About the Author

From his much-loved debut, How to Catch a Star, Oliver Jeffers has gone on to create a collection of award-winning and bestselling picture books, which have been translated all over the globe, including the #1 New York Times bestseller and TIME Best Book of the Year Here We Are, as well as the companion What We'll Build. He is also the illustrator of the smash hits The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home, both written by Drew Daywalt. His fine art is world-renowned and his dip-art exhibitions are a much sought-after event. Oliver is from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and young children.

Reviews

"Jeffers adds loose line drawings to found black-and-white photographs of an 18th-century mansion that has plenty of dark corners--the narrator climbs a library ladder, lingers in hallways, and peers in cupboards and under a bed. Since readers decide when the ghosts appear, anxiety-inducing suspense isn't an issue in this conceptually comic treat that puts the reader in control."--Publishers Weekly

"Mr. Jeffers has pulled off quite a trick here: He has managed to turn Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House" into a cheery, unthreatening seek-and-find for children."--The Wall Street Journal

"Unquestionably eerie but still light-hearted."--The New York Times Book Review
