R.W. Ridley’s The Takers, a spooky thriller -

hirteen-year-old Oz Griffin knows it’s his fault that the Takers are eating everyone in sight. He also knows that a comic book written by a neighborhood boy is the key to defeating them. But every time he and his band of survivors try to read the comic book, the Takers draw closer. Can they get to the end of the story before the Takers devour them? Author R. W . Ridley won a well-deserved IPPY Award for this first book in the Oz Chronicles; Book Two is also now on the shelves. Kirkus Discoveries says the author's work "recalls both Stephen King’s The Stand and L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz."
