Klassen's signature illustrations breathe new life into this old Tyrolean folk tale about a runaway little girl and the new ( and unusual ) friend she makes during her travels. This story of trust, friendship and found family is a delight at any age. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
I absolutely LOVE this series! When Theo, Alexander and Wil suddenly find themselves left with strange Aunt Saffronia for the summer, things rapidly become very weird. Creepy characters, odd occurrences and disquieting destinations make for a mystery series that is wonderfully gothic and very, very funny. Highest recommend. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner

If you think the idea of four horror authors spending the night in a haunted house is cliche, you are in for a surprise. It's what happens to them after they leave the next morning that is truly terrifying. This book scared me from start to finish...and what a twist ending! ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
