Product Details


★  “Zahler’s immersive folktale narrative has just the right amount of spookiness and suspense for middle grade readers. Lizzie is a heroine whom readers will root for, and her sisterly bond with Minka is refreshing. Kids will want to enjoy this in one sitting.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“[A] folklore-based fantasy . . . rooted in the bond between sisters. . . . Elements of horror build to an extended climax teeming with fiends. . . .”—Publishers Weekly

“This broadly appealing, straightforward story reads like a folktale with its spooky, fantasy elements and uncomplicated, yet satisfying, good-overcomes-evil plot. . . . Sisterly love triumphs in this endearing, somewhat spooky tale.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The well-rounded and appealing characters in this absorbing tale nicely ground the fantasy elements.”Booklist
★ “Diane Zahler (Baker’s Magic) spins a terrifically timeless upper-middle-grade story of sisterly love, goblin magic and overstepped boundaries. . . . [Her] lush language describes a fully realized fairy tale world. . . . Share this book with anyone who loves their stories located in far-off lands potentially inhabited by monsters.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“Zahler creates a historical-feeling world. . . . The sisters’ relationship anchors the plot and resonates with emotion. . . .”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“This warmly reassuring tale, with its nontraditional protagonist, will keep readers engrossed from beginning to end.”—The Horn Book
