About the Book
Commended for the 2009 Resource Links Best Books and for the 2010 Best Books for Kids and Teens, short-listed for the 2012 Diamond Willow Award Chosen for the Toronto Public Library's 2015 Great Reads for Kids collectionWhat do you do when a 400-year-old gargoyle moves into your backyard? Especially when no one else but you knows he's ALIVE? Twelve-year-old Katherine Newberry can tell you all about life with a gargoyle. Hes naughty. He gets people into trouble. He howls at the moon, breaks statues and tramples flowers to bits, all the while making it look like you did it! He likes to throw apple cores and stick his tongue out at people when they aren't looking. How do you get rid of a gargoyle? Do they help the gargoyle leave for good? If you're like Katherine and her parents, after getting to know him, you might really want him to stay.
