From the Publisher:
From National Book Award and Printz Honor winner M.T. Anderson comes the amazing conclusion to his Norumbegan Quartet!
Brian and Gregory have seen it all. They've played a strange, twisty game and won, and then created their own...sort of. They've gone to investigate intergalactic suburban sprawl that was infringing on the Vermont forests, and landed in the empire of New Norumbega inside the huge body of an alien. They've escaped certain death, walked right into it, and wreaked small amounts of havoc of their own. And finally, they're going to make sense of all their travels and adventures...if they possibly can!
Part fantasy, part mystery, part quest, part Monty Python, the Game of Sunken Places #4 brings to a close the incredible, strange, funny journey of Brian and Gregory, as only the masterful M. T. Anderson could.
Children's book author M.T. Anderson had a diverse working background--including jobs as DJ, teacher, editorial assistant, and music critic--prior to writing such critical successes and bestsellers as the young-adult science fiction novel FEED and the hilarious middle-grade mystery series, M.T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales. He is most well-known for his 2006 National Book Award-winning book THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, a brilliant and disturbing story about slavery. He received a Printz Honor for this title as well. Anderson attended Harvard University and received his B.A. from Cambridge University and an M.F.A. from Syracuse University.
