The city of Traäkerfaxx is renowned as the world center for facts, for in this city lives the Facttracker, an enigmatic man whose job is to keep track of ever fact in the world and distribute relevant facts to people who are looking for them.
But in the city of Traäkerfaxx lives another person, a “just small enough” boy who is shunned by others because unlike the people around him there are no facts about him.
And on the horizon, approaching the city of Traäkerfaxx is another man, Ersatz, who loves lies, rumors, tales, exaggerations and slander.
“The Facttracker,” by Jason Carter Eaton has a plot that seems to get more and more exaggerated, like a lie that starts out small and then gets larger. The characters are hugely exaggerated and almost ridiculous. However, “The Facttracker” is still bound to appeal to young readers because of its unusual theme and the authors unique technique of reader interaction, often addressing the read personally, even in the middle of a chapter.
“The Facttracker,” is not exactly a profound piece of literature, but its sure to satisfy young readers.
