Raise your hand if you remember watching the dramatization of John Bellair’s great YA novel, The House with a Clock in its your hand up if you then tracked down and read his other novel series, all what would now be called “urban fantasy” but then were just great stories with a dose of magic, .   The Face in the Frost was published in hardcover by Macmillan in , with quirky pen-and-ink illustrations by his friend Marilyn Fitschen that reinforced the alternating whimsy and dread of the story. The book did well enough for Bellairs to turn to full-time writing.

By the author of the lively St. Fidgeta and Other Parodies, this is very modest Tolkienesque following the adventures of two not terribly wizard wizards—Prospero, a bassoon playing bumbler, and his buddy, the monkish Roger Bacon. Prospero's house has been under siege by a weird assortment of grisly phantoms. Prospero is running out of charms and his sarcastic magic . Dive deep into John Bellairs' The Face in the Frost with extended analysis, commentary, and discussion. Prospero finally remembers the spell he must use to destroy Melichus and the evil book.
