Editorial Reviews

Review

“A satisfying tale for skeptical tweens, who will eagerly await Poppy’s further adventures.” (ALA Booklist)

“Two worlds collide in this jaunty and easily digestible story of magic and domestic mayhem.” (The Horn Book)

Praise for The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney: “An unexpectedly poignant meditation on loss in a quick-moving plot about ghosts and the spiritual mediums who communicate with them.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Praise for The Juliet Club: “As frothy as the foam on a cup of cappuccino, this is a perfect summer read for girls with a touch of romance in their hearts.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Plenty of drama—on- and off-stage—will keep readers in their seats.” (Publishers Weekly)

THE UNSEEN WORLD OF POPPY MALONE: A GAGGLE OF GOBLINS is an enchanting adventure of a young girl who sees a goblin in her attic. It would be different if her mom or dad saw it; they study the paranormal, so they're always looking for UFOs, chasing monsters and seeking out vampires. Poppy's family moves to Austin, Texas, because her parents feel there is a lot of paranormal activity there.

Immediately upon settling into their new house, Poppy's mom concludes that a dark presence lurks there. All the suspicious accidents that happen --- a bag of flour toppling down on her sister, Franny, or Mrs. Malone tripping over the garden hoe --- point to a sinister explanation. Poppy needs to take a break from her parents, so she goes up to the attic where, to her surprise, she spots a goblin. Naturally, she tries to chase after it. As they sprint out of the house, the goblin screeches to a halt when it sees her youngest brother, Rolly, painting the window screen with peanut butter. The goblin stands perfectly still in the garden, impressed by Rolly's mischievous behavior. But when Poppy attempts to grab the creature, it makes a clean getaway.

Poppy sees herself as a scientist, so she sets about recording her observations and setting up a motion-sensor camera to capture the goblin on film. She knows that paranormal work can be dismissed easily; it happens to her parents all the time, whether it's a sighting of UFOs or zombies setting a farmer's cows loose at night. A scientist's theory must have proof to support it, or else it'll go up in smoke.

One day Poppy notices that Rolly is acting strangely. For starters he uses good manners, eats all of his food without complaint, and goes to bed when his mom and dad ask him. It turns out that his body has been taken over by a changeling.

Format: Hardcover
My 1st grade daughter picked this book off of our shelf to be our next bedtime reading story. Throughout the first few chapters there were some minor elements within the writing that were distracting but not anything that really broke the book. These included long sections written within parenthesis, and overly elaborate explanation of each object found in a room, and general errors such as duplicate words and missing prepositions. Also, the family can be pretty mean to each other, with the dad perhaps doing the most damage as he negatively describes the traits of his youngest son. The book has a fun premis and the author seemed to have a lot of personal interst in the topics presented which adds to the flavor of the story but it was still a little difficult to really enjoy it. None of these slight annoyances elicited this negative review though. What pushed me over the edge was the brief conversations the children had about the tooth fairy not being real or reindeers on rooftops being unbelievable. As a parent of three young children who still believe in the wonderful, magical elements of the holidays, it was annoying to have this pop up in a child friendly book. It wasn't the typical discussion we'd find in our books where an older kid was disbelieving with the younger kids arguing against it, it was just stated as plain fact. Our family loves reading together and have often found the greatest gems in the most random of books but Poppy Malone ended up in the donation box to find another home.
