In the Haunted House
By Eve Bunting
Illustrated By Susan Meddaugh   

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

        "Give me your hand, you’re as brave as can be! I know you’re not Frightened, but stay close to me."
     This story follows the two main characters through an actual haunted house, where they see many typical Halloween characters. Witches, bats, and ghosts, just to name a few, are all found in this rhythmic tale by Eve Bunting. The illustrator, Susan Meddaugh, adds another twist to this story by not letting the reader see the main characters until the final page of the book! The children I read this book to couldn’t wait to see who went into this haunted house. They noticed that the character with the big shoes seemed somewhat more scared then the character with the small shoes, but why?
     " I know you’re not frightened, but still... we could go. No one would notice. ‘No,’ you say? ‘No’?"
     When you read this book to younger children, there are plenty of ways to get them involved. My 2-5 year olds enjoyed trying to guess who the main characters were and also what type of creatures they would see next. As we neared the end of the story no, one had guessed correctly as to their identities. What a funny surprise it was when I turned the last page! The children were in stitches!
      My 6-8 year olds enjoyed reading this book to themselves as well. The rhythm of the words made it easy for the beginning readers to follow. They too couldn’t figure out the main characters’ identities, and they were even laughing at the end!
      Does your curiosity have you wondering? Sorry, but you’ll have to step into the house where the scary ones hide to find out whom and what is inside!
