Madness shows up when you’re born, when you die, and, in Marvin Snicks’s case, everywhere in between. Haunted by an incessant croaking coming from the woods around his home, Marvin finds himself being pulled deeper and deeper into the jaws of insanity, as if by a gigantic, sticky tongue. The heinous croaking erodes his sanity day after day, driving him to an obsession that affects every facet of his life. Even the company therapist, with her five-year junior college degree, seems to be pushing Marvin deeper and deeper into the inescapable mire of feverish delusion. In the end, it’s man against beast in a twisted, final showdown.
When Tony, a garbage man, hears a woman’s cry for help in the trash bin that’s about to be dumped in the back of his garbage truck, he comes to the rescue. Out from the trash emerges Bagoo, his fantasy woman. Is she a bag lady, homeless, on the run? Bagoo becomes obsessed with helping Tony overcome his writer’s block so he can finally be the writer he has always dreamed he could be. Tony’s life is reduced to shambles as Bagoo continues to push him further and further out of his comfort zone. Against his better judgment, Tony yields to one of Bagoo’s zany life experiencing ideas, which turns out dreadfully wrong. Tony swears he’s done with her for good, but in reality their life is just beginning.
“Not all things that are scary bite. Not all things that are scary will bite you. So take courage, you have teeth, too,” Fritz Fombie tells his frightened friend Fannie. In her new adventure, Fannie will have to take his words to heart.
In the vast unknown, a fantastic realm outside of our ordinary earth, King Bafoonie and Izard the Magician are plotting to take over the world. The only thing that can stop them is the mysterious Gibler, guarded by the five wily keepers of the path. When Fannie learns of Bafoonie’s evil plan, it’s up to her and her friends Fritz, Abby, Frank, Elfington, and Orville to find the Gibler and save their world. In addition to the mad king and the keepers, Fannie’s nemeses Buz and Priscilla have tagged along and are up to no good. It will take smarts and spirit to stop Bafoonie’s schemes and Buz’s and Priscilla’s mischief!
Like its predecessor, Fritz Fombie and the Frightful Feats of Courage focuses on teaching children to face their fears and discover their bravery. Readers will find the plucky Fannie an inspiration and realize that the scary things in life might not be so frightening after all.
Fannie’s a fourth grader with a problem. She’s afraid of so many things that she keeps a list of fears on her bedroom door. She’s scared of the dentist. She’s scared when her parents leave for the weekend and she has to deal with mean babysitter Buz, and she’s terrified of telling cute Frank Oliver how she feels about him. But more than anything, she’s scared of Stink Warts the Horrible.
Stink Warts is the monster who might live under Fannie’s bed. She feeds him leftovers at night in case he exists.
One horrible week, Fannie learns the school is having a sock hop. If she doesn’t talk to Frank now, nasty Priscilla Nettles will. To make matters worse, Fannie’s parents are taking a trip, which means Buz will bully her all weekend.
Scared, Fannie accidently calls upon the great powers of the universe, which send Fritz Fombie. This young zombie helps Fannie confront her worst fears—starting with his pet, a monster named Stink Warts.
A lighthearted tale of facing your fears, Fritz FomBie Have No Fear mixes suspense and humor to keep eight- to thirteen-year-olds laughing and on the edge of their seats.
