"Once upon a time there was dark, dark moor. On the moor there was a dark, dark wood. In the wood there was a dark, dark house". Young listeners will be kept on the edge of their seats as the journey continues up dark stairways through hidden passages, around sharp corners and behind windblown curtains. "A splendid choice for group story time".--School Library Journal. American Bookseller Pick-of-the Lists. Full-color illustrations.
