If you are a person that likes scary but not too scary books, then The Haunted House, by Jane Yolen and Martin H.Greenberg is the book for you. The setting of the book is in an old rundown house. In the story, there is more than one main character. There are several ghosts that haunt the house. Each ghost scares people in their own way. The book starts off with a girl named Lyssa and her parents, when they move into the haunted house. The first night when Lyssa goes to sleep, she hears a noise in the basement. She just ignores it, but then she hears it again. So she starts to get scared. She thinks she hears a dog crying. She gets out of bed to go get her parents who were sound asleep, but then she decides to check it out herself. When she goes to the basement, she sees…? Read this book to find out what she finds. I would recommend this book to kids age 9-11.
