Description

The fantasy adventure trilogy of a young boy's travels through a long-forgotten world where magic still rules.

Young Gregory grows unhappy and restless when his father moves the entire family into an old family home in a new neighborhood. While awake in his bed, a glimmer from the floor attracts Gregory's attention. He discovers a medallion on which there is a drawing of the great church that sits opposite his new residence. Bullied for being new, and ignored at home, Gregory decides to explore the church and the giant stone statue that rests atop of it. During his visit, the medallion begins to shine intensely and, with a flash, Gregory is hurled back to the 17th century, where gargoyles, sorcerers and magical beings live in harmony and magic.

Reviews

"Gregory is full of one-liners and wisecracks, and Etienne and Camboni's cartoons bring a whimsical, cinematic atmosphere to the pages, reflecting the larger-than-life nature of his adventure. Ages 8-14." - Publishers Weekly

"Featuring animated, colorful illustrations and an action-packed story line this is an enjoyable, appealing romp. VERDICT Recommended for fans of magic and adventure." - Library Journal

"This is a joyous read and another home run for this growing kids' line from Humanoids. And I'm not even the intended demographic. A great read for kids of all ages and a fun fantasy world to fall into." - COMICON.CON
