Publisher's Summary

A boy discovers his destiny could totally stink in this riotously funny fantasy-adventure 

Risk-averse Greg Belmont is content with being ordinary. He's got a friend - that's right, just one - at his fancy prep school, and a pretty cool dad (even if he is obsessed with organic soaps that smell like a mix of salted pork and Icelandic bog). The problem is, Greg isn't ordinary... he's actually an honest-to-goodness, fantastical Dwarf!  

He discovers the truth the day his dad brings home a gross new tea - one that awakens bizarre abilities in Greg. Then a murderous Bro-Troll kidnaps his dad and Greg is whisked away to the Underground, where Dwarves have lived for centuries right beneath the streets of Chicago.  

With the help of some awesome new friends and a talking ax, Greg learns all about the history of the Dwarves, which has been marked with tales of epic failure since the dawn of time. However, the return of the magic they once wielded means big changes are afoot, escalating tensions with the Dwarves' sworn enemy: the Elves.  

Brimming with humor and action, Chris Rylander's The Legend of Greg turns dwarf lore on its head, delivering an adventure listeners won't be able to resist.

Hilarious. My fav middle grade book since The Lightning Thief.

I loved this book! I read it and immediately bought the Audible version. I keep checking to see if book 2 and 3 are available here on Audible. I hope they get made soon! Great performance for an already awesome book.

Lord of the Rings meet Magnus Chase

My 9-year-old son (also named Greg) and I both loved this! It’s a very original and interesting storyline, humorous and surprising plot twists and engaging, interesting characters.

Spoiler alert: this author is clearly inspired by Rick Riordan’s famous talking weapons (Magnus Chase’s sword and Apollo’s Arrow of Dedona), as a talking weapon features prominently in the plot.

We also LOVE Robbie Daymond’s narration, he’s perfect for this. Our only complaint is wondering why books 2&3 in the series haven’t been made into audiobooks yet? Adoring fans would happily welcome them!

Hogwarts for dwarves

I started listening to this book right after I had re-read the Dresden files. Even though this book could use some polishing up I still found a way to enjoy it
