Told in diary entries and other “documents,” this magical, modern-day comedy by the master of funny fantasy Bruce Coville is a story filled with laugh-out-loud humor and heart.

Angus is a brownie. No, not the kind you eat! He’s a tiny magical creature that loves to do chores. Angus has just “inherited” a new human girl, Alex. To say that Alex is messy would be an understatement. She’s a total hurricane-like disaster—and she likes it that way, thank you very much! Living with each other isn’t easy, but Angus and Alex soon learn there is a curse that binds them. What’s worse, it threatens Alex’s family. Working together, Angus and Alex set out to break the curse … hopefully without killing each other first.

  • A knee-slapper. Kirkus Reviews
  • * "It’s not easy to merge such disparate elements as traditional Scottish lore and modern American life, but Coville brings it off with wit, style, and respect. The first volume of the Enchanted Files series is smart, amusing, and a lot of fun Booklist (starred review)
  • “A knee-slapper.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “It’s not easy to merge such disparate elements as traditional Scottish lore and modern American life, but Coville brings it off with wit, style, and respect. The first volume of the Enchanted Files series is smart, amusing, and a lot of fun.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “This story is a delightful romp…Euan Morton, as the kind but fiery-tempered brownie, steals the show with his heavy Scots brogue and animated dialogue. Morton’s comic timing is perfect for Angus’ wry observations of his new life in the relatively unenchanted United States. Angus must work to break the curse with help of a brownie’s worst nightmare—a slovenly girl named Alex, voiced by perky thirteen-year-old Nancy O’Connor. The diary entries of Alex and Angus comprise most of the book. Other cast members fill in as family, friends, and teachers, delivering dialogue or supplementary letters and messages. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “A humorous, quick-paced, and engaging tale. Human and magical characters are likable with characteristics that readers will recognize. Verdict: This is a fresh and fast tale that is sure to elevate the standing of brownies, goblins, and other magical beings.”
