By Christine R. Wilson on June 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
Better Haunted Homes and Gardens is clever and quirky, and it's just as enjoyable for parents as it is for children. The heroine, Ivy Spookerton, is looking for a perfect haunted house in which she can make a home for herself and her bug-friends. She follows her realtor through haunted house after haunted house, looking for her perfect new residence. Kristin Margiotta's gorgeous illustrations add the final touch to this unique children's book.

My daughter has always been a voracious reader and it is increasingly difficult to find clever, fun and original children's books that don't bore her (and me) after a few reads. BETTER HAUNTED HOMES & GARDENS is among the finest children's books I have added to my daughter's library. The artwork is stupendous -- think Tim Burton's upcoming ALICE IN WONDERLAND film -- and the writing is imaginative and thoughtful. What kid wouldn't want to visit Pumpkinville and learn about the escapades of Mrs. Wrinklechin, Mr. McBooson and Monsieur Monstir? Highly recommended.

This little story is delightful, and the art work is really fun. I hope there will be many more Ivy Spookerton books that I can share with my grandchildren!

Clever and beautiful! This children's book will charm readers of all ages. Ivy's journey to find a new home brings her to a house unlike any she's ever seen. More amazing are the stories Ivy learns about its old owner Viathan the Magician.

Kristen Margiotta's art is stunning--I want a print for my wall!

And Jennifer Barnes manages a wonderfully in-depth tale that appeals to audiences on all levels. I would love to see this turned into a series!
