Get ready for more magic, mayhem, and monstruos! From Claribel A. Ortega, author of Frizzy and Ghost Squad, comes the sequel to the instant New York Times bestselling and #1 Indie bestselling Witchlings.

Every four years, the Twelve Towns gather for a legendary magical tournament–the Golden Frog Games.

With Ravenskill hosting this year’s games, all eyes are on Seven Salazar, Valley Pepperhorn and Thorn Laroux: the most famous Spares in the Twelve Towns. Thorn is ready to compete as a fashion champion, but when a forbidden hex is used to turn her fellow champions to stone, suspicion lands on the Witchlings.

As the Witchlings attempt to unravel the mystery of the stonifications, future Uncle Seven is harboring a dangerous secret: While she’s supposed to be able to communicate with animals, the voices she hears most clearly belong to monstruos, and one spine-chilling voice is the loudest of all.

Can Seven fix her broken magic and find out who is stonifying the champions . . . before Thorn becomes the next victim?

Review for The Golden Frog Games

Here we are back in Ravenskill for more of this fantastic series. I do recommend reading book one before diving in. Middle graders will love this magical competition where our character’s wands are pointing at the power to help others instead of doing harm. Just like before, this is a fast read that will keep you guessing and cheering all the way to the end. Speaking of the end… this book ends on a cliffhanger. Though I’m not fond of them, I realize it means there’s another book coming! Hopefully soon!
