Reader reviews

The book was very mysterious and exciting. I really liked the cover of the book. It was very spooky! How can Mr.Hubble be so cruel and wicked and heartless? It was really fantastic.

Great Book
I liked this book because it was exciting. I liked the part when they where ghosts because it was cool. Jen Aged 6

Spooky House of Shadows
I liked this book because it was exciting and spooky. My favourite part of the book was when they found the box in the attic. I didn't like Mr. Hubble because he was a cruel and wicked man.

The House of Shadows
I really liked The House of Shadows by Karen Dolby because it was a very mysterious story. Mr Hubble was a horrible evil man. I really liked the drawings of the old chest and newspaper cuttings in the book.

It is a really good spooky story!
The House of Shadows is a great book. You can read about spooky mist and horrible characters. It is a brilliant Halloween time story. You should read it!
