Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Neil Patrick Harris’s tone aims at taking listeners into his confidence…Harris’ breathless style suggests he’s telling the story exclusively for each listener. His characters are distinctive: Carter’s trust issues are portrayed clearly; the other young people sound believable; and the villain, B. B. Bosso, comes across as appropriately gruff and conniving…The many characters add to the story’s excitement.” AudioFile
“I read this book with excitement, delight, and the increasing suspicion that it was going to make me disappear.” Lemony Snicket, New York Times bestselling author
“The approachable length and lively, funny writing will ensure this book, the first in a series, performs its own vanishing act from shelves.” Booklist
Adventure, suspense, and excitement await these young magic misfits as they learn to trust one another and become friends. School Library Connection
“An earnest message about discovering the magic in the world and finding the family that suits you.” Kirkus Reviews
“A rollicking ride of a magical tale that’s wholesomely suspenseful, values friendship, and applauds courage.” School Library Journal
