Persimmony Smudge, a plucky young girl, head-strong though she is, leads her friends, Worvil the worrier, and Guafnoggle, the Rumblebump on an adventure to warn the inhabitants of Mount Majestic (especially clueless King Lucas, the Lofty) that their mountain isn't really a mountain at all, but a giant sleeping peacefully, who must not, under any circumstances, be woken. Waking the giant would surely mean the end of their peaceful little island and all that they know and love. Persimmony, upon hearing the Leafeaters talk of this hidden secret, knows what she must do, and she sets out to do it. She must warn the king!

The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic is full of mumble, jumble mixed-up words, punctuation, and ideas, an array of delightfully odd, yet endearing characters, and an adventure to make all of us sit up and take notice.
