TUESDAY, October 2nd at 7:00pm: THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS Continues

"Is there no end to the suspense John Bellairs can create?" 

("School Library Journal," starred review)
"Thereas suspense and action aplenty. . . . Perfect for the pre-Stephen King set."
"Brace yourself for a wild ride." 
("Kirkus Reviews")

When Lewis Barnavelt, an orphan. comes to stay with his uncle Jonathan, he expects to meet an ordinary person. But he is wrong. Uncle Jonathan and his next-door neighbor, Mrs. Zimmermann, are both magicians! Lewis is thrilled. At first, watching magic is enough. Then Lewis experiments with magic himself and unknowingly resurrects the former owner of the house: a woman named Serenna Izard. It seems that Serenna and her husband built a timepiece into the walls--a clock that could obliterate humankind. And only the Barnavelts can stop it!

Faerie Maven-Pralou continues the first of John Bellairs’ Lewis Barnavelt series.
