When Emily finds a locked playhouse in the woods, she can't resist peeking through the windows. Inside, the walls are painted to look just like the surrounding woods, right down to an identical white playhouse with blue shutters. But the playhouse is not as deserted as Emily first thought. A girl Emily's age lives on the painted walls—and she's dying for Emily to join her!

When her family moves to rural Illinois, Emily thinks that the only other child for miles is her four-year-old brother, Logan. In the woods near her home, she finds a mysterious playhouse with realistic paintings on its interior walls, illustrating the playhouse and surrounding grounds. Emily wonders if that playhouse also had a playhouse painted on its walls. Soon that lighthearted idea turns nightmarish, as the lonely ghost of a little girl lures Emily and her brother into a maze of concentric playhouses. Emily and Logan both have roles to play in solving the puzzles that challenge them. Not a traditional ghost story but a story with a ghost in it, this short, accessible chapter book depicts characters with swift, sure strokes and places them in an intriguing situation. The many interior illustrations were not seen, but Gore's appealing jacket art will draw readers to the book. Carolyn Phelan
