Coville Diary of a Mad BrownieThis is an engaging story about a very unorganized girl named Alex. Alex is about to inherit Angus, a fierce and proud brownie who is bound to Alex by a 300 year old curse cast by the Queen of Shadows. Life becomes difficult shortly after Angus arrives, but Alex learns about the curse and figures out how to fix things in the enchanted world which in return will bring her human world back into order. Angus and Alex’s journals tell this story along with supporting documents. Readers will enjoy this magical story.
