Synopsis (from blackholly.com):
The Grace kids are just beginning to get used to Aunt Lucinda’s strange old mansion when Simon suddenly disappears. Jared and his sister have to rely on the help of a mischievous house boggart, a nasty bridge troll, and a loud-mouthed hobgoblin to get him back. Illustrations.


My Thoughts:

In book two, the Grace children are coming to grips with the fact that where they live is “different” and the world around them isn’t exactly what they’ve been taught.  This one is action packed kicking off with Simon’s disappearance and catapulting through his rescue!  With the help of a hobgoblin, the Grace’s not only meet and out smart a troll – they rescue Simon & a griffon!  Great fast paced read + great illustrations.

In Conclusion:

Loved.  I’m a huge fan of all things fae/mystic, and children’s books are no exception. =)  I found this book to be a super fast read with tons of “action” that just kept the pages turning.  Great series and I’m looking forward to book 3.

Mom Notes:

Recommend for grades 3 and up.  The series might be a little scary for younger children.
