I bought this book for our school library two years ago, when it was published. (It won the Red House Children’s Book Awards in 2013) It is a book I only display in the library during the run up to Halloween; using it for story time in the library.
The children love it! Every page is filled with pop-ups and flaps, as you explore the monstrous mansion and offers a twist at the end of book.
Hearing the children’s shrieks, screams and giggles, as I read, really brings a smile to my face and makes me realise how important reading aloud and story sharing is.
