Great book for younger teens/children. I loved it when I read it in elementary school. I would say to beware not to read to kids if they have nightmares easily b/c it can be a little scary to think about alone in the dark.

I used to have this book when I was a kid and loved it. I read it several times. It's a great mystery book for pre-teens.

I bought and read this book to judge its worthiness for my grandchildren. I think my nine- and twelve-year olds will get a kick out of it.

AMY IS FASCINATED BY THE OLD DOLLHOUSE SHE FINDS IN THE ATTIC. IT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE HOUSE SHE'S STAYING IN WITH HER AUNT, DOWN TO THE TINIEST DETAIL. BUT STRANGE THINGS SEEM TO HAPPEN IN THE DOLLHOUSE--THINGS AMY CAN'T EXPLAIN. DOLLS MOVE FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER WHEN THERE'S NO ONE THERE TO MOVE THEM. DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE BY THEMSELVES. AND WHEN AMY GOES UP TO THE ATTIC IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, THE DOLLHOUSE IS FILLED WITH A GHOSTLY LIGHT....

AMY KNOWS THE DOLLS ARE TRYING TO TELL HER SOMETHING--BUT SHE'S TERRIFIED TO FIND OUT WHAT. COULD THEIR MOVEMENTS BE CONNECTED TO THE UNSOLVED MYSTERIES THAT HAPPENED YEARS BEFORE?
