    1. I checked this book out from my public library a few times as a kid, but never owned a copy. Cut to twenty years later, I had long since forgotten the author and the title, but remember really loving this book, as well as the author's other books in this series. I had a hell of a time tracking it down, but finally, after some rigorous eBay searches I finally found it and bought a copy immediately.Revisiting a story from your childhood, especially one I've mythologized as much as I have this one [...]


    2. Dr. Dredd recalls Ray Bradbury's Somethign Wicked This Way Comes - A strange man brings a wagon of wonders to a small village. During a display and tour of unusual and mystifying items, he reveals that he can provide what the town needs most - rain - but for an undisclosed price. Dr. Dredd is not a man to be trifled with, and when the boy he uses to bring the rain goes missing, the town of Coven Tree is treated to experience just what darkness Dr. Dredd is capable of unleashing. The author, Bill [...]


    3. The town of Coven Tree battles the forces of evil after making a deal with Dr. Dredd to provide them with rain.


    4. One of my favorites as a kid, I remember making an attempt to transcribe it, realizing after page 3 that it would be easier to just save my allowance and buy a copy. Well, 25 years later, I managed to do that. Children's "horror" is (or at least was) an underrepresented genre, and as an adult, I still enjoyed the quirky townspeople and the voice that Britain uses for his country folk - although I have to say that the accent reads a little more southern than New England. Nonetheless, a fun, imagi [...]


    5. i may still have a copy of this. one of the best children's books written. mainly because it wasn't particularly written for children. very strange, and the best of a fairly consistent series of novels about the same new england town.


    6. This was my absolute favorite book when I was in elementary. I checked this book out of the library so many times that for my birthday my librarian bought me this book. A creepy story about how a wagon rolls into a small town and brings chaos and havoc. Any child bookworm should read this book.


    7. Sort of a children's horror novel that I breathlessly read in a couple days in 3rd or 4th grade, unable to put it down or look away. A sort of traveling circus rolls into a small New Enlgand town, offering aid in a time of drought, but at what cost?



    8. This author was one to have for imagination and fantasy, when you're young. I can't remember the plot, except that it was similar to the Wishgiver (Maybe), but I'd probably reread it as an adult.





    9. This is a book that I loved as a child and I enjoyed reading it aloud to my kids who were every bit as entranced as I remember being.
