Shade’s back and more dreadful than ever!

The magical Grand Library of Elfame is in danger! The fearsome bugbear Drabbery, Grand Scrutinizer of the Ministry of Ordinariness, Averageness, and Normalcy (or M.O.A.N.), wants to remove books he deems “damaging,” and even threatens to close the library altogether.

Shade the sprite may not be your average fairy—but she’s a champion librarian and bibliophile who won’t let M.O.A.N.’s censorship and suspicion ruin her dream of instilling a love of books into the community of Elfame. With her friends the fast-talking Ginch and the silent but resourceful Professor, she sets out in search of help from a secret society charged with saving rare books.

This dreadful twist on the fairy tales and fantasy tropes you know and love continues Shade’s award-winning adventures found in A Dreadful Fairy Book.

Praise for Those Dreadful Fairy Books:

This chubby brown protagonist full of flaws and wit and heart is quite welcome. For bibliophiles (and bibliothecaphiles) and all those who step expectantly into mushroom rings.
— Kirkus Reviews

About Jon Etter

The author of such dreadful tales as A Dreadful Fairy Book and Another Dreadful Fairy Book, Mr. Jon Etter grew up in his local library in Forrest, Illinois (population 1,200 and some dogs) and eventually migrated north to Wisconsin, where he has taught high school English for the past twenty years.

He’s loved every minute of working on Those Dreadful Fairy Books that wasn’t spent with Quentin Q. Quacksworth, whom Jon describes as “the opposite of fun,” although he does enjoy how annoyed Quacksworth gets when referred to as “Triple Q” or “Q Cubed.”
