House of Madame M (The)
by Clotilde Perrin
Age Range: 6-8
A perfect book for Halloween and all those long winter nights from the French author and illustrator Clotilde Perrin, creator of the bestselling Inside the Villains. This time the large-format lift-the-flaps book visits the haunted house of the mysterious Madame M. Who is she and what lurks inside her house? The exploration begins. First a tentative look in the living room, then perhaps a visit to the kitchen. Maybe it’s a good idea to have a look in the bathroom too. Do you dare visit the remotest room in the house where Madame M has her den?
Whether you open the wardrobe or chest of drawers, look in the suitcase, behind the door or tucked under the furniture, there is so much to uncover amongst the interactive 25 flaps and pull tabs that will make even the bravest shiver.
The House of Madame M is another exceptional and exquisitely produced pop-up book full of creepy and ghostly secrets. Perrin has provided a scary tale, translated by Daniel Hahn, which is full of off-beat humour, meticulous detail and spine-chilling surprises.
