Book Feature: Nimpentoad
by Henry, Josh & Harrison Herz

The furry, bright-eyed little Nimpentoad is tired of being picked on by the bigger and meaner creatures of the ancient shadowy Grunwald Forest. He convinces his fellow Niblings to make the perilous journey to a castle where they hope to find refuge. Along the way, they are confronted by ravenous goblins, trolls, rhinotaurs, and other perils. But with teamwork and Nimpentoad's leadership, the Niblings outwit these menaces.

The tale takes place in a fantasy ecosphere comfortably familiar to fans of The Hobbit and Harry Potter. What makes Nimpentoad unique is that the story's humor and implicit lessons on bullying, teamwork, perseverance and leadership please parents, while the images and writing style strongly connect with young readers, as evidenced by 40 5-star Amazon ratings.

"It's way too rare that there are books that both my 6-year-old and I can be charmed by and want to read over and over! Luckily, Nimpentoad is one of those books!" - Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer of IDW Publishing

Henry Herz’s love of the fantasy genre began in elementary school with Where the Wild Things Are and The Lord of the Rings and continued by playing Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer. Struck by inspiration one day, Henry began a fun project with his two bright young sons, who share his joy of entering the magical realms of fantasy. Together, they wrote this tale.
