Editorial Reviews

A knee-slapper. Kirkus Reviews
Coville brings his signature wit and humor to this fantasy story. This second installment adds authentic and engaging, multidimensional characters to a strong series that finds heroes in outcasts. School Library Journal   Praise for Cursed, the first book in THE ENCHANTED FILES:   * “Coville brings it off with wit, style, and respect. The first volume of the Enchanted Files series is smart, amusing, and a lot of fun.
“An anxious poetry-writing griffin named Gerald and his human friend, Brad, record their hilarious adventures in diary format, with a full cast ably voicing the many characters. While their adventures contain serious themes of bullying and finding one’s way in the world, humor and expert narration keep those weighty issues light and entertaining.” ReadBrightly (An Ultimate Audiobook Pick for Summer 2017)
“Coville brings his signature wit and humor to this fantasy story. This second installment adds authentic and engaging, multidimensional characters to a strong series that finds heroes in outcasts.” School Library Journal
“A full cast, including the author and audio luminaries such as Jayne Entwistle, Kirby Heyborne, Scott Brick, Paul Boehmer, and Arthur Morey, joins narrators Matthew Frow and Jeremy Gumbs, enlarging the humor in this story. The featured character is a poetry-writing griffin named Gerald, whose anxiety often gets the better of him. The story is told by Gerald and his human friend, Brad, mostly in diary format. The variety of voices helps listeners identify each of the many characters. Themes of bullying and finding one’s place in the world are common threads in Coville’s writing, and the narrators do a good job keeping these weighty issues light and entertaining while driving home the need for kindness and compassion.” AudioFile
