Two separate but linked adventures introduce Aster, who isn't pleased when her family moves from the city to the mountains. Forced to drop her video games and explore the valley, she literally stumbles upon a magical being known as the Trickster Rapscallion, who offers her three wishes. Of course, the wishes don't go quite as planned, and Aster must scramble to rectify her mistakes and prevent a coming catastrophe. The second adventure sees her contending with the fox spirit of autumn after a magical mishap causes the mountainâand time itselfâto fall out of balance. Fast-paced action and adventure make for a winning combination when joined with Karensac's charming character design and bold pastel colors. As the story expands, so too does its world, as Aster is aided by a series of lovable side characters, including a talking dog, a mysterious old shepherd woman, and a trio of Chestnut Knightsâtiny, cloaked warriors who steal the show. A joyous middle-grade romp for fans of Ben Hatke. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
