From the bestselling creator of Not Quite Narwhal comes a delightfully spooky story about an old house who wants to be a home...even if her new family isn't what she expected.

House has a problem.

She's a little spooky. She's a little cobwebby. Oh, no! What if she's haunted?

She's not sure, but...her hinges creak. Her pipes bang. And on windy days, the branches scritch-scratch at her windows. She tries to hold her breath and be as still as possible. If she's on her best behavior, maybe a family will move in.

How will House ever find a family that doesn't mind being haunted?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Digital illustrations predominately in purples and gold provide a soft, spooky atmosphere to give the dwelling character. This is just right for a Halloween story hour, and children will enjoy repeating the spooky sounds on every page. -- Booklist
Sima's lighthearted, cartoony style and cozy palette disarm the book of any frightening elements. The gentle, upbeat vibe makes it a fair choice to remind kids that their differences from others are the key to their belonging. -- Kirkus Reviews
Sima's text is more sweet than spooky, complemented by the digital illustrations' cool palette of purples, blues, and greens. Various sounds to read aloud and visual details to pore over (the anthropomorphic house's expressions, the ever-present black cat) will surely lead to repeat readings. -- Horn Book Magazine
Sima creates a lovely twist on finding one's place in the world, told with a light touch and plenty of spooky onomatopoeia. -- Publishers Weekly
