    Having 8 Daughters, with 4 elementary school aged girls at home, who indeed have issues with keeping their room clean, this book fits in rather well without family dynamic. Wherever we have lived, we have always seemed to find some old school bus that someone has parked in the weeds or forest, and abandoned, so I have told the girls for years that the "ghost bus" will come get them, if they are bad, and don't do as they are told, or keep things clean, so reading the story with them hit home for Having 8 Daughters, with 4 elementary school aged girls at home, who indeed have issues with keeping their room clean, this book fits in rather well without family dynamic. Wherever we have lived, we have always seemed to find some old school bus that someone has parked in the weeds or forest, and abandoned, so I have told the girls for years that the "ghost bus" will come get them, if they are bad, and don't do as they are told, or keep things clean, so reading the story with them hit home for them. They are aged 7, 9, 10, & 12. They all paid attention, they loved the imagery that was offered in the story every now and then, and they indeed loved the changing fonts, as well as the bold that got their attention. It caused them to point and mention to each other that it was present, and at times, caused them to discuss the current spot of the story. I would imagine that the child reading this alone, would possibly experience some of the same lure into interaction, as this did in a group setting. The chapters are really short, and it gives the reader, as well as those being read to, a very quick sense of accomplishment, and a very smiling/happy feeling of satisfaction. The characters and landscape/world are very well built, they move consistently from beginning to end, letting the younger reader follow along seamlessly. Treasure and adventure, mystery and suspense. Ya go to classes, and learn to make beds the right way, while interacting with people who's names share the common theme of Tannin Yerhyde... The paperback is a little overpriced at $11.99, I myself would not go over $9.99 for it. The cover is of excellent quality. The pages are also nice quality, thick and sturdy. The type is dark and clear. the typeset changes periodically to play into the imagination, with titles of chapters being a font different than the body of the content. There are words that change font, and appear in bold, that catch the eye, that add to the flavor of the story. There are black and white little images that pop up here and there that add a wonderful visual to it. I am just not feeling a chapter book this early in, being priced 1 or 2 dollars what I am used to paying. But that is strictly me. Material wise, quality wise, it is, at least, a ten dollar value.

    I'm a fifth grade teacher and I'm always looking for a good read to add to my classroom library. This came up on a list of recommendations and I thought I'd take a chance on it. I'm glad I did.

There are a couple of interactions where the words used made me question whether or not it's right for an elementary classroom. My students can still be pretty immature. I'm positive it's perfect for middle schoolers though. I personally loved the intertwining of Saffron's story, but I wish there was something at the beginning of the chapters to indicate the shift from Holly's story to Saffron's story. That might make it easier for younger readers to understand. Overall, it's a 3.5 that I'm bumping up to a 4. I'm not ruling this book out as an addition to my classroom library because I enjoyed it and that means that many of my students will, too. I think it will just come with some disclaimers about the words they may encounter while reading.

    This was the cutest book! I have had this book on my shelf for about a year. I finally pulled it off and gave it a read. I met the author I believe at Utopia last year and picked this book up. I wish I would have got the series. I loved this book. I starts with a small girl that her mother told her to make her bed and she tried and tried to get help from her siblings to help her. She was warned by them that if she didn't make the bed, she would go the Children's Horrible House. It was too late. S This was the cutest book! I have had this book on my shelf for about a year. I finally pulled it off and gave it a read. I met the author I believe at Utopia last year and picked this book up. I wish I would have got the series. I loved this book. I starts with a small girl that her mother told her to make her bed and she tried and tried to get help from her siblings to help her. She was warned by them that if she didn't make the bed, she would go the Children's Horrible House. It was too late. She didn't make her bed on time and off she goes with two men that look like men in black, she was off to "The Children's Horrible House" There she was made to learn how to clean and make beds all day long until she got it right but in the process of the house she began to hear things and she became curious to find out the mystery behind this house. After finding a book in the library, that she was the only one to ever find, things became interesting. She was made fun of and was an outcast until she made a few friends but not without it's difficulties. This book is full of labyrinths, mystery books, fun names of teachers, and cleaning. I would recommend this for any teen.

    This is the kind of book that reminds me of my childhood. It's complete with beautiful imagery, imagination, scary (but not too scary) settings and adults behaving badly, clever lure, and heart that makes me think about little Holly long after I've finished reading her story. This is a wonderful book that should be on every child's bookshelf so they can read it again and again. This is the kind of book that reminds me of my childhood.

    The Children Horrible House was a non stop adventure. My son and I started reading it together but I couldn't wait to see what happens I ended up finishing it before him. Each twist I encountered surprised me and left me wanting to know more! I highly recommend this book to either read with your child or on your own! I can’t wait to read book number two!

They get sent by their parent to The Children's Horrible House for their disobedience where they are retrained by staff like Major Whoopins, and Director S. Pankins to make beds and clean rooms to perfection as well as be trained in astronomy, horticulture, and meteorology. You can follow this wonderful adventure Holly has gotten herself into along with her friend Coriander, that she met on the bus on the way to The Children's Horrible House, and friends Danley, Staniel, and Clover, whom she met once she arrived, as they try and figure out first, the story of the ghost and second, the mystery of the treasure of the North Star Estate, and Hawthorne North Star. This was a great book that was so interesting with all the great adventure, suspense, and cool facts. It has short chapters, which will keep even the most reluctant of readers engrossed. I even hear that there might be a return trip in the future, I sure hope so I really enjoyed this book a lot.

I didn't feel very connected with the characters or the story. The magic was barely touched on, and the whole setting was very 2D. The characters were so eh and I only really liked the early chapters about Saffron but about half way through those chapters, it got boring. The language was much too old for it to be a younger child and the words that Holly used were hardly believable that she would know those words. She even said she didn't do well in school... I'm going to read the sequel, so hopefully that book is somewhat better than this one....The ending had me a bit intrigued but eh
