- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 November 2000
Gr. 6-9. It all started when Gog ventured into a dangerous, haunted alley and ripped off a poster of his favorite rock group, Boots and the Seven Leaguers. He knew he was taking a terrible risk, messing around with magic, trying to finagle a ticket to the big concert at Rhymer's Bridge, even making a deal with a greenkid. But what do you expect from an adolescent troll? The bumbling Gog and his mischievous pal, Pooka, desperate to get to the concert, manage to get jobs as roadies for the band, only to discover after a hard day's work that tagalong Magog, Gog's smart-aleck little brother, has been kidnapped. It's a case of blood being thicker than magic. Can a quest be far behind? Yolen manages to work in a lot of unobtrusive-but-authentic faery lore in this lighthearted, humorous fantasy narrated by the troll next door. Give this to readers who enjoy Diana Wynne Jones and Patricia Wrede. --Jean Franklin Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
