Summary
A boy named Kevin escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarves. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being, they plunder treasure from Napoleon and Agamemnon; but Evil is watching their every move. A giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire on technology gone awry
