Buckle up for a fun ride. Adam Rex always delivers on the humor, especially if you favor the slightly ridiculous, and you never know what wacky directions his stories will take - this is half the fun. His illustrations always add extra fun, and a few inside jokes will please fans - I loved the mention of Super Abraham Lincoln comics (can someone actually make those, please?) The only flaw in the whole brilliantly crazy thing is that the plot falls apart a bit towards the end (to tell the truth, I can't remember how he managed to wrap things up). However, the humor wins out in the end. Recommended to fans of absurd fantasy.

Review for Metro Parent:

This comic fantasy sends the reader deep into the corrupt world of a breakfast cereal company bent on world domination. When Scott starts seeing leprechauns, pookas and unicats, he soon discovers he isn’t hallucinating – and with the help of a strange set of twins, he sets off on a madcap adventure to save the world.

“The Freemen have 987 levels of membership, the first three of which are achieved merely by filling out an application. The 8th level is granted upon full acceptance into the local lodge, the 13th following Initiation, the 21st at the end of the Initiate's second week, and the 89th the first time he brings snacks.”
