Product description

Fans of the 39 Clues books will love The Key, the third entry in Michael Grant's middle-grade Magnificent 12 series. Full of adventure and wackiness, the Magnificent 12 books are also perfect for readers of funny, action-filled series like Dan Gutman's Genius Files. With 21 phobias, Mack MacAvoy is more of a wimpy kid than a hero, but he is on a quest to defeat the wicked--and crazy, and mean, and dangerous--Pale Queen before her three-thousand-year banishment ends. In The Key, Mack must find more of the Magnificent 12, the twelve twelve-year-olds fated to stop the queen from destroying the world, and assemble a key--a cheat sheet, really--to a magical language. Along the way, he'll transform the Loch Ness monster into a gigantic duck, and transport the Eiffel Tower across the River Seine. The Key is another fast-paced episode in Michael Grant's bestselling and hysterical fantasy adventure series.

Review quote

"This third installment in the Magnificent 12 series speeds forward with the help of over-the-top action sequences and rapid, clever dialogue. Action, adventure, fantasy, humor and a glimpse of a potential budding romance are all here, making this a great end-of-summer read."--Kirkus Reviews

Back cover copy

The Key is the key!Time is short for Mack MacAvoy and the Magnifica! The only way to defeat the Pale Queen and her evil daughter, Risky, is to learn the magical language of Vargran. If only ancient, magical languages came with cheat sheets . . .. . . Oh! But they do! (Or at least, this one does. We can't speak for any other ancient, magical languages.)Mack, Jarrah, Xiao, Dietmar, and Stefan travel to Europe to find the Key, an engraved stone that unlocks the power of Vargran. But can they locate the invisible castle of William "Blisterthong" MacGuffin, who guards the Key? And will the Key be enough? Or is there something else Mack must find in order to save the world?The Magnificent 12: The Key is another fast-paced episode in bestselling Michael Grant's hysterical fantasy adventure.
