This is a deliciously chilling tale, with healthy doses of humor and compassion thrown in for good measure. Edward Gorey's unmistakable pen and ink style (as seen in many picture books, including The Shrinking of Treehorn and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats) perfectly complements John Bellairs's wry, touching story of a lonely boy, his quirky uncle, and the ghost of mansions past. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes horror fantasies.
His uncle Jonathan is this wonderfully strange man who lives in a wonderfully strange mansion with a wonderfully strange neighbor by the name of Mrs. Zimmerman.
The brilliant hiring of Edward Gorey as the illustrator of this book is to be commended.
This made the perfect present for my sister and the book is just like the original one we read form the library when I was a kid. She couldn't believe I remembered this book. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
