About The Book

The first four books in the New York Times bestselling, highly illustrated, and laugh-out-loud funny Once Upon a Tim series by Spy School author Stuart Gibbs are now available together in a paper over board boxed set!

Once upon a time there was a peasant named Tim.

Yes, you read that right. This is the story of a peasant. But Tim dreams of being much more than a lowly farmer. Even if that means taking treacherous journeys filled with menacing beasts, dastardly mazes, deadly seas, and very devious humans.

Until now, the only path to success in the kingdom was to be born a prince.

But there’s never been a hero like Tim before.

This swashbuckling paper over board boxed includes:
Once Upon a Tim
The Labyrinth of Doom
The Sea of Terror
The Quest of Danger
