lthough this book features plenty of illustrations, it also has a more complex storyline that makes it an excellent read for youngsters who are ready to move into plot driven adventures.
rs. Peck is looking for a new house but she doesn't have a lot of money to spend. That's when she finds the Haunted House Agency that specializes in nice, inexpensive homes that just have one small problem…they happen to be haunted!
eeping an open mind, Mrs. Peck learns some of the ins and outs of living in a haunted house before her agent shows her Trembly Manor, the Violet Villa, Quivery Castle, and the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage which is haunted by a former pirate.
ne of these domiciles was so utterly charming that Mrs. Peck purchased it, moved in and lived happily ever after.
his clever and unusual tale about haunted houses will not only be a favorite around Halloween but it will probably remain high on your child's favorite title list for read aloud sessions throughout the year.
