Mr. Jones created a wonderfully entertaining story that I think children of all ages will enjoy. His storyline was quite engrossing and I found myself rooting on Oz Chambers while he embarked on investigating his own family house. He firmly believed it was haunted and he wanted to find out himself if the very noises he heard were that of some deceased person that lived in the house years prior. I think this is a perfect pick for Halloween or any time of year. Well done, Mr. Jones!
Oz Chambers lives in a haunted house. His mother wants to move, but Oz believes that the old place is too full of mystery to leave. When he and his friends hear ghostly footsteps, they decide to investigate the house’s eerie reputation. But what Oz hasn’t bargained for is that he’s not alone in his quest and that solving Penwurt’s puzzles will uncover a murky secret, and the chilling realisation that nothing is quite what it seems.
