Praise For…


"A droll addition to the magical school genre, worthy of a seat toward the front of the (Harry) Potter-wagon."

— Kirkus Reviews

"In her debut, Grau introduces a contemporary fantasy world that is a perfect blend of Hogwarts and Monster’s University."

— Taylor Worley, Springfield Public Library, OR

"Runt's hapless attempts to do the right thing make him easily relatable amid themes of conquering self-doubt, wrestling with perfectionism ..., and searching for a place to belong, whether it's with a family bound by blood or one created in a lab."

— Publishers Weekly

"Characters are drawn broadly and deftly in a matter-of-fact way...The loopy cartoonlike illustrations highlight the story perfectly."

— Donna Scanlon

"Grau carefully develops all her characters, and this rich cast helps to establish the setting as much as the descriptions of the school itself....Boarding school fantasy fans will flock to this new series, and it is refreshing to see one that features such a kind, amiable protagonist."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
