"Whimsical, exciting, funny, adventurous--all the things I loved about books growing up."--James Dashner, New York Times-bestselling author of the Maze Runner series

Hudson Brown stopped believing in magic long ago. That is, until the day he is whisked away to the magical land of Logos by a curious compass given to him by his off-beat neighbor, Charlotte.

Hudson discovers that Logos is a land ruled by words, thoughts, and memories. A fairy might ferry you across the river for the price of one memory. But be sure to look out for snarky unicorns, as they will see through those who are not pure of heart.

Not understanding the many rules of Logos, Hudson is quickly saddled with a troll curse. Charlotte, who, along with her father, was banished from Logos, can help get rid of the curse--but only if he agrees to find the lost Princess of Logos in return.

About the Author:

Janette Rallison is the author of many books for young readers, including My Fair Godmother. She also writes YA novels under the pseudonym C. J. Hill. She lives in Chandler, Arizona, with her husband and five children and enough cats to classify her as "an eccentric cat lady."

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—Hudson Brown hasn't believed in magic in a long time. But when his sister Bonnie's cat gets sick, Hudson winds up in a magical world trying to get medicine for it, all thanks to a compass given to him by his kooky neighbor Charlotte. In the magical world called Logos, the rules are determined by words, thoughts, and memories. Visitors can pay a fairy to ferry them across a river by offering up a memory or have a delicious pastry made up of the word friendship. Just watch out—the unicorns help only the ones who are pure of heart. Cursed by trolls, Hudson needs Charlotte's help. The catch is, the only way to get rid of the curse is to find Logos's long-missing princess. Similar in concept to Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth, this title expands upon the idea of a world ruled by wordplay. Logos is intriguing and whimsical. In order to get to the Cliff of Faces for answers, Hudson and Charlotte must choose the right boat: Will "love" get them across, or will the boat marked "strength" get them there? The adventure itself is enjoyable as Hudson and Charlotte work together to find Princess Nomira. The action has moments of intensity, but the heroes are able to get out of their scrapes relatively quickly. Readers will relish figuring out the nuances of Logos along with Hudson. VERDICT A good purchase for readers of lighthearted fantasy adventure books.—Paige Garrison, Augusta Richmond County Library System, GA
