"Jeffers adds loose line drawings to found black-and-white photographs of an 18th-century mansion that has plenty of dark corners—the narrator climbs a library ladder, lingers in hallways, and peers in cupboards and under a bed. Since readers decide when the ghosts appear, anxiety-inducing suspense isn’t an issue in this conceptually comic treat that puts the reader in control."--Publishers Weekly
“Mr. Jeffers has pulled off quite a trick here: He has managed to turn Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House” into a cheery, unthreatening seek-and-find for children.”--The Wall Street Journal
“Unquestionably eerie but still light-hearted."--The New York Times Book Review
