Overview

In 1981, Carole Marsh (a real writer) took four real kids on a visit to the famous Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. They went to learn about George W. Vanderbilt, the Victorian Era, O. Henry, and more. There was only one little problem... First one kid disappeared. Then another! Then, so did a priceless antique chess set! There was the creepy Halloween room, the very scary basement, the eerie attic, and all those gape-mouthed gargoyles. Oh yeah, and all that blood! And did I say that the kids got trapped in the mile-long heating system? Did I say ONE LITTLE problem?! How about LOTS of BIG problems!

I been to biltmore house before and I can tell you every fact about the house. If it was me to stay locked up in the house one night I would be scared. This story is thrilling, you never knows what happens. A+

At first I was upset that there was no "Christina" or "Grant" characters, but it is a really good book. It talks about interesting facts in Biltmore and it is that type of book where you do not know what is going to happen. Like one minute somthing bad, the other good. But over all it is for 7-12 year olds. :) Great book!!!!! Carol Marsh has done it again!!! Review by Isabel Adams

This book is great and my kids liked it so much they actually asked to go there instead of going to Disney World this year!!! To keep my kids entertained is a large task, but they couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it.

I have been to biltmore twice! The acutal place! Its so beutifal! I love it. Built 100 years ago, with so many rooms, and lots of other exiting things. I wish i lived in it! When you go there, you can only take pictures of the outside of biltmore. You cant tak epictues of the inside.(poo:() great and amazing place!

I love Harry Potter, but I think that kids need to learn about historic places in america too and what better way to teach them than to make it fun and interesting. In a time when Patriotism is high these books definately fill the order.
