Witch's Pie: A Coby and Kyle Adventure (Coby and Kyle Adventures) (Volume 1)
Ric Dortone, author
Twelve-year-old twins Coby and Kyle Keller live at Dillard’s Academy. The small boarding school in the English countryside has been their home since they were dropped off on the doorstep as infants and adopted by the headmaster. They share a brotherly bond that borders on the telepathic, and they are the best of friends. Syrena is the notorious Tickle Witch. She haunts the dreams of children and tickles them in their sleep until they turn into pumpkins—pumpkins that she uses to make pies for her evil friends at the feast on Halloween. Her loyal pumpkin servant, Sebastian, was the first. It is he who finds her next victim so she can begin the spell. This year that victim is Coby Keller. When Syrena shows up in Coby’s dreams, the Keller brothers put their heads together and rig their room with traps. But it isn’t enough. Syrena returns the next night, and the Kellers find themselves racing against time to save Coby from a terrible fate. Will the Kellers beat the clock and stop Syrena’s evil plan, or will Kyle lose his beloved brother in the witch’s terrible pie oven?
