Alistair Grim's Odditorium (Odditorium, #1) by Gregory Funaro
Action, adventure,mystery and magic abound in this YA fantasy about Grubb, a 12 year old boy who escapes his life as a chimney sweep and winds up in Alaistair Grim's Odditorium, a magical building full of magical objects or odditoria. An incident with Mac McClintock, a talking pocket watch leads them all into trouble as they are pursued by the horrible Prince Nightshade and his dreadful undead army of Shadesmen. There are fairies and banshees, Doom Dogs, a ninja and more in this action packed story that I am sure kids will enjoy.
I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
