"A great book for boys, as well as reluctant readers . . . teens will love and won't be able to put down." --School Library Journal on ALFRED KROPP AND THE SEAL OF SOLOMON"Like J. K Rowling, first time YA novelist Yancey deftly leavens the heavier plot elements with humor; this story of a big-headed loser is as funny as it is scary." --Publishers Weekly"Yancey has hit one out of the park with this original, engaging, sequel-worthy read." --Kirkus Reviews
