Chris Columbus' House of Secrets book out in April

E-mail Print PDF

From Harper Collins --

‘A break-neck, jam-packed, rollercoaster of an adventure’ J.K. Rowling

Hold onto your hats. Acclaimed film director, producer and screenwriter Chris Columbus has swapped
the big screen for books with House of Secrets, the new trilogy which he has co-written with Ned Vizzini of
MTV’s Teen Wolf fame. House of Secrets is their first collaboration and serves up everything an eight to
twelve year old reader could possibly want from an adventure.

An adventure that brings out traits in the Walker children that they never realised they had. Up until ‘the
incident’, Cordelia (14, a book worm), Brendan (12, a big gamer) and Eleanor (8, passionate about horses)
had it all: loving parents, a big house in San Francisco, all the latest video games. But all that changed
when their father lost his job... Now the family is moving into Kristoff House, a mysterious place built
nearly a century earlier by a troubled fantasy writer. Suddenly the siblings find themselves launched on an
epic journey to retrieve a dark book of untold power and uncover the Walker family's secret history.

With Chris Columbus’ 25 years of legendary film writing, direction and production of classics including
Gremlins, The Goonies, the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series, it is no wonder that he is responsible for this
brilliant new adventure. Combined with Ned Vizzini’s award-winning talents as the creator of cult teen
books, House of Secrets is jam-packed with memorable characters, humour, suspense from the outset,
imaginative worlds, creatures, warriors and some agreeable historical references thrown in.
