Triumphantly scary It's not scary in a horrifying way, but scary and fun for kids. It's a book for kids, and says its for preschool age, but maybe it should be for kids a little older. I read the book and then went back and read it aloud, which made it more powerful. Amazing prose that tells a story, and brings the reader in the imaginative work of art. "Shadows chasing, heart racing, pulse thumping to the core, until a gasp of air released her, falling ..." The graphics were amazing, shown in black and white, which adds to the quaint scariness of the story. Florence is a character you soon won't forget.

"They dared, declared that Florence was scared, to enter the house on Flattop Hill." It is rumored that people may go into the house on Flattop Hill, but once inside they never return. Florence becomes drawn to the idea of acting on a dare. As she lies in bed she is taunted by the wind and she soon finds herself wandering the halls of this eerie house which has beckoned her. The Stumps of Flattop Hill, written and illustrated by Kenneth Kit Lamug, is a deliciously macabre children's picture book which will capture the imaginations of young readers. Children will thrill at the story of Florence as, trance-like, she defies common sense by acting on a dare. Does she do it to prove she's not afraid; or is there another reason she embarks upon this frightful encounter? Regardless, we are reminded that there are consequences to one's actions. Hauntingly reminiscent of tales by the brothers Grimm, The Stumps of Flattop Hill will appeal to readers who enjoy a more unique spin on children's picture books.
