★ “Whimsically creepy, The Curse of Eelgrass Bog straddles the line between slimy and sweet, concocting a fantasy world that balances snarky demons, magical bogs, concerned witches and awe-inspiring serpents.” BookPage, starred review

“Averling’s worldbuilding is deft and beguiling, and Kess’ voice is a delight. Shining brightest is her endearing relationship with Shrunken Jim—an excellent supporting character for all that he’s brined. A deliciously offbeat magical adventure.” Kirkus Reviews

“A fetching, heart-stopping read with quirky characters, over-the-top ­depictions, a sinister setting, and the deep roots of family love.” School Library Journal

“[An] engrossing mystery…debut author Averling laces the overall setting with beguiling magical elements that make for an inventive adventure.” PW Reviews

“Readers will enjoy excavating layers of history in this marvelous mystery with heaps of magic and heart.” Booklist

“The perfect combination of eccentric and eerie, this builds an immersive, thrilling setting…with a voice that is as bold as it is vulnerable, as authentic as it is sassy.” —BCCB

“Deliciously creepy and full of fabulous characters and eerie wonder.” —Stephanie Burgis, author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart and The Raven Heir

“A bewitching tale of unnatural magic, The Curse of Eelgrass Bog delights and mystifies, teeming with curses and crawlies, cobwebs and bog bones, and the butterflies-in-your-belly wonder of being seen the way you want to be seen. I’m cursed—most marvelously—to never love another book so much as I love this one.” —Heather Kassner, author of The Bone Garden

“Equal parts creepy and magical, The Curse of Eelgrass Bog is a surreal blend of magic and mystery that will leave you feeling as though you’ve stumbled across an undiscovered world of your own. It had me from page one!” —Kalyn Josephson, acclaimed author of the Ravenfall series

The Curse of Eelgrass Bog is filled with magic, mystery, bravery, and so much heart. I loved it!” —Lindsay Currie, author of Scritch Scratch and The Girl in White

The Curse of Eelgrass Bog is a wonder-filled tale that’s at once creepy, twisty, and incredibly full of love. This is a keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat adventure that will also open your heart. I highly recommend this fantastic tale!” —Alysa Wishingrad, author of The Verdigris Pawn
