Hannah B | 1 comments Its a thin book with Tim Burton-esque artwork. The boy's house burns down and his family is all really weird. His dad wears a back brace or is strapped into a chair I believe. He is sent to his aunts I think and in the car ride he takes off his clothes down to the long johns which is naked for them. The people in this story think that long johns are their skin. I think he sleeps in a coffin at some point.

Hannah, around what year did you read this book?

Is it a picture book or chapter book?

What caused his house to burn down?

Are there fantasy elements like vampires?

Hannah, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

A.J. | 84 comments I've been cross-referencing to try and find a book that a description reminded me of, and I came across three titles that were promising for me. I just wanted to suggest them to you in case they help you in some way because you popped up in my results.

The House on Hackman's Hill
Crazy Dangerous
The Moonchild
