When the quill writes GO GO GO frantically on the wall, and the House of the Ancient Crones heaves Gracie Gillypot outside onto the path, it can mean only one thing: there’s Trouble in the Five Kingdoms. This time it’s in the form of a beady-eyed, green-tongued witch named Truda Hangnail, who with her banished Deep Magic has vowed to succeed Queen Bluebell on the throne. Now that her horrible spell has shrunk the good witches of Wadington to the size of, well, rats, can anything stop her? Will the strengths, smarts, and charms of a spunky trueheart, a sweet-natured orphan, a scruffy prince, a substantial troll, and two squabbling bats be enough to foil her insidious plot?

“Readers won’t be disappointed by this fractured fairy-tale follow-up.” —Booklist

“Fans…will be much amused by the dashing about, the quick brushes with danger, and the undercurrents of budding romance.” —Kirkus Reviews

    " This one was just as silly and fun as the first book "The Robe of Skulls". Cant wait to read the third book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy | 9/27/2013

    " A brilliant follow up to 'The Robe of Skulls', I am eager to see how Gracie Gillypot's journey continues through the next three books surrounding the Five Kingdoms! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa | 6/2/2013

    " It was a great book. There is a evil witch. She wants to be queen. She even gathered an army of rats if they don't make queen. I suggest you read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaitlin | 5/2/2013

    " Such a fun cute and and adorable read. :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jasmine | 2/22/2013

    " I am already bothered by the fact that this book shares a similar title with a King novel, so far not as funny or involved at the first installment in this series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare Tissiman connolly | 10/18/2012

    " Very enjoyable trip into a world where dreams come true good people win and are friends with helpful rats and bats that have silly names - back to reality now well closer maybe... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keli | 9/12/2012

    " I do like this series. And now there's the beginnings of romance as the two main characters are starting to age. It's not as compelling as some J and YA series that I've read. But it's fun and I'll read the next one and, probably, any others that come after that. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Winter Ashurst | 6/6/2012

    " Only read the first 2 chapters. I just didn't get what they were saying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Yardley | 5/24/2012

    " This book is fun. There are some convenient magic scenes, which detract from it, but on the whole it's pace and liveliness makes it a damn good read. The use of animal characters is excellent. Kids will have fun with this book. "
