Introducing the second book in the Enchanted Files! Told in diary entries and more, it’s a new magical, modern-day comedy series by the master of funny fantasy and bestselling author of My Teacher Is an Alien, Bruce Coville!

Meet Gerald. Gerald is a griffin—a creature with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle. According to the Code of the Griffins, that means he should be:

1. Brave and fierce in all situations!
2. A guardian of a great treasure!
3. Completely and totally hidden from the human realm!

But what if a Griffin isn’t brave or fierce? What if he’s never found a great treasure (or any treasure for that matter)? What if he feels like such an embarrassment that the only thing left to do is run away? And what if the only place no one will look for him is … the human world?

This laugh-out-loud adventure, full of humor and heart, is ideal for fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library or Chris Grabenstein.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An anxious poetry-writing griffin named Gerald and his human friend, Brad, record their hilarious adventures in diary format, with a full cast ably voicing the many characters. While their adventures contain serious themes of bullying and finding one’s way in the world, humor and expert narration keep those weighty issues light and entertaining.”

    ReadBrightly (An Ultimate Audiobook Pick for Summer 2017)

  • “Coville brings his signature wit and humor to this fantasy story. This second installment adds authentic and engaging, multidimensional characters to a strong series that finds heroes in outcasts.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A full cast, including the author and audio luminaries such as Jayne Entwistle, Kirby Heyborne, Scott Brick, Paul Boehmer, and Arthur Morey, joins narrators Matthew Frow and Jeremy Gumbs, enlarging the humor in this story. The featured character is a poetry-writing griffin named Gerald, whose anxiety often gets the better of him. The story is told by Gerald and his human friend, Brad, mostly in diary format. The variety of voices helps listeners identify each of the many characters. Themes of bullying and finding one’s place in the world are common threads in Coville’s writing, and the narrators do a good job keeping these weighty issues light and entertaining while driving home the need for kindness and compassion.”
