Logline

We've all heard about the famous heroes and villains of Literature - but who spares a thought for those who were written out before the final draft? Perhaps Carol K. Winters should have. For not only is she the most successful writer of children's Fantasy stories there has ever been; but more importantly, she has just woken from a serious accident to find herself on the way to the very place where all of those fictional personalities end up: The Dump of Discarded Character. And Carol doesn't like it. Fortunately, she has a new side-kick who is going to help her get home - un-fortunately, it's Dweeble the Undying Dwarf - and he's a total idiot.
