Dilby R. Dixon was no ordinary 10-year-old boy. He was an outcast, the odd kid in school. Growing up as an only child, he had gotten accustomed to a life of solitude. In fact, he had no friends at all, which made him question whether or not he fit in with others in school or in this world.
To occupy his time, Dilby turned to his wild imagination as he would dream of the most unbelievable places and have the most amazing adventures. From these dreams, he created a secret journal of weird words that he called, the Dilbonary, which he took it everywhere he went, guarding it with his life.
No one knew the Dilbonary existed, that was until the 6th grade when Riley Rogers, the school bully, got a hold of it, setting off a chain of events that would alter Dilby’s life forever.
Then, just after his 11th Birthday, something extraordinary happened, leading him to embark on the biggest adventure of his life and finding the truth behind who he really is.
