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!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Lifeless in front of everyone but his sister, Derek is convinced the doll is stalking him, and that the doll maker is up to no good. When he recounts tales of the animating doll, his parents believe he is lying, and while he doesn’t claim to always be honest, he is deeply hurt.
The twists in this story are deliciously creepy: scary in that give you a chill and perhaps make you put all the dolls in the house under lock and key. In a fairly short time, Derek is easy to relate to with those issues common to all siblings, and a curiosity that begs to be fed. Geared for readers aged 6 – 10, this story is a perfect read for the Halloween season, with just enough creep factor to be scary, but not so much that nightmares will ensue.
The kids in this story are in the forefront: with appropriate recognition of their own limits and abilities, and honest communication of their fears and concerns: even when the adults are not listening. Enough twists and action to keep engaged, while the story does present a satisfactory ending, for the moment. I look forward to the next in this clever series.
I received an eBook from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
