Annie was warned not to go to the creepy Montgomery mansion...and maybe she wouldn't have if her best friend hadn't dared her. But Annie isn't afraid of anything. Not bats, not spiders, and certainly not some haunted house. Or is she?
"The simple text is great for reading aloud, and the big double-page paintings with neon-colored images against a black background, show the brave girl's scary journey down the dark, empty street in the howling wind....When she finally gets to the brooding mansion, she hears whispers, but she dares to open the door -- and the last page folds out -- to a real surprise. Even when they know the cozy end, preschoolers will enjoy going back to those deliciously shivery moments, when ghostly creatures loom in the dark." -- Hazel Rochman, Booklist
