My apologies, but I just saw this question--not sure how it got by me, but so glad you enjoyed Alistair Grim's Odditorium! I originally envisioned the story as a trilogy, so hopefully the powers-that-be at Disney will make that happen--if they want more than three books, then hopefully yours truly can make that happen. :-) I just finished edits on the second book, which I expect to be released in early 2016. Thank you for your lovely review, and all the best for 2015! (less)

Well, it's been forever since I've posted here on goodreads, but just a quick note to let you know that the first book in my new middle-grade duology from HarperCollins is now titled "Watch Hollow." The release is set for February 12, 2019--just in time for Valentine's Day! Matt Griffin was tapped to do the cover and some interior spots, and let me just say that what I've see so far looks AMAZI... Read more of this blog post »

"I am probably not the target audience for a book such as this one, but I enjoyed it very much. The story had a fairytale feeling, and had a very nice ending (thankfully there were no cliffhangers). Certainly appropriate for older kids."

“The odd was the ordinary at Alistair Grim's. The people who lived there were odd. The things they did there were odd. Even the there itself there was odd.”
Gregory Funaro, Alistair Grim's Odditorium

“On the other hand, if you were too timid to ask for directions, you could just walk around until you came upon a black, roundish building that resembled a fat spider with its legs tucked up against its sides.”
