Kimberly | 4 comments Help!! I'm trying to recall a book I read in the 80's in elementary school. All I remember is there is a "monster" on the cover, like a Frankenstein looking guy. It's a drawn cover. Book was for prob 4-6 grades. I know I ordered it thru Scholastic or a similar book ordering school thing. I wanna say it had Shady or Acres or Shadyside - something to that affect in the title. The monster is like in the shadows & there's a house on the cover too. I have Googled any & everything to no avail. I don't really remember the plot. I think a family moves to this "shady acres" place & the kid(s) swear there's a ghost (monster on cover) haunting it.

The Figure in the Shadows (Lewis Barnavelt, #2) by John Bellairs
