Back of the Book Blurb #32 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Witching Hour

At midnight on the thirteenth day of each month, all of the statues came alive in the mansion until the sun came up. Old Mr. Hunt never knew it happened every night since the big storm hit. Some kind of lightning hit the mansion and brought the statues alive. They loved to frolic around the house and lawn while Old Mr. Hunt slept a deep dreamless sleep. In fact, it was the only night of the month that he felt he got a good night’s rest. Only on this night, some of the statues got a little rambunctious and scratched the Roman god’s face right before dawn. Quickly one of the lady statues ripped pieces of her robe and bandaged his face up just as the light hit the earth. When old Mr. Hunt came downstairs, he noticed the damaged statue. Find out what he does next.   (148 words)

That's an angle I never thought of, statues and their after-hours shenanigans!
