I totally love the cover of this book! It is just the cutest little picture.
is a really great children's book. Spanelli and her mom Ann moved into a
huge old creepy house called Hamley House. Spanelli works at their
antique shop called The Museum of Oddities. How cool is that name. I
want to go to a shop like that and see what I could find.
Spanelli and her mom find some things in their new house they could sell
at the shop or just keep. One of the things is an old painting with
children in it. The painting is kinda creepy. Everything in the house is
kinda creepy to Spanelli.
Spanelli's cousin Eugene comes to
stay a week with her while his parents go out of town. Boy are they in
for an adventure. You see, Spanelli's mom hires this woman to come and
homeschool Spanelli and she is a weird lady. Eugene has to join in on
the lessons as well since he's there for a week.
Spanelli's mom leaves for two days to go check out an old classic car. I
mean who leaves their kids with a woman that they have known for like a
Anyway, there are some really spooky things that happen,
ghosts come forward and it's up to Spanelli and Eugene to save them. And
sweet Miss Crew, the teacher, is not so sweet after all!
think this is just a wonderful little book and I would recommend to all
parents with children that like creepy little ghost stories. And me
being an adult I'm guessing you can read it too :)
