This book is amazing! When I first started reading it, I felt as if it would be a light-hearted and funny book! Boy, was I proven wrong! This book started out funny and amusing, but as the story got farther in, it started having morals. This story teaches you the worth of friendship. Angus Cairns, a brownie (a creature that likes to secretly clean things from the Enchanted Realm), is attached to the McGonagall family (I know,Harry Potter). It is his duty to serve the McGonagall family because of his father, who made the Queen of Shadows mad at him. At the beginning of the book, Angus serves an old lady called Sarah who lives in Scotland. Angus loves her dearly. Soon though, she dies. She tells Angus to go to the youngest female relative who is of 10 years or older. This happens to be a girl called Alex Carhart who lives in America. Angus is very doubtful about going to America, but as he is bound to her, he goes. When he gets there he finds that she is a very, very messy human being. At first, the 2 fight a lot, but soon they become the best of friends. Soon though, Alex's brother and dad start acting weird. They start writing poems, and bad ones at that. Alex's dad quits his job to write and her brother quits the soccer team to write. Angus is very ashamed, because he knows why this is happening, but doesn't want to tell Alex because she will get mad at him. He ends up telling her anyways. Alex finds out that he brought a curse along with him that Ewan McGonagall, Alex's ancestor, brought upon. Ewan McGonagall had the most fantastic voice and one day, he travels to the Enchanted Realm and sings for the Shadow Queen. While he is there, he falls in love with the queen's daughter, the Princess of Sunshine. The queen said that in order for the princess to marry him, he had to give up his amazing voice. He does it and they get married. The curse makes all of his relatives have a bad voice too and makes them write horrible poetry too. So Alex and Angus go on an adventure to return the Princess of Sunshine to the queen to get rid of the curse. Read the rest of the book to find out more! I definitely recommend it!
