Elliot and the Pixie Plot (Underworld Chronicle #2) begins where the first book of the series, Elliot and the Goblin War, leaves off with Eleven year old Elliot Penster becoming king of the Brownies.
Elliot thinks his life is bad when he gets paired up with Cami 'Toadface' as his science partner. It gets worse when he has to host his nemesis, the former Tub Lawless for a sleepover. But when Harold the Shapeshifter shows up, real chaos ensues. The Pixie princess, Fidget Spitfly, wants Elliot to release Grissel, the Goblin's leader, from Brownie prison and sends Harold to threaten Elliot into releasing him.
In a humorous, action filled quest to meet the demands of the angry fairies, Elliot must navigate the dangers of the Underworld, like gripping mud, to find a certain creature to bring back items demanded from the fairies.
I loved the whimsical nature of the narrator in this book. The action filled plot made me want to keep reading. Though I did not read the first book in the series, I was able to easily able to get into this book without any confusion. Reading The Pixie Plot definitely made me want to read the first book and got me excited for a future book. Great as a stand alone book as well as an integral part of a light fantasy series which the middle grade reader will look forward to. Highly recommended for fun fantasy and humor for ages 8-12.
