Draven Doogle is a typical kid starting third grade. That is, typical until a new neighbor and a worldwide pandemic change everything. From his bedroom window Draven witnesses an unsettling event across the street at Mrs. McBecky’s house. A girl walks into the house with Mrs. McBecky, but only an Octopus Monster walks out making Draven very suspicious. Draven’s world is turned even further upside down when he learns that Mrs. McBecky is a new teacher at his school! He spends the school year trying to avoid Mrs. McBecky while still observing her terrible actions. Then even more horrific, the coronavirus causes a worldwide pandemic, the closing of Draven’s school, and even stranger activity at Mrs. McBecky’s house. When Draven’s dad becomes sick with the coronavirus, Draven must find the courage to sneak onto Mrs. McBecky’s porch to steal one of her coronavirus potions. When he fails this mission, Draven must face the terrifying witch head on. He is willing to do anything to save his dad, even if that means facing the dreaded Mrs. McBecky.
As a third grade teacher, this was a sad day in my classroom. Classrooms become families and cutting the school year early was like saying goodbye to your family at the end of a long visit when no one wants to leave yet.
Draven Doogle must face his biggest fear, the witch Mrs. McBecky, if he wants to save his dad.
In this part of the book, Draven Doogle must face his fears and confront the witch that lives across the street. Mrs. McBecky is the only one who can help him...and he needs help more than he ever has in his life.
