Malamander is the kind of book I dreamed about as a kid: a magical blend of oddball folklore and humor about two peculiar and plucky kids who puzzle out some local secrets in a town that is a character in its own right. . . .This book is so much fun, I’m already dreaming of my next visit to Eerie-on-Sea.”  — Kate Milford, best-selling author of the Greenglass House series


“Fantastical storytelling at its best.” – M. G. Leonard, award-winning author of Beetle Boy


“Filled with humor, adventure, and wonderful strangeness, this book is a treat.” — Anne Ursu, author of The Lost Girl
