The Dollhouse Murders is about a girl named Amy. She is sick and tired of looking after her sister and gets to live with her Aunt Clare down the street. Her aunt has a beautiful dollhouse in the attic and strange things start to happen with the dollhouse. The dolls are moving by themselves trying to tell Amy something. Are they trying to tell her about a murder? Her aunt reveals a shocking murder that happened a long time ago.
One of my favorite parts is when Aunt Clare tells Amy the story of who murdered her parents. Are they the same murder? Read the book and find out!
I recommend this book to both 4th and 5th graders; also to kids who like murder mysteries. I give this book a two thunbs up. I’d also recommend another book by Betty Ren Write, like Getting Rid of Marjori.
