Mystery fans who enjoy a few chills on the side will love curling up over winter break, or any time, with this charming story and its colorful cast of oddball characters. The folklore and locations in Ghosts of Greenglass House are richly imagined and so vividly evoked you might be tempted to search online to see if Nagspeake is real. Now author Kate Milford has reunited all of these elements, which made the first book such a delight.

Like the first, this second book would be great for reading aloud, but tweens who love mysteries and are strong, independent readers will enjoy reading it themselves, too. The ending is satisfying, although fans might wish for more of a cliffhanger as the promise of more to come from Greenglass House. As it is, they'll just have to keep listening for the bell to announce the next adventure.
