AN NIEA FINALIST IN THE CHAPTER BOOK CATEGORY
A family disappears in the dark of night . . .
An old abandoned mansion suddenly has a "Sold" sign in the front yard after sitting vacant for over five years. A light in the attic glows every night, and Jimmy is sure he and Mortimer see a face in the window. But no one ever notices anyone going in or out. Things get even more mysterious when Lily's cat Muffin disappears, and an anonymous ransom note is delivered. Who is in that house and what do they want?
The truth is still the truth, even if no one believes it.
Fifth book in the Mortimer and Me chapter book series for ages 6-10.
"Fourth grade can be quite a challenge. For Jimmy and his moose friend Mortimer, the fourth grade can also be a spooky adventure. In THE HOUSE ON BRIARWOOD LANE, Author Kathie McMahon brings together a sprinkle of friendship with a dose of mystery, to include science experiments and a fun classroom style. An easy read for young chapter book readers."
