The Stumps of Flattop Hill by Kenneth Kit Lamug

They dared Florence to enter the haunted house on top of the hill. She is frightened, but Florence musters the courage to go inside. As she makes her way up to the top she finds many ghastly things along the way. Will she make it back out or be turned into a stump forever? The Stumps of Flattop Hill is a macabre tale of a little girl who enters the town s legendary haunted house in the face of fear. A dark tale for children in the tradition of the Brother s Grimm, it calls to mind the provocative illustration style of Edward Gorey. Scary and entertaining, this book challenges the idea of what children s books can be." @goodreads



 I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.

Well this author nailed it for me when they saw what kind of children's books I like, this one is a short and dark little story and I loved it.

Poor Florence gets dared by other kids to go to the house on Flattop Hill. Okay, once again people, don't do dares! Anyhoo...


So poor Florence lays in bed thinking about the house she can see from her window! DON'T DO IT!


But, she does. Florence goes up to the house and finds some really strange things inside. I have to say I love the graphics in the book and all of the things that Florence sees while inside!

In the end, she should have just stayed home.
