Publisher's Summary

"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it." -Michelangelo
But what if an unscrupulous sculptor could trap someone inside a block of stone, just so he could carve them?
Master Gimpel, a deformed stone carver, intrigues Laurel and Jassy, her gypsy friend, when he offers a path to untold riches. Master Gimpel explains that his Troll's Eye, a red jewel, is a doorway into the stone world where a treasure cave awaits. From the moment Laurel looks through the Troll's Eye, she and her gypsy companion enter a dangerous race for their lives. "Two go in, two must come out."

I liked it, my grandchildren - not so much

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl, the Gypsy, and the Gargoyle to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jesse was definitely my favorite character. He remained a loyal friend 'til the end.

Have you listened to any of Paula Bodin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think so. Sorry to say, that's something I don't pay enough attention to.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book twice on my IPAD, on trips with my grandchildren.. First with my 17 year old granddaughter who was disappointed with the ending. Later with my younger grandchildren, ages 10, 9, and 7. The two youngest cried when L was left behind and J got out. They liked that J came back every year to memorialize their experience, but they still cry at all sad endings.I liked the book and still almost cried at the sad ending, too. Very good. I enjoyed it. Crying is infectious in this family.

The reader does a great job of brining all the characters to life and keeping them interesting.
