"Mary Poppins meets the Addams Family in a nonstop farce.” — Kirkus Reviews, Starred
“Filled to bursting with an eccentric cast of characters, this extravagant tale combines magic, mafiaesque villainy, mythical beasts, foible-filled humans, and humor into a mixture that will appeal to fans of Diana Wynne Jones, J. K. Rowling and even Lemony Snicket. . . . Pure dead fun.” — School Library Journal
“Should Lemony Snicket grow a bit stale, here’s the perfect antidote.” — Kirkus Reviews, Starred
