Overview

3,500 words, with 8 grayscale illustrations. On Halloween night, the moon rises on the wrong side of the sky, and a mysterious figure appears at James Heston’s window. Little sister Ida is transformed by the wicked Doctor Blisterworm’s spell, and James Heston must travel to the murky Bogey World to save her. Fortunately, Nettle (the family cat) may be more than she seems.
Excerpt: The strange man was wearing a long dark coat that was the same color and texture as the night sky. Stars winked in it. He stood right outside James Heston’s window, looking right in at him, unsurprised, as if he had just been waiting for James Heston to open that window. “Child, don’t look at the moon!” the strange man croaked urgently, waving a warning hand at James Heston. “At least, not until you’ve taken one of these…” He held out a long-fingered hand with a small pile of wrapped candies in it. “Who are you? And what are those?” James Heston asked, backing away. “I am Doctor Blisterworm, and these are my patented Moon Drops. If you take one, you’ll be able to look at the moon all you want tonight! If you don’t eat a Moon Drop, this cursed Halloween moon, sailing away on the WRONG side of the sky, could blind you instantly.”
