Watch Hollow—a Gothic-tinged, middle grade fantasy by New York Times bestselling author Gregory Funaro—is now available in paperback. In a world where magic exists, monsters roam, and wooden animals come to life, Lucy and Oliver Tinker will need to rely on their wits and each other if they want to survive.
Deep within an enchanted woods sits the once-grand Blackford House, whose halls hold a magical secret: a giant cuckoo clock that does much more than tell time. But when the clock’s gears cease to turn, an evil presence lurking among the trees begins to come out of the shadows.
Of course, when Lucy and Oliver Tinker and their father arrive at Blackford House, they have no idea that anything is wrong. They’ve been brought to this rundown home in this isolated small town by an offer from a mysterious stranger that’s too good for them to refuse. All Mr. Tinker needs to do is restore the house’s clock and fistfuls of gold coins are his to keep. But it doesn’t take long for Lucy and Oliver to realize that far more than the clock needs saving. They discover that both the magic within the house’s walls and the animal guardians that are charged with protecting it are in dire need of their help.
As Lucy and Oliver learn about the magical world they’ve stumbled into, an evil monster emerges from the woods intent on capturing their new animal friends and destroying everything the Tinkers hold dear. It’s a fantastical adventure by the author of the New York Times bestselling Alistair Grim’s Odditorium series, Gregory Funaro.
