About the Author
J. Scott Savage has returned after being lost in a Mexican rainforest. His office is now filled with Mayan scrolls, hieroglyphics, artifacts, and star charts. His children and children-in-law, Big Nick, Erica, Scott, Natalie, Jake, and Little Nick, look pale and claim to be cursed. His grandchildren, Gray, Lizzie, and Jack, are heavily wrapped in mummy-like bandages. And his wife, Jennifer, has reportedly been seen glowing green and hexing the neighbors.
"An entertainingly gross blend of comedy and horror. Savage incorporates elements of voodoo practice into the creepy mystery the boys unravel, which will keep readers' interest even as they are laughing."--Publishers Weekly
"Savage's character development is strong and the story, a blend of mystery, realistic fiction, action, and humor, will appeal to a wide variety of readers. They will love entering Nick's world."--School Library Journal
"Striking the perfect balance between rib-tickling humor and bone-chilling adventure, the first novel in Savage's new middle-grade series is sure to please young readers looking for a thrill. It's hard to imagine that readers (particularly boys) won't enjoy every minute of hair-raising fun."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
