Publisher's Summary

A creepy, funny and imaginative tale for fans of Coraline and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
When Hadley's parents leave on a cruise and then are reported lost at sea, her perfect world is turned upside down. In a flash she is whisked away to a new life of drudgery at Grimm House where she waits on not one but two persnickety old aunts. As she grudgingly fulfills their commands of cooking, cleaning, and even after-dinner-dancing, she comes to suspect the aunts are really witches who are scheming to take the thing she loves best.
With only her wits and the help of some unlikely new friends, Hadley makes a plan to escape Grimm House and find her way home before it's too late.

Fun mysterious adventure!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My older kids (ages 10 and 8) really enjoyed this book that has both mystery and suspense. The book had just enough intensity to keep them interested in the story while still connecting with the characters. My son enjoyed the book so much that he listened to it over the course of just 2 days and has started listening to the story a second time.
We all thought the narrator did a good job voicing the characters and keeping the listening interested in the story.
Overall this has been a great addition to our audiobook collection!

What An Awesome Story, Needs More Than Five Stars

Wow! GRIMM HOUSE was an incredibly good story. It was riveting from beginning to end and I couldn't stop listening. It was perfectly balanced with sweet (Hadley) and sour (the aunts) with some unexpected twists throughout. I loved this now as an adult, and I would've loved it as a kid. Even the animated characters (the roaches), usually unlikable critters were amazingly penned. I'm in awe at the talent of the author KAREN McQUESTION and look forward to other books by her. She's definitely on my 'author to watch' list. This was a true GEM. Grimm House was fun, exciting, thrilling, and visually captivating. I'd definitely recommend giving this a listen.

STACEY GLEMBOSKI brought this story to full circle with her excellent narration. She has a delightful voice and superb inflections and tone. She proved to be a very skilled voice actor and I hope to hear more from her in the future. She took a great book to a whole other level.
