In a world like nothing ever encountered before, Up and Down is home to fish people plagued by fire demons who cause no end of trouble. With a penguin king, hot sauce everywhere, and not forgetting the exciting (and bloodthirsty) sport of bubbleball, and even more hot sauce, it is truly unforgettable, for all the right reasons.

Up and Down: Glugg and the Gangoils is unique. It is written for twelve year old boys (and girls), by twelve year old boys and may be the only book that can say this. Every detail of the world, plot and characters came straight out of the heads of twelve year olds. They dreamt up entire new sports, magic systems, villages, monsters and story lines. They also approved every chapter and insisted on making it much more blood-thirsty and a lot funnier.
