The House With a Clock in Its Walls (book review)
The House With a Clock in Its Walls, by John Bellairs, is the story of ten-year-old Lewis, who leaves his home to live with his eccentric Uncle Jonathan. Lewis is amazed when he is told that both his uncle and his next door neighbor are witches! Lewis wants to learn magic, but his uncle forbids him to use magic books. When Lewis disobeys his uncle and brings evil Selenna Izard back from the dead, he has no idea of the trouble he has caused...
This book was a fast read, and also full of suspense and spookiness. I would not like to read this book in the middle of the night!!
I give this book 8 out of 10 stars.
