Everything seems to be normal in Angelica's life, until one morning all of the adults seem to be acting weird. Angelica's mother doesn't hound her to get up, and at school the students don't have to go to class but instead get to play around based on their interests.

When the principal takes them on an unexpected field trip, Angelica discovers that they've all been kidnapped by the mean and nasty Goblin King, who wants to control and enslave everyone.

Forced to work on the maintenance crew for the king, Angelica gets word that her food-loving friend, Stewie, and other children are going to be baked into a giant pie. With the help of Plopbottle, a misfit goblin she meets who is not evil or nasty like the rest, Angelica must find a way to rescue her friend, stop the Goblin King, and save mankind.

Will she succeed or be enslaved underground forever?

A great fantasy and adventure that reads fast. The characters are memorable and entertaining, and the plot is well-done. The story is fun to read and unique. Readers who like fantasy, adventure, underground worlds, and saving-the-world stories will enjoy reading UNDERKINGDOM: DISCO GOBLINS VS THE MACHINE.
