The Zaahli-Shloom - A Qwiss Adventure

When an unfortunate sneezing accident causes Annabelle Qwiss to wake up in a mysterious world, her rather boring life becomes un-boring very quickly! Not only does she find herself surrounded by a crowd of extraordinarily bizarre creatures, but this new world holds the answers to secrets that Annabelle didn’t even know existed – until now…

“This is no story. This is the truth. The truth of what lurks in the corner of your bedroom when you fall asleep at night…”
