Reviews

THE WELLS BEQUEST: * "A clever, sparky adventure made of science fiction, philosophy and humor." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review THE GRIMM LEGACY --School Library Journal Best Book --Bank Street Best Book --Tennessee Volunteer State Book Award Master List --Texas Lonestar Reading List --Georgia Book Award --Green Mountain Book Award Master List --Keystone State Reading Association Young Adult Book Award --Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL) Reader Awards Final Nominee List, Truman Awards Praise for The Grimm Legacy * "This modern fantasy has intrigue, adventure, and romance, and the magical aspects of the tale are both clever and intricately woven, from rhyming charms to flying-carpet rides. . . . Shulman's prose is fast paced, filled with humor, and peopled with characters who are either true to life or delightfully bizarre. Fans of fairy tales in general and Grimm stories in particular will delight in the author's frequent literary references, and fantasy lovers will feel very much at home in this tale that pulls out all the stops."--School Library Journal, starred review "Captivating magic fills the pages of this exciting new novel. . . . Action fans will find plenty of heart-pounding, fantastical escapades as the novel builds to its satisfying, romantic conclusion. A richly imagined adventure with easy appeal for Harry Potter fans."--Booklist
