Welcome to the Land of Ever-Night. Bafflerog Rumplewhisker is an evil wizard, from a long line of evil wizards. It's his job to maintain the darkness spells that keep his corner of Ever-Night as dark and gloomy as the rest of it, and to find the long-lost BOOK OF WORSE, which holds magical spells that can crush the forces of goodness and light forever. There's only one problem-his heart's just not in it. Master storytellers Kurt Busiek and David T. Wenzel invite you to join Bafflerog and his companions-Gumpwort, an enchanted toad who was once a wizard himself, and Muddle, the third son of a woodcutter who's convinced he'll one day be king-as they make a journey that may mean the end of everything. Or maybe... it could mean something else.
