Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Scott S. Floyd
"Watch his eyes," a dad tells his son about a pitcher. Well, you had better watch your eyes before they become the pitcher's in this gothic tale. In true Poe fashion, this modern horror tale turns baseball from pastime to ghost time. A mad (in more ways than one) scientist has returned to Duston Heights to exact his revenge on Johnny Dixon's grandfather. The only problem is he uses Johnny to accomplish it. The scientist, Evaristus Sloane, has created a pitching robot that uses human eyes and black magic to become almost human. His initial robot was thwarted by Johnny's granddad 50 years earlier. Now he is back and ready to out-pitch a pro player for a ten-thousand-dollar payoff. Sloane needs Johnny's eyes and a little black magic to finish his project. The robot is uncontrollable and it is up to Johnny and his friends Fergie and the professor to foil the plan and put the killer robot to rest for good. I hated to put this book down. If you have a thriller book lover in your house or classroom, this is a must-read. This title is part of the "Johnny Dixon Series."
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8 Johnny Dixon and Professor Childermass, along with their friend Byron ``Fergie'' Ferguson, are back in another imaginative chiller. Here the three are pitted against Evaristus Sloane, an insane wizard and inventor. But even more frightening than Sloane is a robot he invented some 50 years before. The robot was built to look like a baseball player and to pitch balls, but the Professor, Johnny, and Fergie discover a much darker side to the mechanism. After finding the dismantled robot in an abandoned house, the Professor reassembles it. But after placing its eyes back in the empty sockets, the Professor realizes too late that he has resurrected a killer machine. Not only must the robot be stopped but also its mad inventor before Johnny loses his eyes and his life to a terrifying scheme. As always, Bellairs skillfully runs a current of evil just beneath the surface of the commonplace. The supernatural is mixed with the ordinary so effortlessly and so naturally as to make even the most bizarre people and situations seem possible in a very unsettling way. A unique plot, marvelous characters, and non-stop suspense make for deliciously wicked fun. Drew Stevenson, Tompkins County Public Library, Ithaca, N.Y.

    Eyes of the Killer Robot Review

    Mystery books are for kids you say? Well, this not just an ordinary mystery book. Eyes of the Killer Robot is an outstanding mystery book. I loved this book! I couldn¿t put this one down. It is, in my opinion, one of the best mystery thrillers of all time. This book definitely sends a couple chills down your spine. Pick it up and you won¿t be able to put it down. If you love mystery, this is the book for you. Don¿t miss out on a chance to get Eyes of the Killer Robot, or you might be missing the book of a lifetime. John Bellair writes many mystery books. This book, Eyes of the Killer Robot, is just one of his many creations.

    A Deep Book-The Giver

    The Giver was deep and touching. I feel that lois Lowry did a outstanding job of describing the feelings of her characters. I llike scientific books so I loved this book. If you like futuristicand creative books, you'll love The Giver. This book is not just for kids, my teacher told me this book was really good and she was right!
