Title: The Song of the Quarkbeast
Publication Info: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd (2011)
The second book in the Kazam series returns to Hereford where dictatorial King Snodd IV is looking to corner the market on magic. The only person who can stop him appears to be Jennifer Strange, the orphan teenager who manages employment for a house of sorcerers. In typical Fforde fashion, humorous and quirky events intertwine to bring this story to an entertaining resolution. I look forward to reading more about Jennifer and her companions in future installments.
