"Towell tucks violent tempests, maggoty slime, hideous transformations, nightmares, sudden terrors and like atmosphere-building elements into a rousingly melodramatic literary debut." —Kirkus Reviews
"If a studio hasn't already snapped up the rights to a feature film, they would be fools not to do it." —Edge
"A splendidly odd little tale." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
About the Author
KATY TOWELL is the creator of the Childrin R Skary website. She is also a graphic designer, writer, and illustrator in Los Angeles with dreams of one day being the scary old lady in the house about which all the neighborhood children tell ghost stories. When not doing these things, she collects antiques, strange teas, and carnivorous houseplants, and she plays a little tune on her violin now and again.
