A novella to go along with the Gryphon Chronicles, Jake & The Gingerbread Wars follows Jake and his group as they attempt to take a wayward elf back to Santa Claus. The story is fun and the outcome is sweet. My 10- and 12-year-old sons and I all enjoyed it. We haven’t read any of the rest of the series, and my 10-year-old asked me to please put them on our “books to read” list. Because we haven’t read any of the other books, there were occasions where things were referenced that we didn’t know about, but for the most part we didn’t have any trouble jumping into the middle of the series. I recommend reading this book to middle grade kids. It makes a great family read aloud!
