”[Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of “The Haunted House” by IB Gumnut.]
4 out of 4 stars
Children are frightened by mystical beings. But sometimes, it can be a source of fun for them. The Haunted House was written by I. B. Gumnut. The author’s story of a haunted house inspired this children’s book.
Some kids were afraid of a certain house because they believed a ghost haunted it. In the house, there was a mouse who was responsible for this continuous terrifying experience. But Mary was bold, and she would discover whether it was a ghost or a mere trick.
I believe the illustrator did an excellent job by aiding the interpretation of the story. In other words, the pictures were necessary, as they explained the story. Virtual learners will rightly enjoy this book.
The positive thing about this novel was that it was written in a poetic style. I enjoyed the style of communication used by the writer. An instance was where the writer said, “An ancient piano would tinkle a tune on the night of a full and rising moon a stack of pots would come crashing down.”
What I liked most was that the book has two sides. The writer was inspired to create this story. Hence, the author revealed the fun aspect of the story and the scary part of the story. Therefore, children will likely have mixed feelings about the book. I enjoyed this aspect because it created some tension and kept me anticipating what the end will be.
The novel was not predictable, as there were some elements of suspense in the whole story. I desired to see what will eventually happen between the fearful kids and the scary ghost. This attribute will make readers very anxious.
I did not see anything I disliked about the story. Likewise, nothing was negative about the book. The book was exceptionally well edited. No error was found. Therefore, I rate this book four out of four stars. I recommend this novel to children whose attention is easily attached to suspenseful moonlight stories. Children between ages three to five will also enjoy it.
