ostafan Kolibri, who goes in search of the Non-Existent Teenies; Friftar, the scheming director of the Theatre of Death; Skullop the Scyther, leader of the Dead Yetis; Yggdra Syl, the guardian of Nurn Forest, and his talkative animals; Professor Abdullah Nightingale, inventor of the Chest-of-Drawers Oracle; and, worse luck, the deadly Metal Maiden.
