He’s ready to leave kid-dom behind. But can he stand tall against an army of barf-inducing beasts?

Toby Baxter can’t wait to be a teenager. On the cusp of turning thirteen, the superhero-obsessed boy’s jaw drops when a baffling stranger appears and begs him for help. But when he’s led through a portal on a whirlwind trip to a magical land, he’s terrified to be plunged mid-battle between elves and a legion of stinky trolls.

Bewildered and queasy, Toby is confused when his new friends claim he is the hero who will lead them to victory. And now only his dangerous quest to retrieve a legendary slaying sword can save his skin… and turn the tide of war.

Can this newly minted teen become a real warrior and rise up as the strange realm’s savior?

The Adventures of Toby Baxter: The River Elf, The Giant, and the Closet is a high-flying middle grade fantasy. If you like daring journeys, hilarious characters, and heartfelt lessons about confidence, then you’ll love Tim Wright’s timeless tale.

Chick Lit Book Café Review:

In Tim Wright’s first book in the Toby Baxter series, Toby and his readers get whisked away on a whirlwind whimsical journey to the land of RiverHome—a place you’ll never want to leave!

As young Toby Baxter approaches the age of 13, he is about to enter “manhood.” But not in the world he is familiar with. After encountering a mysterious stranger of diminutive stature, Toby is sucked into another place called RiverHome. There, he finds barf-smelling trolls and an unforgettable battle that will launch him into his ultimate destiny. He resists the truth at first—that he can really become a man in this strange new place—but soon learns that he is gifted and capable.

Tim Wright has done an excellent job with his middle-grade adventure, which is tailor-made to captivate the imaginations of boys. He includes all the things they like—humor, adventure, and even superheroes. He also includes some creative ways to help his young readers learn some large vocabulary words. This not only cleverly enriches the reading experience but also fosters a love for learning in his youthful readership. Toby’s character is also completely relatable. He is a protagonist whose struggles and triumphs mirror those of any young reader, making him instantly endearing.

Tim Wright’s approach to writing is amazingly spot-on and Toby’s escapade in RiverHome is an unforgettable journey filled with laughter and boundless excitement. Overall, The Adventures of Toby Baxter: The River Elf, The Giant, And The Closet by Tim Wright is book one in the series and is wholesome, entertaining, and engaging fun for kids and tweens and comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Book Café. Book read and reviewed by Micah Giordonela for Chick Lit Book Café.
