PlotEdit

In 1955, ten-year-old Lewis Barnavelt goes to New Zebedee, Michigan to live with his uncle Jonathan in a creaky old house which has a mysterious ticking heart. Recently orphaned, Lewis only wants a normal childhood but soon discovers he is in line for anything but that. Uncle Jonathan is a well-intentioned warlock but, in his own description, only a parlor magician of modest ability, while his next-door neighbor and good friend, Florence Zimmerman, was once a far more powerful good witch. Years ago, something broke inside her causing all her spells to go wrong. The house that Lewis has just moved into was previously owned by Isaac and Selena Izard. Before dying, this sinister couple had constructed a powerful clock that is hidden somewhere within the house's walls, ticking eternally to pull the world into a magical alignment that would permit Isaac to bring about the end of the world. When Lewis, wanting only to befriend and impress the popular Tarby Corrigan, attempts to raise a dead person in the local cemetery on Halloween, he accidentally releases Isaac Izard from his tomb. Things quickly go awry as Isaac Izard moves to recover the key and set the clock in motion to end the world. Now, with help from Jonathan and Mrs. Zimmerman, they must summon all their courage to prevent the evil warlock, Isaac Izard from completing his task.
