Read the fourth book in the New York Times Bestselling series about magic, mayhem, and witchery! Budding witch Courtney Crumrin could use a break from Hillsborough's stifling magical society, and her uncle Aloysius has just the ticket—a relaxing trip across Europe. However, Courtney quickly learns that the forests of Romania and the streets of old Germany are teeming with magic, and she can't help wanting to learn more. Of course Uncle A tells her to mind her own business, but Courtney's never played by the rules, and neither, it seems, do the people she meets on her journey. But the most important lesson Courtney will learn is that love, trust, and loyalty are their own kind of magic—and they're more powerful than anything Courtney's seen yet.
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.
