Praise For The Magnificent 12

“Grant’s talent for quick dialogue and vivid descriptions still shines and will have fans eager for book three.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Mack has but 35 more days to find 11 other preteens who...can together prevent the world-destroying Pale Queen from escaping 3,000 years of imprisonment... in this above-average, distinctly nonserious quest fantasy.”
-ALA Booklist

“Well-written and hilarious...The action moves at a breakneck pace but never seems rushed. The characters are consistently entertaining and engaging. Grant knows when to dial down the humor and let the gravity of the plot take center stage.”
-School Library Journal
