Summary

"You can't help falling in love with this hilarious upside-down take on Dungeons & Dragons. I read; I cheered; I laughed out loud."--Gordon Korman

In the mystical realm of Bríandalör, every day the brave and the bold delve into hidden temples or forgotten dungeons, battling vile monsters and evil wizards to loot their treasure hoards for sweet, sweet magic items.

But in their free time, our heroes--Thromdurr the mighty barbarian, Devis the shifty thief, Vela the noble paladin, Sorrowshade the Gloom Elf assassin, and Albiorix the (good!) wizard--need to relax and unwind.

That's why they meet up once a week to play Homerooms & Hall Passes: a role-playing game where they assume the characters of average American eighth graders.

But when the five young adventurers are magically transported into their H&H game by an ancient curse, they must band together to survive their toughest challenge yet: middle school.

Who knew that battling ogres would be easier than passing algebra or navigating the cafeteria social scene? They must use what they've learned from playing Homerooms & Hall Passes to figure out how to save their game world (which might actually be real...).

Dungeons & Dragons meets Jumanji in this new, laugh-out-loud adventure series from the author of the beloved Hamstersaurus Rex series.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pulling a terrific switcheroo on the trapped in a video game premise, O'Donnell sends five young adventurers of the magical land of Bríandalör (a paladin, a thief, a barbarian berserker, a depressive gloom elf assassin, and apprentice wizard Albiorix) into the challenging fantasy realm of the titular RPG they had been playing as a change of pace from the usual quests: to wit, J. A. Dewar Middle School. Fortunately, they arrive on Dress Like a Pirate Day; unfortunately, by the terms of both the game and the curse that has struck them, there will be no return if anyone blows it by flunking any class. If the maddening puzzles of Algebra I or the deadly peril of getting on queen bee Nicole Davenport's wrong side weren't hazards enough, the heroes discover that they've brought along Zazirak, an evil sorcerer who has taken over the body of the vice principal and intends to set the demon Azathor the Devourer upon our defenseless world. Played out with impeccable, hilarious logic, the plot leads up an adventuresome learning curve to a brisk battle in a local mall with animated mannequins, a really high-stakes duel involving the evocatively named phone game Oink Pop, and a final realization that Bríandalör's dangers, lore, glittering treasures, and opportunities for daring exploits seem a bit pale next to those of . . . exotic suburbia. Who's to tell them nay?--John Peters Copyright 2010 Booklist"
