The house with a clock in it’s walls

This is a great book for those who have read Harry Potter and are looking for something to read that is like it.

Mr. Black- thank you!

I got to watch this movie and bond with my son over the mystic and loving points of life. I absolutely admire the movies and shows that you create. They teach my boy to have faith, courage, and most important -integrity & love. You’re going to be a kickass daddy one day! In a world of confusion I’m grateful that I have your creations to turn my son towards. We need more artists such as yourself. Much love sent your way- The Trudell Family xo
