The House with a Clock in its Walls (1974, Dell)

In addition to The House with a Clock in its Walls being Bellairs’ “first book for young readers,” it was also his first book to hit paperback. Ace first released The Face in the Frost in 1978 but it was still four years after Dell released House. The edition, on Dell’s Yearling imprint, featured all of Edward Gorey’s interior artwork but enlisted a different illustrator to create the cover.
