Horn Book Review

In Gloamglozer, Quint helps the ruler of Sanctaphrax by undertaking a perilous trip to the core of the floating city where he unwittingly frees a deadly Gloamglozer. In Pirates, Rook makes a dangerous journey to become a librarian knight. In both books, plot development is not the focus, but the details are vivid and the spot art adds mood.
