Cover & Synopsis: THE MAD APPRENTICE by Django Wexler

If you know a middle-grade reader, you’ve already turned them on to Django Wexler’s book The Forbidden Library, right? Right?

Now Bibliosanctum has revelaed the cover for the upcoming second book in Django’s Forbidden Library series, The Mad Apprentice!

Here’s the book synopsis (larger cover appears below):

The dark and thrilling sequel to the book Kirkus called, “Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and Inkheart all rolled into one”

When Alice’s mysterious Uncle Geryon sends her to help capture a rogue apprentice–a boy who has the same ability Alice has to Read himself into stories–she knows to expect a wild and unpredictable trip. But even though Alice has visited the magical realms inside libraries before, this adventure is far more dangerous. Because Torment, the magic creature holding this library together, has gone mad.

But he might also have information about Alice’s missing father.

  1. If you know a middle-grade reader, you’ve already turned them on to Django Wexler’s book The Forbidden Library, right? Right?

    Actually *yes*, as Django knows :)

  2. It’s good to see libraries, books, and librarians play such a strong role in books for kids.

    I just finished the first book in the “Ninja Librarians” series by Jenn Bennett called THE ACCIDENTAL KEYHAND which in listed as juvenile.

    A adult book series with similar ideas is Jim Hines’ “Magic ex Libris” series.

  3. Wonderful to see Django’s book featured here. (I’m reading it now). Also, thank you Marilynn for mentioning my Ninja Librarians series. I just wanted to do an author chime in with a gentle correction: The Ninja Librarians: The Accidental Keyhand is by Jen Swann Downey. : )
