About the Book
Two Gnomes -Grimbledung and Drimblerod- are just trying to get along in life when their worlds collide. Drimblerod runs a moderately reputable second-hand wand shop that does pretty well at moving inventory. Grimbledung runs a disreputable second-hand wand wagon that he moves regularly to avoid the authorities.
Drimblerod thinks he has found the perfect partner- someone he can trust (he’s a fellow Gnome, after all) and one that will keep away pesky non-buying window shoppers. Little does he realize that his new-found partner suffers from Pixie Madness! Thanks to a ricochet to the head in the Great Pixie Uprising, Grimbledung experiences episodes of instability and uncontrolled fits of Pixie-anger!
As Grimbledung gets used to his new life of respectable shop ownership, the pair end up befriending Nulu Bentknees the Trolless across the street, Pozzuoli Consigliore the Dwarf next door, and even the town constable- Akita Finnish (a Werewolf who would rather bask in the sun than do anything else). Along with Big Julie the headmistress of the school of magic down the road, this diverse group learns to deal with Grimbledung’s antics as they try to refocus his outlandish get rich schemes and unpredictable outbursts into something more productive. Or at least more quiet!
Things start to look up until Grimbledung manages to annoy the entire Great Halfling Empire. Well, at least the Halfling soldiers in town. It takes until late in Book 2 for the ENTIRE empire to get annoyed with him. He is just one Gnome, after all. With an impending invasion, everyone is on their toes. It doesn’t help that Grimbledung is stepping on them!
