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 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 shadowsWhen Lucy and Oliver Tinker ar On sale now Review first posted on Fantasy LiteratureGregory Funaro s just published Watch Hollow is a charmingly spooky or perhaps spookily charming contemporary fantasy featuring an 11 year old girl Lucy Tinker her 13 year old brother Oliver and their clockmaker father and also a fearsome giant a boy who mysteriously appears and disappears and a full dozen magical talking animals sure to warm the hearts of middle grade readers After a brief prologue with a heart stopping chase involving the giant a traitorous crow and a rat named Fennish Seven the story shifts to our main characters Lucy and her brother Oliver Between their mother s death from cancer two years earlier and their father s lack of business acumen the Tinker family is teetering on the brink of financial disaster So it feels like a huge windfall when a stranger Mr uigley appears in Tinker s Clock Shop and offers Mr Tinker a fortune in gold coins to come to uigley s old abandoned mansion Blackford House deep in the woods in Rhode Island and fix a huge clock that s built into the home and is the source of electrical power for the home To sweeten the deal Lucy and Oliver are invited alongThe Tinker family finds Blackford House an ominous place dingy and dilapidated with black twisted trees pressing in on every side The broken clock is ten feet in diameter with twelve animal shaped holes where the numbers on the face of the clock would normally appear Lucy finds two wooden statues of a snarling cat and a cute little dog that are the perfect size to fit in the clock face but the animals positions are the wrong shape The answer to that mystery is explained at least in part that night when the wooden dog turns into a real one and begs Lucy for her help Blackford House is sentient but weakened by an evil giant called the Garr who lurks in the woods The house its magical clock and animals and even the Tinkers themselves are in danger Watch Hollow is an appealing magical adventure with just enough tension and creepiness to keep things exciting for younger readers Both boys and girls will find the Tinker siblings sympathetic they re well rounded characters with both strengths like their courage and love and problems like Lucy s tendency to get in fights with a bullying classmate and Oliver s anxiety about his acne The animal characters are also delightful with some distinct personalities Torsten Six the little dog is anxious but loving and eager to trust Meridian the cat is far suspicious of the Tinker familyFunaro s writing has improved noticeably since he wrote his first middle grade novels a few years ago Alistair Grim s Odditorium and Alistair Grim s Odd Auaticum While Watch Hollow isn t uite as crazily fantastical as those books I found Watch Hollow coherent in its plot with improved flow and characterization Funaro still occasionally does some telling rather than showing but overall the plot flows well with enough depth and interesting details to keep the reader engagedEverything here was designed to work together in perfect balance sunstone and shadow wood light and dark day and night For in such balance there is potent magic Watch Hollow is the type of book that would lend itself to reading aloud to younger children as well as being given to middle grade readers who love fantasy animals or both The story ends on an open note not a cliffhanger thankfully with a second book Watch Hollow The Alchemist s Shadow expected in early 2020 I look forward to the further adventures of Lucy and OliverThanks to the author for sending a copy of this book to me for review Sarah Keys Back Sufferers Bible the

Rive 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 keepIt doesn’t take long however for the children to realize that there is to I ve been a reader of Gregory Funaro s books since the very beginning when his novel Alistair Grim s Odditorium was released by Disney Hyperion The Alistair Grim series was simply magical and is still one of my very favorites If only Hyperion wasn t so focused on stretching thin their beloved Percy Jackson series maybe Alistair Grim would have received a third book to wrap up the series But alas Disney s publishing is an unfair mess so we have yet to see what happens to Alistair and his magical Odditorium Please go support that series by the way There s still hope for it as long as people keep readingFortunately Harper has wisely given Funaro a chance to spread his creative wings with the brand new middle grade fantasy Watch Hollow The story begins with Lucy Tinker and her family receiving an invite to Blackford House in Watch Hollow to fix a very mysterious clock While staying at the house they discover that it isn t a normal place and neither are the woods bordering the house In fact the woods are inhabited by The Garr a monster that wants Blackford House all to itself Now it is up to Lucy as the new caretaker of Blackford to protect the house its magic and her own family from the beastCreepy mansions small towns giant monsters Watch Hollow is a decent mix of fantasy and spookiness that never fails to be cute and entertaining The characters are lovable and the villains are scary but not too scary I liked Lucy as a main character but I liked her brother Oliver even It s sweet how closely he looks out for his little sister and even his father I also like that since he s a teenager he s struggling with acne and his voice cracking You don t often see details about puberty in middle grade fantasy books but the characters are at that age so it makes sense to reference that It made Oliver seem realisticWhile the Grim series took place in Victorian times Watch Hollow is a modern day tale with a very different feel This book doesn t have the whimsy and old fashioned charm of Funaro s previous work but I don t think it is supposed to If I had to choose between the two I prefer the uirky energy of Alistair Grim but Watch Hollow may appeal to modern day childrenOverall while not as fleshed out and epic as the Alistair Grim books this is a worthy addition to your middle grade fantasy shelf and is a great book to put in the hands of children It has just enough adventure mystery spookiness and cute animals to keep them turning the pagesA big thanks to Gregory Funaro for sending me an arc in exchange for an honest review I m still drooling over this beautiful cover
