Guys, this is my first ever blog tour and I am uber pumped about it. Why? Not only are blog tours super fun, but this is also for a middle-grade novel and WHO DOESN’T LOVE MIDDLE GRADE? (Seriously, middle-grade is the best.)
Let’s dive a little deeper shall we . . .
Balthazar Fabuloso’s lovable and eccentric family performs a magic show. What makes the act so unusual is that all the Fabulosos actually have superhuman powers, except for Balthazar, a practical-minded 11-year-old who simply aspires to be a normal kid. So when everyone but Balthazar disappears mid performance, the only Fabuloso without real magical skills must save the family. Balthazar wonders if the family’s archrivals, the Furious Fistulas, are to blame or if there are other, even darker forces at work. To free his loved ones Balthazar must work with some questionable characters, including a lunatic long-lost uncle, three enigmatic senior citizens and the loathsome Pagan Fistula, whose family also mysteriously goes missing.
At the center of these disappearances is a force so evil that the world’s most preeminent magicians cower before it. What hope could a ragtag crew of misfits have against it?
This is the type of book I would have loved as a kid and one that I still can appreciate as an adult. I.J. Brindle brings adventure to life in such a fun way with her unique and very humorous characters. Not only does the mystery leave you with an intrigue, but it reminds you of those whodunits that you sped-read through as a kid.
For lovers of magical adventures and eccentric characters, this one is for you!
