Check out my new Book Trailer for Carter and the Curious Maze! It's been selected as a Featured Video on Open Book Toronto this week: Featured Video
Here's what they have to say: "If you loved Louis Sachar's Wayside Stories series as a kid, you will want to check out the latest offering from Philippa Dowding: Carter and the Curious Maze (Dundurn Press), the third book in Dowding's Weird Stories Gone Wrong series.
It tells the strange story of Carter, who is beguiled into trying his luck in a mysterious maze at the local fair by an elderly (and possibly untrustworthy) maze-keeper. As if finding his way through the maze (and dodging its creepy inhabitants) wasn't enough, something is even more wrong when Carter emerges."
I loved Louis Sachar (still do)! Thank you OpenBook Toronto. And thanks to illustrator Shawna Daigle for the amazing work.
