I'm not sure exactly what to say about such a slapstick story, but you can get an idea of the contents if I tell you this: Gardner says his heroes (among others) are Rocky & Bullwinkle, Pogo, and the Monty Python crew...

From back cover: Wuntvor has caught the cold eye of Death himself, who seeks to add the hapless apprentice to his morbid minions. To lure the lad to his dread domain, the Relentless Reaper has captured the wizard in his grim grasp! Now, if the Fates (Mary Jane, Victoria and Hortense) allow, Wuntvor will strike out for Death's Kingdom, to engage the Specter in strange and noisy contests, so that Ebenezum might be spared. But Wunt must walk the alleys and lanes of the Afterlife with caution, lest he stumble into a gutter and lose Death's game...permanently.

Verse the Third in The Ballad of Wuntvor.

Wuntvor, hapless apprentice to the mighty mage Ebenezum. A new adventure as he tries to save his master from the clutches of Death itself!

The adventure is serious, but the book is funny, wry, crisp. An ejoyable, fun read.
