A Little About Magnus Opum:
Magnus Opum is an epic fantasy that’s slightly skewed – Tolkien with a twist. “At the end of the day, the story of Magnus Mandalora of the small homely village of Lower Kertoob is fun, funny, educational, and a master work of both parody AND satire rolled into an easy-to-read family-friendly story.” - Jeremy Rodden, author of Kindle bestselling cartoon novel – Toonopolis: Gemini (Toonopolis Files, #1)
About the Author:
Jonathan Gould has lived in Melbourne, Australia all his life, except when he hasn’t. He has written comedy sketches for both the theatre and radio, as well as several published children’s books for the educational market.
He likes to refer to his stories as dag-lit because they don’t easily fit into recognisable genres (dag is Australian slang for a person who is unfashionable and doesn’t follow the crowd – but in an amusing and fun way). You might think of them as comic fantasies, or modern fairytales for the young and the young-at-heart.
