An excerpt from the book:
Klay's hulking silhouette swayed across the exterior of an unimpressive thatched- roof hut. His body was carved from a slab of red clay. It appeared that a mad-minded potter had thrown him together on a psychopathic whim. He was the warrior chieftain of the Ashfolk, the leader who now led them to command a most certain victory over the persecuted Scarecrow people.

About the Author
Little is known about the reclusive author, but what is known is this: Honolulu Polkadot, contrary to popular belief, was not born in Hawaii at all, but rather in a small town in Texas. The town was prone to attacks from the occasional appearance of marauding pirates and infestations of giant crop rats. A statue of Honolulu Polkadot was erected early last summer with a plaque that reads: "Honolulu Polkadot, inventor of the electric nose-picker, and beloved candle-stick maker." Polkadot has chosen to spend his time away from the attention that his popular books have spawned, and he now spends his days quietly writing stories for all to enjoy.
