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?
Frequently bought together
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
* "This celebration of being true to oneself makes it a perfect addition to every library’s picture book collection, and the spooky message is one that is welcome all year around." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"I'm a house. People are supposed to live in me!"
But no one did! She was worried that maybe she was...
House tried to settle her squeaks and creaks to appeal to a family that would make this house a home, but when a gust of wind howls through her roof, she realizes that she likes the house she is, haunted or not, and wishes for a family that will appreciate her as she is.
Jessie Sima personifies a house and makes you fall in love with it. Her charming, detailed illustrations draw you in. I love how she shows the foundation groaning by combining words and art.
Check out this book today and see if this house can become a home, haunted or not.
