"Twenty-four hours ago I was just a Leftover. I'd only had to worry about being hassled by bullies. Now I had giant metal men literally popping out of nowhere, Homeland Security was watching me, and my bully problem was about to multiply by a factor of ten.
Could things get worse?
It turned out they could."
Fast-paced light-hearted science fiction with Catholic themes for ages 9-12.
Edward's scientist dad has been missing for two years when suddenly strange things begin to happen: A knight on horseback bursts through the stacks at the library and attacks Edward; strange infantry soldiers appear at Edward's school; and suddenly the FBI and Homeland Security get involved. Edward has to rely on his wits to find his father and find a way to bring him back.
Short chapters, funny illustrations, and lots of action will make this a favorite read for boys!

From Barnes and Noble:
McNichol has given kids (and adults) a story of an unlikely young hero surmounting impossible--literally impossible--odds with the help of, of all people, his family and the heavenly host. This is an excellent read for those kids who want fantasy that uplifts rather than degrades. Well done! I am looking forward to reading more of McNichol's work, now that I know where to find it!
