The Dollhouse Murders by Betty Ren Write

ISBN# 0-8234-0497-8

    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.

    Do you like mysterys? I do too. This one was really good. It pulled me in. I don’t like it when dolls move on their own or seem to. What other mysterys have you read?

  2. Marisa

    Some other mystery’s I have read are part of Creature from the Black Lagoon and quite a few books by R.l.Stine(he does murder books too ) and Christopher Paul Curtis.My favorite mystery book I have read is Shakespeare’s Secret by Elise Broach.What is your favorite book?

    Marissa,
    I have read some of the Creature of the Black Lagoon stories. I am also familiar with R.L. Stine.
    I have read some fantastic books. I can’t say I have a favorite as I enjoy most the stories I read while I am reading them and then discover new books to enjoy with my very next new read. I am going to check out Elise Broach book you recommend. My favorite mystery writer of all time is Agatha Christie. She is a deceased English author with some unusual detectives such as a meddling grandmother type and a Belgian detective. She also wrote a short story about a doll that moves on its own. Many of her books have been made into movies and have been published in different languages around the world. Thanks for the response. Keep reading.
