Sterling Nixon – Nickle Brickle’Bee
Nickle Brickle’Bee is odd, even by his own standards. While most boys are starting to get hair under their arms, Nickle starts growing whiskers on his chin. By the time he is twelve, he can grow a full beard. Then one day, Nickle finds himself swallowed by the earth and taken to the center of the world where he finds a massive magical city called EarthWorks that is governed by a myriad of powerful creatures. Between horrifying monsters, Elves that rule with pomp and power, Fairies that are in open rebellion, a greedy Dwarf Warlord, and an indestructible but blind adversary, Nickle finds himself in the middle of a power struggle that could mean the end of this new world.
