* "Fifth-grader Rupert Campbell lives in a world that combines Roald Dahl's Witches and Louis Sachar's Wayside School. Readers will banish themselves from the ordinary world to finish this book in a flash." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "A fun, frothy story that will, well, charm its readers."--Publishers Weekly "Ideal for middle-grade readers who love Roald Dahl's Matilda and enjoy humor with their fantasy, this debut novel is madcap and fantastical. It's the perfect thing for kids not quite ready for Diane Duane or Madeleine L'Engle." --Booklist "Eva Ibbotson fans will appreciate the quirky humor." --BCCB "A hilarious, light-hearted debut!" --Library Media Connection
