Alfred Kropp returns in another page-turning, car-chasing, world-saving adventure! The ancient seals of Solomon―used by Kind Solomon to imprison the fallen angels of heaven―have disappeared. Should they fall in to the wrong hands, all hell could break lose . . . literally. And when Alfred Kropp goofs up as usual, the ring ends up in the hands of King Paimon, a terrible demon with a special bone to pick with our reluctant hero. Alfred must find a way to right his wrong and save the world from imminent destruction . . . again! Jam packed with boy-centric action, this series is perfect for reluctant readers who are increasingly discovering this one-of-a-kind hero.

Review:

“*Starred Review* A great book for boys, as well as reluctant readers, The Seal of Solomon tells a rip-roaring story that teens will love and won't be able to put down.” ―School Library Journal

“The emotional core of this novel involves likeable Alfred's unresolved issues about the death of his mother at age 12, and his sense of loss is palpably heartbreaking. The villain Arnold's issues remain far murkier, his motivation subsumed by the same Hollywood action-flick pyrotechnics--explosive showdowns, multiple near-brushes with death--that made the first book a hit with kids who might otherwise be playing video games.” ―Publishers Weekly

“...[B]oys will not be disappointed with the gruesome consequences for those who look into the demon's eyes. The world's fastest car, huge CW3XD guns that use bullets laced with Alfred's blood and a death-defying sky dive are only a few of the other action magnets sure to attract middle-school readers. Fans of the first episode, The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp (2005), will not be disappointed.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Readers won't have to have read the first title to enjoy this over-the-top adventure fantasy. Yancey manages a balancing act, blending action-packed scenes with tongue-in-cheek humor and occasional heart-on-sleeve sincerity.” ―Booklist

“The cinematic, or rather videogame, quality to Alfred's exploits will appeal to visual learners who can fill in the pictures themselves.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“This story of a ‘big-headed loser' is as funny as it is scary.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred reviews on The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

“Yancey has hit one out of the park.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review on The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

“With bumbling, lumbering, wisecracking Alfred Kropp by our side, there's never a dull moment on this bumpy ride that proves just how extraordinary ‘ordinary' can be.” ―Teenreads.com on The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

“One of those unforgettable tales . . . that stays with you long after you are drained breathless by a captivating read.” ―Ridley Pearson, best-selling author on The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

“I read as I used to when I was a kid, totally engrossed and utterly unwilling to leave the world of the story. I want more!” ―Bruce Coville, best-selling author on The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp
