Author Majanka Verstraete undoubtedly was influenced by Serling’s TV show when she wrote The Doll Maker, a psychological thriller for pre-teens.
When Derek passes a new doll shop in town his sister Annie wants one of the dolls. Mother eventually gives into her demands and purchases the life-like toy named Tim, who resembles a three-year-old boy with “tiny eyebrows, a turned-up nose, and a mouth with miniscule teeth.” The doll freaks Derek to the core.
Derek tells his best friends about the doll after his first run-in with the Chucky-like wanna-be. The little monster even bites him.
Of course no one really believes the ten-year-old with an over active imagination until Derek takes friends Jamie and Martin to the doll shop and Martin falls under the influence of the doll maker’s spell.
Verstraete knows how to build tension in this 86-page middle-grade horror story. Readers will find themselves white-knuckled as they flip pages to the book’s unexpected climax.
This reviewer rarely reads a book in one sitting, but The Doll Maker was an exception. However, there is a warning: If you want to sleep at night, don’t read this book before bedtime.
When a doll shop suddenly appears in town, and no one can remember anyone moving into the store, strange things begin happening in the small town of Weirdville. One afternoon Annie, along with her mother and older brother Derek, stroll past the store. Annie begins to beg for a doll sitting in the display window but her Mother tells her no. After all, she just had a birthday. Derek inquires why she would even want something so creepy. As their Mother drags Annie away, Derek glances back and notices the creepy Doll Maker standing in the shop window.
When Derek visits the store with his two friends, Martin and Jamie, something strange happens and Martin falls ill. Unbeknownst to the three boys at the time, The Doll Maker has placed a cursed on Martin. Then Derek learn kids have gone missing in their town and one has a very similar name to Annie's new doll, Tim. Could it be a consequence or is something going on with the creepy new Doll Maker? Derek is determined to find out.
The Doll Maker will keep you on the edge of your seat while wanting more and more. You'll quickly turn each page to learn more while curled up in your bed. Just be sure to leave the lights on!
