The house smelled of sour milk, burnt dinner and bad breath. It had no computer or television or even a single light bulb. The house seemed to have no electricity at all, which made Carlin and Jack very curious. Don’t believe everything they teach you in school. Curiosity is not always a good thing. Some questions are stupid. Oh, and magic is real . . . and it doesn’t play well with others. Carlin and Jack learn that the hard way.
The Misspellers is an original and entertaining novel which is especially recommended for young readers ages 9 to 12.

Carlin and Jack are back. Mr. Bough is not. He’s never around when they need him. Holes flying in the night sky, a plot to bring dragons to Strawberry Island and that nagging feeling that the TV is watching you - this really is one of those summer evenings when they could use his help. Without him will they have to rely on an unreliable faerie. Some nights look like they can’t get any worse . . . until they do.
When you have a problem, the best thing to do is go to source. When the problem is magic? Going to the source means you might not ever get back. There is a reason your parents told you to stay out of the woods or climb down from that tree. There’s a reason we still learn folk tales and nursery rhymes. We just don’t quite remember. There is a reason for that, too.
This one is coming soon. Really.
