New York Times bestselling author Gregory Funaro brings us into a world where magic exists, monsters roam in the shadows, and wooden animals come to life.

Deep within the enchanted woods in the town of Watch Hollow stands the once-grand Blackford House, whose halls hold a magical secret: a giant cuckoo clock that does much more than tell time. But when the clock's gears cease to turn, an evil presence lurking among the trees begins to come out of the shadows.

When Lucy and Oliver Tinker arrive in Watch Hollow, they have no idea that anything is wrong. A mysterious stranger has made their father an offer that's too good for him to refuse. All Mr. Tinker needs to do is fix the clock at Blackford House and fistfuls of gold coins are his to keep.

It doesn't take long, however, for the children to realize that there is more to Blackford House than meets the eye. And before they can entirely understand the strange world they've stumbled into, Lucy and Oliver must join forces with a host of magical clock animals to defeat the Garr--a vicious monster that not only wants Blackford House for itself, but also seeks to destroy everything the Tinkers hold dear.

Spooky and mysterious. Talking animals and boy and girl main characters make this a book for anyone that likes a little magic with their mysteries.

When the Tinker family is offered a lucrative contract to fix a cuckoo clock in a mysterious house, it's an offer they can't refuse. Soon, they realize that this is far from an ordinary clock. It is in fact the key to protecting the house and its inhabitants from the evil creeping in from the surrounding woods. Warning: The ending is a cliff hanger with a sequel in the works!

This is possibly an odd reaction to have to a book, but I spent much of the time I was reading this thinking, “This would make such a good movie.” And I stand by that! This would be a perfect kids’ movie – spooky but not too scary, set in an old, possibly haunted house in the woods, and with a feel-good story underneath all the eeriness. I didn’t completely love this, but I think it’s a thoroughly enjoyable read for the kids in your life.
