Mini-Review: Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing-Eye

25241871Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing-Eye by Tania Del Rio and Will Staehle
out of stars

A creepy old Grand Hotel. Check.
Witches and magic. Check.
Monsters in the cellar. Check.
Secret hidden heirlooms. Check.
Tim-Burtonesque illustrations and plot. Double-check.

This book really has everything you could look for in a middle-grade spooky story. However, it owes a lot to its awesome illustrations and whimsical writing. The plot itself is nothing new but it kept me entertained. Since I am not the target audience of this it’s okay that I wasn’t on the edge of my seat the whole time. I know eight-year-old me would have loved it!

Recommended for 8-to-10-year-olds who want some Haloween fun and fans of Tim Burton’s style.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are some of del Rio’s cool illustrations for this book:
