    " I remember that this book was well written enough to freak me out a little, and it wasn't even a horror book. I was a sensitive child. I paused for a little bit before playing with doll house stuff...then got over and just embraced and loved the story. Another one I want my kids to read. "

    " One of my friends suggested this book to me and I enjoyed it. I think its very creative,but I wish I would have read it when I was a kid. The only down fall to this book is that it is stereo-typical. I would recommend it to elementary children. This book honestly reminds me of Toy-Story. "
