Add to Wish List
From New York Times bestselling author John Connolly, a
wonderfully strange and brilliant novel about a boy, his
dog, and their struggle to escape the wrath of demons. Young
Samuel Johnson is in trouble. Not only is his eyesight so
poor that he mistakenly asks out a letter box on a date, but
an angry demon is seeking revenge for Samuel’s part in
foiling the invasion of Earth by the forces of evil. It
wants to get its claws on Samuel, and when Samuel and his
faithful dachshund, Boswell, are pulled through a portal
into the dark realm, the home of the Infernals, it gets its
But catching Samuel is not going to be easy, for the
Infernals have not reckoned on the bravery and cleverness of
a boy and his dog, or the loyalty of Samuel’s friend, the
hapless demon Nurd, or the presence of two clueless
policemen and the unlucky, if cheerfully optimistic, driver
of an ice-cream van.
Most of all, no one has planned on the intervention of an
unexpected band of little men, for Samuel and Boswell are
not the only inhabitants of Earth who have found themselves
in the underworld. If you thought demons were frightening,
just wait until you meet Mr. Merryweather’s Elves. . . .
