This novel features the character of Linus Baker, who is a by-the-book caseworker in the Magical Youth Department. He has to figure out whether six dangerous magical children are capable of ending the world.

It is a well-written story that is a good listening experience in audio format. It is like a fairytale sprinkled with a little bit of poetry.
