Description

The debut title in a new series featuring unseen realms, Norse mythology, and a pair of most unlikely heroes. "What is the Unbelievable FIB?" That's the question eleven-year-old Prudence Potts discovers on a baffling card no one else in Middleton--except ABE, a new kid with a knack for solving riddles--seems to see. Then a mysterious man asks for ABE and Pru's help investigating mythical beings infiltrating the town, and that's just one of the things Pru finds hard to believe. Soon Pru and ABE discover another world beneath the surface of their quiet town, where Viking gods lurk just out of sight. They must race to secure the Eye of Odin, source of all knowledge--and the key to stopping a war that could destroy both human and immortal realms. Author Adam Shaughnessy draws from classic lore to create a new world where uncertainty opens the door to magic and the last thing you should do is believe your own eyes. Fans of Rick Riordan and Diana Wynne Jones will delight in the charming characters, abundant puzzles and plot twists, and sly humor of this first novel in a new series.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jennifer Grace manages Norse mythology, amateur detectives, new friendships, and unbelievable characters in this middle grade debut. Pru seems to be the only one in town who received a strange card with a riddle. Now, with her new friend, ABE, and a mysterious man named Mr. Fox, Pru is using her detective skills to identify the strange beings that are taking over her town and learn why they're after the Eye of Odin. While Grace's narration dusn't offer much differentiation between characters, making it difficult at times to know who's speaking, she excels at pacing this mysterious adventure. Grace also hits all the right marks with emotion and is sure to reel in young listeners. S.B.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
