The House with a Clock in its Walls

Review: The House with a Clock in its Walls
from: Practice Makes Better
Clocks disarm me, with their incessant nagging of the marching of time, and the idea of a clock to end the world is well, fitting with my dislike. It would be a clock to ruin all the fun of living with a wizard. My hero, a fat teenager loses his parents and has to live with his uncle Johnathan.

Tarby has a sister?  Cool.

Tarby is my uncle and grew up with Bellairs in Marshall. My grandmother is portrayed in the book as well when Lewis goes over to Tarby's house.

I didn't find out this family history until after I wrote my blog post.

I was elated to discover the connection.
