Welcome to Weirdville: Fright Train
Welcome to Weirdville, the scariest town on earth. Something ancient and evil is lurking in the shadows of this quaint, little town, and every now and then it comes out to play…
When Charlie goes to visit his Grandma in Weirdville, he never expected to end up in the adventure of a lifetime. When his train is cancelled, and he decides to take the train one hour later, an old-fashioned, steam train comes rolling into the station. Even though his gut tells him not to get on board, he does.
Trapped on a train with peopole he can’t trust, and a train conductor who keeps shouting at him to get a valid ticket, Charlie goes through his worst nightmare on this “Fright Train”.
This chapter book, the third in the Weirdville series, is ideal for kids as young as 6 and as old as 11, depending on reading level and parental involvement.
Coming December 2, 2013.
Charlie’s parents drop him off at the train station so he can visit his grandma in Weirdville. It’s a cold winter evening, so when his usual train is cancelled at the last second, Charlie wishes he’d stayed home.
An hour later, shivering from the cold, he climbs onboard the next train to Weirdville, even though he’d rather not. It looks like something straight out of the nineteenth century, as if it used a time machine to arrive at the station.
His shivering doesn’t stop, for soon after Charlie boards, he realizes just how right he was to be wary of this strange train. Something is seriously wrong with all the people onboard. If only he could figure out what was going on. If only he could get off the train.
