    Thanks to the generous offer of an ARC copy from the author. Another imaginative Middle Grade Fantasy, I'm looking forward to what seems to be the promise of a continued story. But don't worry, this has a satisfying end. I'm always on the lookout for good Middle Grade Fantasy storie...

    I first was introduced to this author, Mr. Funaro when he wrote his darker suspense novels. Which I just enjoyed a lot. Than, Mr. Funaro started a new journey into young adult author. The Alistair Grim's Odditorium series is great. It is magical and whimsical. All ages from children, t...

    This is a fantastical mystery involving a spooky house, a magical clock, and inanimate animals that come to life. It is an entertaining read, but for me it didn't really stand out from the pack as far as MG fantasy goes. There is a dead mother and a confused, distant father. Nothing re...

    I always look forward to a new book by Gregory Funaro but wow, this time he really dials it up to 11! Eleven year-old Lucy Tinker and her older brother Oliver (age 13) are struggling through life after the death of their mom two years earlier. Their father is the proprietor of a sma...

    A Tale of "Magical Balance" "No one can hear you scream in the Shadow Woods." One of Gregory Funaro's previous series was built around Alistair Grim's Odditorium, and while they were fun books they were also a bit manic and were loaded with weird and fantastical inventions. I exp...

    Review originally published 8 January 2019 at Falling Letters. I received a free copy from the author. Watch Hollow is less creepy than the cover implies but Funaro establishes a consistently spooky atmosphere throughout the book. References to iPads and Google searches early on giv...

    I had the privilege of reading this as part of an advanced readers group and, WOW! I loved Watch Hollow from page 1. The author pulls you right into the story from the moment it starts. Kids will love the book, to be sure, but as an adult I was reminded - dare I say - of The Boy Who...

    5 out of 5 shining stars! I received an ARC ebook from Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review. Wow. Wow. Wow. I loved-loved Watch Hollow. This story is quite different than the Odditorium series, which I also liked a lot. While the latter has a huge, super-cool world, this new...

    As I suspected I would, I really enjoyed this book! An enjoyable cast, a giant fantastical cuckoo clock, and a charming (if sometimes unsettling) manor. The story is unique and very intriguing from the get go. The Tinkers are a sweet and loveable family, and my initial love of the char...

    On sale now! Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: Gregory 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 ?...

    The best book I've read so far in this year and I've read quite a number in this couple months. I like how the battle of love vs. fear is explored. Although fear is supposedly greater for mere mortals like us, love and hope combined always win and that message is clear. The beauty o...

    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 thei...

    This was a good, solid, intriguing, juvenile fantasy book. I enjoyed it a lot. But if I'm going to compare this book to Gregory Funaro's Alistair Grim books, I have to say that I prefer those but this one was still good. I just predicted some of the plot twists whereas in Alistair Grim...
