This is supposed to be scary, but I wasn't scared. But it does remind you that there are rules you have to follow.

This book is fantastic. Fun for kids and adults alike.

A cabin in the woods provides a traditional setting for terror in this tale of Ian and his family, who are vacationing in a cabin with curiously strict rules for visitors. Being tidy and obedient, Ian is horrified when his unruly sister Jenny systematically breaks each rule…though it's not until she opens the forbidden red door that things really get hairy, and Ian has to ask himself: is there a rule against abandoning your sister to be eaten by monsters? Share this book wherever silly, pseudo-scary reads are popular, and also be sure to pick up Aaron Reynolds' Creepy Carrots! and Elys Dolan's The Mystery of the Haunted Farm.

Nice book to encourage sibling love.

Just spooky enough for kids, with a feel-good ending that will satisfy everyone. The illustrations of the house are wonderfully creepy, but nothing here will give you nightmares! A nice choice for kids who demand scary...but not too scary...stories!
