Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Excellent…palpable excitement and suspense. Kids and adults will enjoy this charming tale of good and evil.”  Publishers Weekly
Excellent...palpable excitement and suspense. Kids and adults will enjoy this charming tale of good and evil." -- Publishers Weekly
“A fizzy blend of high and low fantasy with a distinctly American sensibility…This recalls Michael Chabon’s Summerland for its mix of humor and terror, its splendidly unpredictable plot twists, and its intriguing vision of a reality that is wider than most of us suspect.”
