The House with a Clock in Its Walls
I enjoyed this book and I can't wait to see the movie. Having this in the back of my mind, I could see character differences from the actors cast, but it didn't make me like the movie any less. Now after I see the movie, I want to look for the other books in this series.
Orphaned Lewis Barnavelt comes to live with his Uncle Jonathan and quickly learns that both his uncle and his next-door neighbor are witches on a quest to discover the terrifying clock ticking within the walls of Jonathan's house. Can the three of them save the world from certain destruction?'
