Doodles Lanhorn is a red-headed boy of thirteen who doesn't feel very popular or successful but he does have a special talent: he has recently discovered the powers of Wizartry, the art of drawing something and making it come to life. Doodles comes to learn that he is unique in that he does not require a paintbrush like most Wizarts; he can draw with just the use of his hands. In this new novel, Doodles must deal with old enemies, rescue his family, and ultimately save Inner Earth, the sacred land of the Wizarts. With the help of his friends Laura, Darren, and Boogley, a special creature, Doodles is able to overcome his fears so he can face all these obstacles, head on.

A Tramp Abroad is a work of travel literature, including a mixture of autobiography and fictional events, by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. The book is the third of Mark Twain's five travel books and is often thought to be an unofficial sequel to the first one, The Innocents Abroad.As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

The life of Doodles Lanhorn is mediocre at best. Between his unruly red hair and lanky frame, being bullied at school, and constantly being pestered by his father to go out for a sport-any sport-all he ever wants to do is lock himself away in the world of his drawings. Despite having a tight-knit group of friends, Doodles often feels alone, and his non-confrontational nature often makes it hard for him to interact at all-so, what is the point? Then everything changes on his thirteenth birthday... A book filled with gorgeous paintings, a mysterious note from a stranger, a lone bookstore, and a single paintbrush pave the way to a world where magic is commonplace, and imagination is the only limitation. A "lifelike painting" takes on a whole new meaning as Doodles explores the world of Wizartry-a proud, haphazard heritage hidden away from prying eyes. With the fate of another whole world hanging in the balance, Doodles must face his fears, challenge his faults, and discover an ability he didn't even know he had. He encounters friends and foes alike as he journeys through the secretive practice of the Wizarting world. With little guidance from his master, Doodles must pass each test and win the favor of the Gate Council in order to earn his place among this elite group. But his journey is just beginning... Join Doodles as he must discern truth from rumor, fact from myth, and good from evil in this hero's journey where a boy becomes a man. Can he uncover the plot to destroy Inner Earth? Will he be able to reverse the Eraser in time? Pick up your paintbrush and discover what lies ahead...
