The House with a Clock in Its Walls
I loved this book when I was a kid. The story was intriguing and suspenseful, plus it was illustrated by Edward Gorey. What was not to love?
A movie based on this book has been released. I was a little hesitant...books don't always get translated very well on the silver screen. However, it looks pretty good. It's directed by Eli Roth and stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchett.
