Reading Level: Ages 10 and up. Nick and Joey May, brothers, troublemakers, and adventurers... When older brother Nick accidentally hits a baseball into the yard of Miss Yaga, who everyone in the neighborhood knows is an evil witch who loves to turn little boys into creatures that are never to be seen again, the brothers find themselves on the quest of a lifetime. Joey's mouth, which never shuts, gets him in trouble, as the neighbor is older and more evil than the neighborhood children could have ever guessed! The May Boys must enter a maze to find a mysterious Blue Rose, which is the only object that can save Joey, who has been cursed by the evil Miss Yaga, who can only undo the curse if the brothers find the Blue Rose in time. Even if they find their prize, they may not survive the dangers of The Maze.
