Avery Overman's Adventures In Underbed

Avery Overman has a very high temperature. In fact, his mom says he's "burning up" and makes him stay in bed in the middle of the day. Avery doesn't like being treated like a baby, but he has to admit he isn't feeling very good; he's dizzy and he's sweating a lot. When he accidentally falls out of his covers, he notices how much nicer it looks under the bed: darker, quieter, and cooler. So he shimmies beneath the box spring...and discovers that Underbed is actually a bigger place than he ever imagined-a strange world filled with cattle rustlers and mobsters and robots and alligators, and a slippery menace called Copperhead who seems to be after Avery himself. His only hope of survival is a charming but mysterious protector who is never quite what he seems to be. Wickedly funny, fast-paced and suspenseful, Avery Overman's Adventures In Underbed is a 21st-century descendant of Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz, with more crazy changes of scene than you can get from flipping TV channels. It's a wild ride through sheer imagination, with an ending that warms the heart.
