Reviews

Digital illustrations predominately in purples and gold provide a soft, spooky atmosphere to give the dwelling character. This is just right for a Halloween story hour, and children will enjoy repeating the spooky sounds on every page.--Booklist
Sima's lighthearted, cartoony style and cozy palette disarm the book of any frightening elements. The gentle, upbeat vibe makes it a fair choice to remind kids that their differences from others are the key to their belonging. --Kirkus Reviews
Sima's text is more sweet than spooky, complemented by the digital illustrations' cool palette of purples, blues, and greens. Various sounds to read aloud and visual details to pore over (the anthropomorphic house's expressions, the ever-present black cat) will surely lead to repeat ­readings.--Horn Book Magazine
Sima creates a lovely twist on finding one's place in the world, told with a light touch and plenty of spooky onomatopoeia.--Publishers Weekly
* "This celebration of being true to oneself makes it a perfect addition to every library's picture book collection, and the spooky message is one that is welcome all year around."--School Library Journal, starred review
