original titleBernie and the Putty
edition languageEnglish

We have all heard of the fabled perfect being, the Greek God.

Well, how about a geek god? Named Bernie, yet.

Fresh with his diploma from God School, determined but unsure, bright but without confidence, Bernie faces the challenge of building his own universe. If only it were that easy...

An old school rival will do whatever it takes to ensure Bernie's failure, even if it means destroying his world.

It’s god vs. god, guile vs. goodness, where only one of them plays by the rules. Bernie must find a way to outwit his evil foe. If he fails, it will cost him everything. 

A fascinating tale of good vs. evil and a young hero on a journey of self-discovery in an original, humorous, fantastic wrapper.

my thoughts:

Unique and fun.  Bernie is a wonderful character.  I loved him from the beginning.  I couldn't put this book down!  Hooked from the very beginning.

There is a good vs bad storyline, Bernie comes up against Billy.  Billy holds a grudge against Bernie and is just a rotten apple. Bernie is a geek and a bit of an underdog.  Everyone loves the underdog.
Bernie is even more likable because he's unaware of just how good a character he is.  

Mr. LeBel did a great job of explaining the universe and the young gods' role in creation. 

This is a unique story.  Hopefully the start of many.  Well done Mr. LeBel!
