Unboxing Dwarf Story by Professor W.W. Marplot

(Last Updated On: July 22, 2020)

Hi friends, welcome to something a little different here at Reader Voracious! Today I have an unboxing and feature of Dwarf Story by W.W. Marplot that I’m really excited to share with you all.

This package was sent to me by Books Forward to unbox for you. Dwarf Story was released on June 30, 2020 and looks like a delightful read for middle grade fantasy readers! I can’t wait to read it when… you know… I’m reading books again. *stares longingly at giant stack of unread books*

The Unboxing Video

Do you like awkwardly filmed, first impressions unboxings? Then you’ve come to the right place!

I don’t read a lot of middle grade but this sounds SO GOOD!? I love books that infuse our world with magical and mystical beings, and this sounds like a book I would have loved to read when I was younger. (And now. I’ll enjoy it now, too!)


About Dwarf Story

Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy, Fabulism  |  Format: Paperback  |  Source: Publisher

First, Arty finds a sweaty, bearded ax-swinging warrior Dwarf scaring his dogs. Soon enough, Emma, Cry, and other middle-school friends also find fairy creature—Elves, Spriggans, Pixies, and a hoped-for Dragon—crashing into their normal homework-doing, backpack-carrying, phone-charging schooldays. Why are these magical beings here? What should be done? Is that ax sharp? Can Pixies be given aspirin?

Arty, with his friends—and spying jerks and questionable strangers with long names—follow the clues and try to find out, even as things turn dark and dangerous. The mythical beings take sides. The Gwyllion, that legendary Old Woman of the Mountains, has a sinister plan that will turn the neighborhood into a fantasy battleground..

Photo of the PR box and my cat DeviIt’s totally worth mentioning that my cat Devi (pictured above) absolutely LOVED this box as well. She wanted to claim it for herself and it was so difficult to get her attention elsewhere to film, haha.

Thank you so much for sending this PR box my way, Jennifer & Books Forward!
