Horn Book Review

Twelve dark photographs of spooky scenes in and around a haunted house are paired with blandly rhyming couplets that prompt readers to search for numerous objects hidden in the double-page spreads. Similar to the previous books in the series, this volume will hold some appeal for picture puzzle fans. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010.
