The Curse of the Blue Figurine, by John Bellairs

bluefigurineMy first experience with John Bellairs, The House With a Clock in its Walls, was mixed – I liked it, but had trouble really connecting with it. The Blue Figurine was happily much better, a creepy little children’s book perfect for reading around Halloween. I loved Johnny Dixon and the Professor, and I felt the narrative flowed better than in the other I read. I miss having Edward Gorey illustrations, though.
