Starred Review * Best Books for Kids and Teens: Spring Edition 2013 * The Gargoyle at the Gates, an interesting and appealing story, is a splendid sequel to the first two Lost Gargoyle books. * Canadian Materials * I would recommend this book to young independent readers with an interest in gargoyles, magic, and adventure fiction. The inclusion of Toronto history and landmarks are an added bonus to a great read. * Resource Links (NL) * ...charming and amusing... * The KW Record *
