After encountering brownies, goblins (both hob- and regular), griffins, sprites, and elves in previous volumes, the Grace children are now ready to take on new fantastical creatures: dwarves, ogres, and mechanical dogs. Jared's disciplinary difficulties increase exponentially when he is caught pulling a (pocket)knife on a younger student, Mallory goes missing, and a sneaky shapeshifter temporarily tranforms the Grace twins into triplets. The "big bad" gets bigger and badder, and the Grace children decide that some adult involvement may be required. Mark Hamill continues his excellent narration, and I continue to be entertained.
