In Keir Graff’s delightful and creative middle grade adventure, a boy named Brian hopes to have an exciting summer playing soccer with his pals.  However, his scientist dad must fly away for a once in a lifetime chance to work in Antarctica, and sends him to stay with his uptight uncle, aunt, and cousin Nora in Boring, Illinois.  Little does Brian know he’s about to experience one of the wildest times of his life when he discovers a strange, oddly proportioned house in the nearby woods.  Graff packs his whimsical tale with humor, heart, and heroics, and the reader cannot stop turning the pages!  This book has some seriously funny dialogue and situations, but it also gets the heart racing as Brian fights to save the dangerous and yet oh-so-lovable Matchstick Castle in a race against time.–Mr. Brian
