TO THE RESCUE


Grundy Golem was the size of an inconsequence, and nobody had any respect for him - including Grundy!  To prove himself, he volunteered to ride the Monster Under the Bed to the Ivory Tower to find little Ivy's long lost dragon, Stanley Steamer.

After many adventures, he reached the Tower to learn that the Evil Sea Hag kept lovely Rapunzel imprisoned there, her body destined to be used to maintain the witch's immortality.  Grundy managed to free the damsel, and they fled together.

As the descendant of Jordan the Barbarian and Bluebell Elf, Rapunzel could become any size, even that of any Golem's dreamgirl.  But Grundy knew she was surely fated for someone better than he.  Besides, the Sea Hag still pursued them to destroy him and get her back.

And he still hadn't found Stanley Steamer.

Notes and Comments:
First Edition: February 1986

I had this in hardback from the Science Fiction Book Club but sold it and got the paperback instead - it matched all my other Xanth books that way.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
