Jeff Smax, a major character in Moore's enthralling TOP 10 series, must return to his home world after many years on Earth. Accompanied by his fellow Neopolis's Precinct Ten police officer Robyn "Toybox" Slinger, Jeff must face a myriad of challenges ranging from cutting through mountainous red tape to go on a quest, doing battle with the most monstrous of all dragons, and adapting to a world where the laws of physics are not only unheard of, they just plain don't work. Not to mention Jeff's sister... Jeff Smax, a major character in Alan Moores enthralling TOP 10 series, must return to his homeworld after many years on Earth.

Review
Gr 7 Up –Jeff Smax and his partner, Toybox, characters from Moore’s police series “Top 10,” spin off and journey to Jeff’s home world. It’s here that many of the questions that readers have had about Jeff are finally answered. Science and technology don’t exist and myth and magic rule, however bureaucratically. There are dragons to slay and quotas to fill, and who better than Jaafs the dragonslayer? Jeff is not that happy about the possibility of getting sucked back into a world that he has happily left behind but the results are fun and enjoyable. Those who have not read “Top 10” should be able to pick up this title with little problem. It’s perfect for fans of Terry Pratchett’s “Discworld” series (HarperCollins). The cartoon art fits the story well and will appeal to a wide audience.–Melissa T. Jenvey, New York Public Library --Melissa T. Jenvey (Reviewed March 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 3, p251)
