what sort of mechanism changes the sign, he goes inside to ask the shop owner about it. Before he knows it, he's whisked off on an unexpected adventure, making friends with elves, dwarves, and others, and on his way to battle a dragon who's been terrorizing the countryside! While I found the story a bit predictable, and the characters somewhat one-dimentional, it is overall an enjoyable story that middle grade to YA readers would enjoy. Slathbog's Gold by M.L. Foreman was first published in 2009.
