Booklist Review

Anastasia McCrumpet and her three friends (collectively known as the League of Beastly Dreadfuls) still live underground in Nowhere Special and continue their hunt for Anastasia's missing father and great-grandfather. At the end of The Dastardly Deed (2016), they had found Calixto Swift's silver hammer in his secret study. Now, as the league uncovers more clues, Anastasia pilfers Calixto's journals, uncovers his riddle, and learns how Calixto traveled through time to faraway places. Meanwhile, strange events are occurring in Nowhere Special, creating a heightened fear of witches in the community. Grant's rich language, playful use of humor, and calamities again have a spellbinding effect, and readers will be glued to the page as the characters blunder their way from one incident to the next. Portillo's detailed black-and-white drawings enliven this third installment of the league's adventures, priming readers' curiosity for their continued escapades, and the cliffhanger ending will further stoke readers' anticipation. Is the league really getting closer to finding Anastasia's father?--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2017 Booklist
