The last elf is over one million years old. He has been awakened to the time of Today, for a great mission: to do battle with the evil Black Elf, with the help of three children and a cowardly beagle named Junkett. Assisting the elf in his cause, is a wizard named Dellick, and an amazing creature the size of a dragon called a Bandanglesnort. Together, these odd individuals must transport themselves to Other World, where the Black Elf plots and plans to destroy our world forever. Once in Other World, the last elf, Junket, and friends confront adventures and creatures unbelievable to sight and imagination. Jenny, a friendly ghost, and Therlock, a grumpy vampire, join the group, as they must all face giant brain-eating snakes, Demon Helpers to the Black Elf, goblins, and gigantic scorpions. The clock is ticking against our heroes, for the Black Elf aims to murder all the children in Other World, and then target our world shortly thereafter. It is up to the last elf, Junkett and company to stop not only wholesale murder in Other World—but the destruction of Earth itself!
