Synopses & Reviews
Are you lost? Come in! You’re in luck — there’s no one here just now. Shhh… Be as quiet as you can, and very, very careful! In The House of Madame M, we explore a strange house: hallway, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Each room is full of surprises to make even the bravest shiver. Are we in the house of an ogre? A witch? Something else altogether?
This visit to Madame M’s brings the thrill of finding what lurks in the wardrobe, behind the door, tucked under the furniture. Full of humor and detail, it will mesmerize readers of all ages.

"Not since Jan Pienkowski’s Haunted House (1979) has a pop-up treatment of the theme been so satisfying.The most, and best, (pop-up) haunted house in decades." Kirkus (Starred Review)
"The House of Madame M is a perfect memento mori for the young – and the young-at-heart." The Source
