Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Dogs:"It's about ghosts and terrifying danger and going mad all at once. I didn't know what was real and what was imagined until the very last page. I loved it!" -Melvin Burgess, author of Carnegie Medal winner Junk"In a novel both harrowing and hopeful, Stratton winds twin tales of abuse and hatred and madness." -Gary Schmidt, author of Newbery Honor winner The Wednesday Wars"Brilliant, fast-paced and eerie. It kept me guessing right to the end."-Joseph Delaney, author of The Last Apprentice series"It is increasingly rare to find genuine, convincing narratives that have us looking over our shoulders. The Dogs is such a narrative.What would it be like if the most frightening thing in your world lay at the heart of your own family? Stratton imagines this horror full and convincingly." -Quill & Quire, starred reviewPraise for Curse of the Dream Witch:Winner, CLA Book of the Year for Children Award, 2014Honour Book, OLA Silver Birch Award - Fiction, 2014Nominee, Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy, 2014Nominee, Red Cedar Award (BC Young Readers' Choice), 2015Nominee, Rocky Mountain Book Award (Alberta Children's Choice), 2015 "A page-turning middle grade fairy-tale adventure about courage, friendship and loyalty that will charm adult and child readers from start to finish." -CLA Award Jury "Unlikely friendships are formed, fears are faced, and evil is overcome in this adventure that is fast-paced and filled with the supernatural." -CM: Canadian Review of Materials
