The Spell of the Sorcerer's Skull is the third book in the Johnny Dixon series, published in 1984.

Soon after Johnny Dixon and Professor Childermass cross paths with the long-lost Childermass Clock the professor goes missing.  Johnny has but a few clues, including the dollhouse room of the clock and a lighted, menacing jack-o'-lantern.  Johnny, Fergie, and Father Higgins go on a harrowing chase to the deserted islands of Maine where, waiting for them, is something far more terrifying than they could have imagined.
