Michael Grant’s middle-grade series is a huge hit with fans of fantasy adventure. The 12 year-old protagonist, Mack, is a loveable, relatable hero—a kid whose ordinary life is turned upside down by some unexpected news. When this regular kid is greeted by a 3,000 year-old man who reveals that Mack is actually part of an ancient group of 12 “Magnifica,” the adventure begins. Mack must search for the 11 other members of his group, as they join forces to fight a mysterious evil queen. But unlike some other less-playful adventure series, The Magnificent 12 is laugh-out-loud funny, peppering the thrills with a lot of kid-friendly humor.
This special free edition contains a sneak peek at The Magnificent 12: The Trap, available for pre-order now.

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Michael Grant recommends:
"One of my favorite series is Animorphs. A group of kids are given the power to turn into animals and use that power to fight a secret alien invasion. Those kids call themselves “Animorphs”. KA Applegate's simple concept ended up spawning more than sixty books. Animorphs sets the standard for middle-grade action series because the books are intense, realistic, funny and mind-blowing."
