Overview

Courtney Crumrin's magical education has begun in full under the tutelage of Calpurnia Crisp. But Courtney isn't her only pupil, and she quickly realizes her classmates don't know nearly as much about the dangers of magic as she does. When they turn the youngest student into a night creature, Courtney reluctantly agrees to help—and immediately regrets it when the students storm the Twilight Kingdom with disastrous results. But Courtney's got bigger problems to deal with—a man named Templeton, who suspects Courtney's involvement in the death of a certain warlock. Can Courtney save a bunch of arrogant kids while evading the lawkeeper? Maybe if they were in the human world. But as Courtney knows, the Twilight Kingdom is as unpredictable as it is dangerous—and it can quickly turn deadly.

About the Author

Ted Naifeh first appeared in the independent comics scene in 1999 as the artist for Gloomcookie, the goth romance comic he co-created with Serena Valentino for SLG Publishing. After a successful run, Ted decided to strike out on his own, writing and drawing Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things, a spooky children’s fantasy series about a grumpy little girl and her adventures with her Warlock uncle. Nominated for an Eisner Award for best limited series, Courtney Crumrin’s success paved the way for Polly and the Pirates, another children’s book, this time about a prim and proper girl kidnapped by pirates convinced she was the daughter of their long-lost queen. Over the next few years, Ted wrote four volumes of Courtney Crumrin, plus a spin off book about her uncle. He also co-created How Loathsome with Tristan Crane, and illustrated two volumes of the videogame tie-in comic Death Junior with screenwriter Gary Whitta. More recently, he illustrated The Good Neighbors, a three volume graphic novel series written by New York Times best-selling author Holly Black, published by Scholastic. In 2011, Ted wrote the sequel to Polly and the Pirates, and illustrated several Batman short stories for DC Comics. In 2012, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Courtney Crumrin, he wrote and illustrated the final two volumes of the series. Currently, you can find Ted everywhere: from the pages of Batman ‘66 to his newest original series for adults, Night’s Dominion. Ted lives in San Francisco, because he likes dreary weather.

I'm sad to see that this is the last in the series (as far as I can see). Really cute and funny and really just everything I like in a darker graphic novel.

This is the third book in the Courtney Crumrin series; I believe there are four books in this series with the fourth book titled, Courtney Crumrin's Monstrous Holiday. It was a fun read but I didn't like it quite as much as the previous two books.Courtney has switched schools again; she is in the Coven's special school for magical studies. Courtney takes a trip back to her old home to hang with an old friend. Then she helps her fellow classmates journey into the Twilight Kingdom to fix a problem they create when a magic spell goes wrong.The first chapter was all about Courtney going back home so that her parents can sell their old house. She hangs out with an old friend who has changed for the worse. I didn't enjoy the first chapter as much because it didn't really have anything magical or mystical. It basically just gave a little back story on Courtney and solidified the fact that her parents are losers.The remaining chapters were much more interesting. Courtney and her classmates journey through the Goblin market and the Twilight Kingdom. Her classmates get into trouble and she helps get them out of trouble. It was interesting, fun to read about, and action packed.The illustration matches the mood of the story well. The pictures are easy to follow and add a lot to the story; it is easy to tell the characters moods by their expressions.The story is wrapped up nicely and things are set up for Courtney's monstrous holiday with her uncle.Overall I really enjoyed this installment in the Courtney Crumrin series. I was a bit confused about what relevance the first chapter had and didn't enjoy it as much as the rest of the book. I highly recommend this series for fans of fantasy graphic novels. This graphic novel is appropriate for middle grade and older.

We're given one brief page to refresh our memory of the big picture from the last volume then Courtney's ambivalent parents are back in play as they go back to the city to finally sell their old condo. Courtney tries to reconnect with an old friend and finds they've both changed. When she returns she has to spend summer vacation at a summer school for other children of witches/warlocks and she doesn't get along with those kids any better than the ones at school, but when one of them, a show off, turns his little brother into a night thing they come to Courtney for help and off they go to Goblin Town in search of the Orchards of the Twilight King for a reverse spell. But all along Courtney has a stalker on her trail. The excitement level is high in this volume. A whole new cast of characters are put into play with the summer school group and a few people/creatures from previous books make an appearance as well, while Uncle Aloysius stays in the background this volume. The story lines are intricate and detailed, plenty of mini story arcs with a plethora of eccentric characters. I love Courtney's attitude and loyalty and am anxious to read Vol. four.

I think this is becoming one of my favorites at the moment. I like the tone the series has been going so far. Courtney is also becoming one of my favorite characters. The art is especially good in this one. Well, all the volumes so far.
