The girl who lives in this house is pretty sure it's haunted, but she's looked everywhere and can't find the ghosts! Maybe a reader could help her out? (This is 10/10 the cleverest use of tracing paper I've ever seen, holy crow).

Fern gives grounded, real world suggestions by breathing fresh life into attachment research with roots in the 60s and 70s.

One of my all-time favorite books, and the start to an absolutely amazing series. Fablehaven is the perfect summer fantasy adventure in the style of Narnia.
