What if your best friend was a naughty 400-year-old gargoyle? And what if he just happened to be in terrible danger? It’s not always easy, but thirteen-year-old Katherine Newberry is friends with a gargoyle. His name is Gargoth of Tallus, and he lives in her backyard. Gargoth has lost the only creature on the planet who can help him. Her name is Ambergine, and she’s been his greatest friend for hundreds of years. What Katherine and Gargoth dont know is that Ambergine is searching for him too. But she is not alone. Gargoths greatest enemy is prowling the city, and it’s a race against time to find him first! In this sequel to The Gargoyle in My Yard (2009), The Gargoyle Overhead provides the historical backstory to Gargoths life, and further explores themes of friendship, courage and loneliness.

Philippa Dowding is an award-winning magazine copywriter, poet and children’s author. Her books in the Lost Gargoyle series were nominated for the Diamond Willow 2011 and Silver Birch Express 2012 Awards. The character of Gargoth was inspired by a visit to an odd antique store populated with mysterious gargoyles. Philippa lives in Toronto.

Dowding’s protagonists are genuine and interesting, and the balance of autonomy and dependence she gives young Katherine will satisfy both parents and young readers ... I would highly recommend this story to young independent readers with an interest in magic and magical creatures. - Resource Links
