really liked it

This book scared the tar out of me when I was ten. I could barely fall asleep at night but I loved it. I used it as a read aloud to my fourth graders and they would BEG each day to hear more. Occasionally I would look up from my reading to see 20 horrified faces with their eyes wide open in anticipation of what would come next. Plus cool drawings by Edward Gorey.

Esmeralda Rupp-Spangle Yeah the "new look" advertised by this edition was just so... lame. The gorey pix were what drew me to Bellairs in the first place. I must have read every single one of his books, but this was by far the best, and the first.
