Dr. Fell and the Playground of DOOM by David Neilsen

Genres: Children's Books


When the mysterious Dr. Fell moves into the abandoned house down the road, he immediately has a playground built to win over the neighborhood kids. But the doctor’s intentions are far from benign, and the children and their parents fall deeper and deeper under his spell. Only Jerry, Nancy, and Gail, the first three children who met him, seem immune to the pull of his extravagant wonderland.

Soon they start noticing all the injuries on the field of play that seem to heal with miraculous speed under the care of the creepy doctor. How does he do it? And why does he seem to grow younger and more agile with every passing day? It is up to Jerry, Nancy, and Gail to prove to their parents and the neighborhood at large that Dr. Fell is evil incarnate. But how can they break his dangerous hold without falling victim to this mass-mesmerizing monster themselves?
