A word of caution
This book pokes fun at everything. You already know this.
But to give you an example of what it makes fun of, here’s a list of everything that the book has mocked so far:
1. Larry Dobber by K. B. Tipling: the worst-selling children’s book series that is threatening to turn itself into a major Honnyword movie unless it is stopped. Here are the books in order: Larry Dobber & the Soothsayer’s Bone / Larry Dobber & the Pholospher’s Chrone, Larry Dobber & the Cahbmer of Sercets, Larry Dobber & the Poisoner of Altazan, Larry Dobber & the Cup of Burnt Oil, Larry Dobber & the Legoin of the Penguinz, Larry Dobber & the Quarter-Vail Plince, Larry Dobber & the Deadly Hammers.
2. The Blightnight Snaga by Bethenie Leyar: paranormal romance about a girl and a fampire, which was embraced by scores of young girls everywhere.
3. Innovation Chain by Chirstofar Pailname: written by a teenager, long maligned for glorifying fire-breathing destructive flying oversized lizards.
4. Kercy Mackson & the Asgardians by Nick Weirdon: a mixture of modern-day fantasy and mythology.
5. Children of the Bread Ping series (also known as the Narlie Tone series) by Penny Limmo: Long maligned as a Larry Dobber lookalike, this series centers on a young boy with strange powers who gets with other kids with strange powers and fights against adults with strange powers.
6. The Starvation & Fight to the Death Games by Zucanne Follins: a controversial dystopian tale about a girl who wins fame and respect by shooting rocks at her rivals for the enjoyment of a bunch of kid-hating adults.
7. Atalan Swan by Ein Copper: the story of a kid posing as a mafia don who dared to mess with fairies.
8. Soul Taker Trilogy by Nessel Harrymann: A medieval-type story that was banned in the USA for having a gay hero, but became a bestseller everywhere else.
