When you're the heir to Dark Lord, trying to live up to your great and terrible destiny, life can be tough. Especially when you're twelve, kind of short, plagued with allergies, and can't even cast a simple Fart Revealer spell because frankly, you're pretty mediocre with the whole magic thing. Mostly, he's just trying to survive Middle Ages School without embarrassing himself too much - no small task. Author Mike Johnston, has been entertaining young readers with his series, Confessions of a Dork Lord, which is full of humor, hijinks and lively illustrations.
