This special three-book bundle collects all the books in the Lost Gargoyle series! In The Gargoyle in My Yard, Katherine meets an ancient wandering gargoyle named Gargoth. He ends up being adopted by her family, but all is not well since his nemesis, the cruel The Collector, is lurking â€“ he once owned Gargoth and wants him back. The story continues in The Gargoyle Overhead, in which Gargoth is reunited with his oldest friend, Ambergine. Finally, in The Gargoyle at the Gates, we find out that Gargoth and Ambergine are not alone; others of their kind still exist, and The Collector wants them all! Katherine, her new friend Christopher, and the gargoyles must join together to foil his plans.
- The Gargoyle in My Yard

I would recommend this book to young independent readers with an interest in gargoyles, magic, and adventure fiction. The inclusion of Toronto history and landmarks are an added bonus to a great read.
