The Magnificent Twelve: Phobia of the Day

Aug 25, 2010

Phobia of the Day

  • Anablephobia: Fear of looking up
  • Bogyphobia: Fear of the bogeyman
  • Dendrophobia: Fear of trees
  • Chronomentrophobia: Fear of clocks
  • Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia: Fear of long words
  • Lachanophobia: Fear of vegetables

The 12-year old main character of the book, Mack MacAvoy, deals with lots of odd phobias along the way to becoming leader of the mystical The Magnificent 12 clan.

Mack suffers from a serious case of mediumness. Medium looks. Medium grades. Medium parents who barely notice him. With a list of phobias that could make anyone crazy, Mack never would have guessed that he is destined for a more-than-medium life.

The Magnificent Twelve : The CallThe Magnificent Twelve : The Call

And then, one day, something incredibly strange happens to Mack. A three-thousand-year-old man named Grimluk appears in the boys’ bathroom to deliver some startling news: Mack is one of the Magnificent Twelve, called the Magnifica in ancient times, whatever that means. An evil force is on its way, and it’s up to Mack to track down eleven other twelve-year-olds in order to stop it. He must travel across the world to battle the wicked Pale Queen’s dangerous daughter, Ereskigal—also known as Risky. But Risky sounds a little scary, and Mack doesn’t want to be a hero. Will he answer the call?

I day dream ALL day and can control my dreams, so I can't really pick one lol  Though night dreaming is more real and I can see the image till I go into the 2-5 stage of sleep.
