Grim Hill Mysteries for Tweens being Adapted for Television

The Secret of Grim Hill by Linda DeMeulemeester
More information about the book

In a press release from earlier this month, Toronto-based Wizard Hat Productions is developing an animated television series based on the tween mysteries in the Grim Hill series written by Linda DeMeulemeester. (The books' publisher, Lobster Press, has a copy.) The first book in the series -- there are four to date -- The Secret of Grim Hill was published in 2007.

Twenty-six 30-minute episodes are expected to be produced.

In the opening book, Cat Peters has just transferred to Darkmont High and is already desperate to get out. When she hears that Grimoire, the private school nearby, is offering scholarships to the winners of a Halloween soccer match, Cat jumps at the chance.

Her little sister, Sookie, and their bookworm neighbor try to tell her there’s something … just not right about the old school on the hill, and their worries are confirmed when they uncover a mystery about an entire soccer team that disappeared many years ago.

Further investigation leads Cat to a book about ancient Celtic myth and fairy lore, and she soon realizes that there is something truly wicked at work inside the walls of Grimoire.

Read the first chapter(s) of The Secret of Grim Hill below.
