Beneath the very ground on which you walk and beyond the stars above your head are more worlds than you could ever dream of: there are monsters of which to be afraid, there is magic wielded by witches and sorcerers, there are epic adventures in worlds far across the ocean, and fearsome weapons which threaten to destroy everything.
Jimmy Crikey is a the alien child who chose to stay on Earth, despite the bullies. This brave soul overcomes and faces some pretty scary challenges. Solving mysteries and averting mayhem, his incredible courage allows him to free up his abilities to shine and rise above every challenge in his path on his way to discovering why he looks so very strange.
With a bright red mop of unruly hair, big blue eyes, a small snub nose, pointed ears, and enormous feet, poor Jimmy is ridiculed by the neighborhood children and runs away in search of a world where he fits in. Following a midnight flight through the forest, he stumbles into a lost, underground world called Roombelow, and magic, adventure, danger, and excitement await.
From the little lady who lived at the bottom of a well but didn’t klnow how she got there, to a starship that wants to take him home, trolls, little people, traders, and diamonite stealers, even water sprites, witches, helpful dolphins, and interplanetary warfare, Jimmy copes with it all and learns the biggest lessons of his life.
