What I loved: The interactive elements and large size of this book are delightful. This would be great for middle grade readers who enjoy Halloween and don't mind picking up a (kind of) picture book. There are so many things to explore on each page that this could keep children busy for a while. The idea of touching being forbidden with so much clearly made for touching adds some delight to the exploration.
What left me wanting more: Not so much problematic as just a warning, but this book is very creepy with skeletons and decomposing things in the compost bin and all sorts of creepy-crawlies. For this reason, the book may be better for older readers who are just beginning to explore things along the "horror" genre lines.
Final verdict: Great for older readers who enjoy the macabre, THE HOUSE OF MADAME M is an unique and interactive exploration through a haunted house.
