Publisher's Summary

Here's a new fantasy adventure series that has young readers dreaming for more!

Fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps (a.k.a. "Lev") is no ordinary boy, but that's exactly what Sabine and his dark shadows want him to believe. They know the fate of the world and the dreams of all mankind can be saved by one boy with a powerful gift, one he has yet to understand or control. Enter Clover, a funny foot-high sidekick; Winter, a girl who can freeze things; and Geth, the rightful heir to the dream world of Foo. Three transplants with only one mission: to retrieve Leven and save Foo.

Can this unique band of travelers help Lev overcome his doubt and convince him to do what only he can do? Will Leven find the Gateway in time? Will fate make the difference?

This is the first book of Leven Thumps and his extraordinary journey to a magical place that can no longer be hidden. Welcome to Foo.

New to Foo? Don't miss the second book in the Leven Thumps series, Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret.

    "good story, reader for much younger kids"

    I am not a fan of the reader. he sounds too much like he's reading to very small children. I find it hard to listen to and teenagers would find it painfully condescending. It is a little less painful if you set playback at 1.25 speed. The story is good. Very creative when it comes to the working of dreams by people who slipped out of our world. The fantasy world also seems consistent enough to follow its own rules, which is important.

    "Great for young teens"

    An exciting book for ages 10-14. Did a good job maintaining the energy in the book Great for long drives.

    "A Good Listen for Younger Audiences"

    Despite the fact that the characters in this book are 14, the book was obviously written for the preteen or tween set. The book has a certain number of the "young audience" fantasy archetypes: the kid stuck in cruel circumstances, the wise mage to lead him on his quest, the evil enemy bent on controlling the world -- and thus, quite accidentally, destroying it. But the nature of Foo -- the land where all human dreams come from, makes this a little bit different.

    I will not tell you it's great, because it is not! But younger audiences should appreciate and enjoy it.

    "Another great performance!"

    Not easy to find a narrator who can bring life to a story like E. B. Stevens can, add his talent to a good book and you have yourself a piece of art! And as my 13 year old self and my 20 year old self can attest, this is a good book!

    "Great for the whole family!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo to be better than the print version?

    The audiobook was great for our autistic daughter. She really got into the series and the narrator made that happen. I listened to this one, but read the print version of some others in the series. After having listened to this first, I read with E.B. Steven's voices in my head. :)
