‘The House Of Madame M,’ by Clotilde Perrin, translated by Daniel Hann.

If you’re looking for for something a little bit different this Halloween, I would strongly suggest that you purchase yourself a copy of the gloriously gothic ‘The House Of Madame M.’


Are you brave enough to enter the house of the mysterious Madame M? It’s full of creepy monsters, cobwebbed hiding places and sights to test even the bravest of souls. Peek inside the rooms of the house, with flaps to lift, doors to open and jokes to find.


This brilliant large-scale book is just the perfect balance of creepy, gross and humorous to engage even the pickiest of readers.

My sons we’re obsessed with this book when it arrived. We had to read straight through it twice in one go, and then go through once more just to fully explore all the ingenious tabs and flaps!  I promise you that you’ll notice different details lurking in the pages on every read.


A book to treasure and enjoy way beyond Halloween and sure to become firm favourite.

P.S. If you like the sound of this one, you will probably also love Perrin’s first title ‘Inside the Vilains’ which is in a similar format but explores the inner workings and motivations of some of the world’s best-known fairy tale villains.

Library Ghoul,

*Huge thanks to Gecko Press for sending me this copy to review*
