Currently reading this to the kids... They seem to like it, though I am a bit preoccupied with the way the author throws the word "demons" around. I think this story uses the Invisibility Cloak idea before Harry Potter.

It's like one of the games I played as kid, but written as a story. An awesome tribute to a boy's imagination.

It's been a year since I've read "The house in the snow" and I can still see everything that happened in that book because of how well it's sensory details are.

I didn't read this book the first time I saw it. I put it down the first few attempts I gave it too. Once I read past page seven, I couldn't put it down. It felt like I knew every kid in the book, and I could really relate to them.

I would give this book to anybody who enjoys good writing and illustration, but mainly to anyone who loves

After receiving a bunch of used books for children/youth, I decided to read them before recommending them to my grandchildren. This one was terrible! I don't know what was worse - the story itself or the way it was written. Plus, it had a ridiculous conclusion!

A great mystery about two young boys and their adventure that takes place in "The house and the snow". The only thing I don't like about this book is the reference to beer several times in the book.

I loved this book so much I read it twice! (I was about 10 years old). Really good, mystery for school age kids. This came out waaay before Harry Potter and used the invisibility clock first!
