Description

Ryan wishes for nothing more than to be able to perform real magic. What he doesn't know is the price he will have to pay to use such magic.

"...reminds me of the books I grew up with by RL Stine and Christopher Pike. If you loved those, these will be perfect."BookLover

Ever since he received a magic kit from his estranged father, Ryan wanted nothing more than to become a professional magician. But when he tries to perform a trick at school, and it fails, he becomes the laughing stock of the entire school–and starts to doubt himself.

Matthew, a creepy loner who hangs out with the school bully, promises Ryan he can help him perform real magic, not just tricks. Ryan doesn't believe him, at first, but then mysterious things start happening to convince him that magic is real after all.

"My daughters and I love the 'Weirdville' series! These books are great for kids who enjoy a little spooky reading but not something so scary they can't sleep." ~ A. LeBlanc

About the author

Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library. She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.

My daughters and I love the ‘Weirdville’ series! These books are great for kids who enjoy a little spooky reading but not something so scary they can’t sleep. ~ A. LeBlanc

Oddly, Majanka Verstraete’s ‘Weirdville’ stories are JUST the right balance of creepy and scary for me, and my tolerance hits right in the middle of the 6- to 10-year-old demographic, perfect readers for this series. ~ Gaele Hi

~~~

"I have read The Doll Maker for myself, but am currently reading it for my 7-year-old son. As an adult, this book wasn’t scary, but an amazingly good read... everything was masterly done for me. To my son? He loves it... and he is so hooked into the story, he’s begging me to keep reading, because he wants to know what happens!" ~ Sabina’s Adventures in Reading

~~~

"This book [The Doll Maker] was like stepping back into my childhood and reading Goosebumps under my blanket with a flashlight. I loved that Verstraete captured that R.L. Stine feel with out being too scary and still very enjoyable." ~ Lydia Yay Books!!

~~~

"My 9-year-old granddaughter Alyssa said, ‘The story was a little spooky and it was awesome. I really loved it because it was creepy.’ This book [Grave Error] was a short but fun read and I enjoyed sharing it with my granddaughter." ~ Jean Smith

~~~

"House of Horrors is my favorite ‘Weirdville’ book to date. There is always the perfect amount of age appropriate scary going on, but this one I found myself holding my breath a couple times or taking a big sigh. Then I laughed at myself... but it is a very good story about facing your own fears...." ~ Tracy Haidle

~~~

"Fright Train...is a great addition to the collection. The Doll Maker set a unique stage for the chapter book genre, feeding on some of the basic fears that children have, and react to dramatically. One could try to compare these to the R.L. Stine series, but they would be wrong to narrowly define them in such a way. Verstraete has a very unique storytelling style that touches the child within, but also reaches the adult reader. ~ Penelope Anne Bartotto

"I read this [Grave Error] to my girls and they loved it. They said it was ‘spooky and funny’ and that they want to read the others. They like the characters and how much adventure that is in these stories." ~ Star Wars Lover

~~~

"I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book [Fright Train] at first but it really brought me back to my childhood. I remember reading RL Stine as a kid and loving the creepy feeling I would get from his books. It was my first taste of paranormal stories and now as an adult I love them. I thought that the characters were well written, the story line was fantastic, and it moved at an appropriate pace for this type of book." ~ Angela Eggett

"As an adult, reading children’s book is sometimes hard to do because our way of thinking is so different. I was a bit
