Little People: A Fantasy Story About Fathers, Sons, and Monsters is a 20,000 word YA fantasy adventure story that will appeal to readers of all ages. It deals with some pretty large (and small) themes, and just a heads up—it‘s a little dark. In it, a town is terrorized, an adult makes a terrible choice, and a child is badly hurt—and that’s just the first chapter. Things get even wilder after that.
Below is the title and plot description.
Little People: A Fantasy Story About Fathers, Sons, and Monsters by Daniel Charles Wild
Five days after his estranged father’s funeral, a young man is visited in his apartment by two tiny figurines from the father’s basement model train diorama.
They are desperate for help and claim that their world is in terrible danger. Their sun has been out for a week, the train has stopped running, and an unstoppable monster from the outside world has gotten into the basement.
This is a wild adventure that may or may not be true about a son’s discovery of and quest to save the hidden world his mysterious father left behind.
Here’s what early reviewers have to say about Little People:
“Swept away. Powerful and lovely tangle of imagery and emotion.”
“…a deeper story about memory, braveness, and forgiveness.”
“Found myself unable to put it down.”
“…it embodies all of the aspects that make a story worth reading.”
“A story of misunderstanding and hurt followed by forgiveness and redemption.”
“Gulliver meets Through the Looking Glass, but with more blood!”
If you like fantasy that has a heart and deeper message, you might enjoy “Little People.” On one level it’s a adventure story about a family, hidden worlds, and monsters. On another, it’s about how memories mislead, courage comes in all sizes, and how seeking to understand and forgive can be the greatest quest of all.
