Mold is a most unlikely hero, but with courage and heart even bigger than his enormous nose, he sets out to save his beloved guardian, Aggy, who has been wrongly-accused of poisoning the King. As Mold fights to clear Aggy's name, he meets deadly monsters like the Yurg, but he also finds true friendship in the most unusual - and smelly - of places.
