Laugh-out-loud, smart, creative, action-packed, middle-grade adventure!
Emily and the Spellstone claims to be a middle grade novel, but there is wit enough to capture and captivate an older audience as well.
I read this with my 10-year-old daughter and we were constantly rolling over laughing like crazy! Throughout the day we would quote both Emily and Gorgo — each clever in his/her own right. Emily’s matter-of-fact, reluctant to become involved in any kind of adventure, slightly sarcastic, slightly critical, slightly negative, but ready-to-step-up-when-needed personality combined with Gorgo’s bubbly, entertaining, over-the-top hilarious, morally dubious, but inherently helpful personality (or do you say demon-ality?) bring to life a wonderful, creative, witty, entertaining, original adventure!
I received a copy of this book from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children’s Book Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
