The title of this book is The Curse of the Blue Figurine written by John Bellairs. This is an awesome book. This story takes place in the past. The main character's name is Jim. Jim is kind of nerdy. The problem in this story is that Jim finds this blue figurine that is cursed.
This book is a must read! This is a horrifying and cool story and is something some people can relate to. It has Lusafur in it, has awesome details like: how they described the whole story line, especially how they described how Santin was vanished back to Hell where it came from, and some people like Gothic people would like this book. All theses factors are the reasons why the story is interesting or is a must read.
John Bellairs is the author of The Curse of the Blue Figurine. John is a Gothic Mystery novel writer. He was born in 1938 and died in 1991. Before he wrote 15 books he went to the University of Chicago. John Bellairs is a great author. He has the most artistic details I have ever read.

I enjoyed this book very much. It all started when my school had a Scholastic Book fair, and then on the day I forgot to bring my money! So my friend bought the book for me since it was on a huge sale ($2.00!) and I decided to read it. At first I chose this book only because it was cheap, and I thought it would be BORING! But I was SO wrong! This book has a superior plot, a great story outline, and mostly, it is thrilling! It is about 12-year-old Johny Dixon after hearing a tale of Father Baart decided to find out if it was true. Then a mystery starts to happen where a stranger gives him a ring, but a was truly Father Baart. At the end the story ends happily, and I read it over and over again like 3 times already! My brother is reading it now, and he says so far so good. I am currently buying book by John Bellairs. Thanks for writing such a interesting book that I can't put down!

As an adult and an avid reader of children's literature, I can heartily recommend this book to adults and children alike. It is a wonderful blend of fantasy and mystery that will not only make you laugh, but make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end! Even adults can find a great deal of pleasure reading Mr. Bellairs. I'm a huge fan of J.K. Rowling and this book...in fact all of John Bellairs books...come quite close to attaining the level of entertaiment reached by the Harry Potter series. So, if you have already finished Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire (I have and it's fantastic) and you haven't a clue as to what you will read to tide you over until Ms. Rowling publishes book number 5, read The Curse of the Blue Figurine...and all of the other wonderful books by John Bellairs. You won't be disappointed, whether you are 9 or 90.

...here comes Johnny Dixon. Although I can't help but notice the new cover depicts him as sort of a blonde version of Harry. I always liked the old Edward Gorey cover better. At any rate, 11 years after I read them (I'm now 24) Bellairs' first few books for children are priceless: scary, funny, and filled with lovely little historical details.
Eventually, Bellairs' books became too formulaic, but I liked BLUE FIGURINE, as well as the follow-ups: THE MUMMY THE WILL, AND THE CRYPT, SPELL OF THE SORCERER'S SKULL, REVENGE OF THE WIZARD'S GHOST, and THE TROLLEY TO YESTERDAY. Great for kids too young for Stephen King.

I read this book as an early teen and loved the characters, the plot and the suspense. It was terrifying without being cornball, sympathetic to the characters, and written on a level that children could understand and adults could still enjoy. The mythological undertones of Father Baart and Lucifer are spine-chilling. I love this book, and it got me hooked on the series. I actually find them more enjoyable than Harry Potter. Happy reading!!

The Curse of the Blue Figurine is a super
duper book. I loved this book because it's about
magic happenings. In this story Johnny finds a
mystical statue and a letter from Father Baart.
Weird things start to happen to the young innocent
boy. Johnny thinks it's just a legend, but is it?
If you really want to find out, READ this book and
I am sure you won't regret it.

John Bellairs was one of my favorite writers when I was in Elementary School. He wrote interesting, scary mysteries that any kid would enjoy. I only wish that he wrote adult thrillers!
His stories are so good, I think that even adults would enjoy them. If you're looking for a good author for your child, get his stories!!
