really liked it
bookshelves: middle-grade
Read from February 11 to 25, 2010

This should work well for our neighborhood. The ideas about art and the studiously aloof, but loving parents are a perfect match for our overly-academic customers. The story is a fun one that will be a delight to share with kids.

I'd pair this in a display with Agee's INCREDIBLE PAINTING OF FELIX CLOUSSEAU.

Several excellent kid critic reviews are coming in for this. Here's the first one:

In my own words: There’s something odd about the McMartin House, and everyone knows it. Poor Olive Dunwoody; she has to move there. And one thing’s for sure, it’s not going to be easy settling in. If you like suspense, adventure, and children’s horror all in one book, you’ll be staying up late reading this book.

And, after having dinner with Jacqueline, I'm happy to be her GoodReads Fan. She's a keeper!
