Book 33 for 2012

Muddle Earth by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. 448 pages.

Fantasy humour aimed at teenagers. Young Joe is summoned to Muddle Earth by Randalf the Wise, who's looking for a warrior hero to go on a quest for him. Of course Joe isn't really a warrior hero, but then Randalf isn't much of a wizard…

Reasonably amusing and readable enough, but the joke wears a bit thin after a bit.
