Editorial Reviews

Denver Book Examiner - Meghan Graves
This book is bound to make your kids keep reading. Almost every chapter ends with a spooky cliffhanger that kept me turning pages late into the night. Rating: 5-Stars
Serial Distractions - Shedrick Pittman-Hassett
Crooked Hills combines all the best aspects of classic children’s mystery books with paranormal chills and adventure. Think “The Hardy Boys meet Supernatural“. The characters are well-drawn and sympathetic and the action is fast-paced and fun.
Dread Central - Sifu Scott
Far from mollycoddling, Bunn puts the readers in the dark and leaves them there without so much as a match for light, then he pounds on the door to give them a thrill. And it works well enough that even the parents of the children who read this book (and the ones that come after it) will enjoy them.
MonsterLibrarian.com - Brandi Blankenship
Right from the beginning, "Crooked Hills" brought a smile to my face. ... Just a few pages in, and I wished I was curled up in a window seat, storm brewing for added effect, all alone in a creepy old house. ... Highly recommended.
Rue Morgue - Jessa Sobczuk
Bunn recognizes everyone must deal with issues such as death and fear, or even grapple with bullies or feelings of isolation. He handles these matters with care, through the eyes of an empathetic and relatable hero who has a good sense of humour.

    Crooked Hills

    Charlie and Alex move to Crooked Hills with their mother following the death of their father. Along with Marty, their cousin, the brothers begin to explore their new surroundings. Marty takes them to Bleeding Rock, a place rumored to be the location of the death of an evil witch, and that's where the story really begins. Spooky, but at the same time fun, Crooked Hills is a great read for the middle grade age group, though I thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Maybe it's cuz I'm such a kid at heart. :)
