Tito's Inferno: Descent Into TitanMart
Author: John S. Hutton
An original from blue manatee press, in the spirit of Roald Dahl, Lewis Carroll, MT Anderson, and Trenton Lee Stewart, with not a little Dante blended in. Eleven-year-old Tito Skaggs thinks he's on just another lame summer car trip to Nature World. A detour to polluted Sanguine Lake proves him wrong, as his parents are swept away by its newest tenant, MegaMega TitanMart. Guided by a mysterious red-haired girl and a polite yet hulking figment concocted in a hotel bathroom, he must rescue them, braving aisles packed with traps, henchmen clerks, and wicked Gourdon, all doing the bidding of The Manager in a plot larger and more evil than he could have imagined. Excellent Value™ indeed... Trade paperback, printed in the USA.
