About the Author

George Hagen is the author of two novels for adults. The Laments--a Washington Post bestseller and recipient of the William Saroyan International Prize for writing--has been compared to the work of John Irving and Ann Tyler and described by Publishers Weekly as "a funny, touching novel about the meaning of family." Tom Bedlam was called "a Victorian three-decker novel [that] shines with contemporary clarity and moves at the speed of 'The Sopranos'" by the Los Angeles Times. Hagen had lived on three continents by the time he was twelve. The father of three children, he now lives in Brooklyn. This is his first book for kids.

"A first-rate fantasy for middle-grade readers. Like Harry Potter, ... Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series, ... and Trenton Lee Stewart's Mysterious Benedict Society books." --Booklist, Starred

"A great read for fantasy lovers who have worn out their copies of Harry Potter." --School Library Journal, Starred

"...brimful of antic energy and inventive flair, like the best middle-grade fantasies; readers, like baby birds, will devour it and clamor for future installments." --Kirkus Reviews

"Adult author Hagen (The Laments) makes his children's debut with a fantasy adventure touched with whimsy, satire, and the quirky love of urban fauna that characterizes New Yorkers." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Both startling and moving--a vivid, compelling fantasy that sends you off to a world you will not soon forget." --Norton Juster, author of The Phantom Tollbooth
