A delicious spine-chilling treat for middle grade readers

In classic ghost story tradition, an exquisite tension builds. This book is a delicious, spine-chilling treat for middle grade readers. Every scary page makes it imperative to keep reading..."

What a fabulous review for Myles and the Monster Outside, from CCBC BookNews, thank you! I couldn't be more pleased. The reviewer, the wonderful writer Charis Cotter (The Swallow), really made my day. A few weeks ago, the book was nominated for a Hackmatack Award, and now this! Here are some more reviews, thanks all:
