Picking up shortly after the first book leaves off, the kids encounter goblins, a troll and a griffin. It stands alone better than the first book, but hints at bigger and darker mysteries still awaiting the three children. While lacking the ominous undertones of books like Boston’s Green Knowe books or the quirky charm of E. Nesbit’s Five Children and It, this book has more adventure and is a fun read.
