This pop out book takes us through different rooms in a haunted house. We follow a couple of mice as they make their way to the attic.

I'm not sure it really matters.

[13] Just as I have Christmas books that I break out and read every year in November and December, I have this one book that I read every year as part of my All Hallow's Read/Halloween Bingo/spoopy-months celebration (spooky-adjacent sorts of things that aren't scary but are amusing). In 2005 Pienkowski contracted a civil partnership with David Walser, with whom he has been in a relationship for over forty years.

He was commissioned to provide designs for Théâtre de Complicité, Beauty and the Beast for the Royal Ballet, and Sleeping Beauty at Disneyland Paris. Revisit - if you dare! - one of the best-loved pop-up books of all time, now more gleefully ghoulish then ever with the addition of several spooky surprises. Along with The Great Green Mouse Disaster, this was one of the few books that I would hunt down in my local library as a child.
