Summary 'Two Surface-dwellers. Two! He's a Fattypuff and you're a Thinifer. There's no doubt about it!' This is the tale of two brothers. Edmund is a little on the plump side and Terry is a bit of a rake. When they discover the countries under the Earth they are divided and sent to the warring kingdoms of the Fattypuffs and the Thinifers. The Fattypuffs eat six square meals a day with light snacks in between. The Thinifers like nothing more than discipline and work six days a week. Whether you are a jolly Fattypuff or a driven Thinifer you'll be rooting for the brothers to bring peace to the countries under the Earth. Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can take the quiz to find out if you're a Fattypuff or a Thinifer!
