Greenglass House

Cover: 'Greenglass House'

Staff Review: "Greenglass House" by Kate Milford


The old historic, creaky smugglers’ inn called Greenglass House sits high on a hill requiring guests to take a trolley type of car that gets pulled to the top. It is winter, close to the holidays, and usually free of guests so Milo, the adopted son of the innkeepers, is looking forward to a relaxing vacation. But unexpectedly the buzzer for the trolley car keeps ringing as several individual guests begin arriving. Their stories are varied and mysterious but somehow seem to be connected to this old house. When objects start disappearing from angry guests and a map is uncovered, Milo and his friends set off on a mysterious quest to recover the objects and uncover the secret history of the house and their guests. Written for tweens, this is a fun and engrossing read for all ages.

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction, fantasy
