Reviews

Praise for Kingston and the Magician's Lost and Found

"A fast-paced, magical read set in an accessible, vibrant world where Black magicians and a mainly Black cast take center stage." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Intricately crafted twists at every turn keep the determined crew on their toes. The action is well paced, giving readers time to savor the myriad colorful characters who interact with the clue chasers. . . An enjoyable addition to most middle school mystery collections." --School Library Journal "Full of heart, magic, and mystery, this is the kind of book that makes you love books. Absolutely fantastic!" --Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of Catalyst Coded messages, characters who plainly know more than they're saying, doppelgangers, and secret schemes...all come together in a...breathlessly paced tale...should leave readers even more delighted that the stage is set for sequels. --Booklist "Inventive, authentic, and razor-sharp, Kingston and the Magician's Lost and Found is at once an exhilarating fantasy and a moving tale of how far a father and son are willing to go for one another. Rucker Moses and Theo Gangi put aside familiar tropes to build something new, an underground New York City, filled with magic and secrets, that challenges readers to solve its mysteries alongside its main character. As for Kingston, we've never seen anything like him--a young Black superhero determined to put the magic back in Brooklyn. He's sharp, feisty, funny, and always a step ahead. This is a special book, the kind that you fall in love with, because beneath the fun and twists, shining through is Kingston's big, bold heart." --Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil series This brisk, first-person narrative will appeal especially to readers who like puzzles and illusions... engaging plot and history of Black magician....A likable, otherworldly adventure with a bit of a mystery. --Kirkus Reviews "The text is zippy and animated, reading more like a screenplay than a novel, and the secondary characters are splashy . . . Kingston is a carefully balanced mix of optimistic, jaded, and grief-stricken, moving through the world with more hope than the grownups who surround him." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
