Booklist (October 1, 2012 (Online))
Grades 4-6. Odd things continue to happen at the old Victorian house where Olive lives. But Olive and her friend, Morton, discover that evil (and dead) Annabelle McMartin can create havoc outside the house, too. When Olive learns that Morton may be leaving town, she despairs. He is one of the few who know her secret—and her only friend in junior high. Once again filled with clever talking cats, paintings that come alive, and nefarious goings-on, this light fantasy/mystery will be enjoyed by fans of the Elsewhere series, and since it makes a game effort to stand alone, new readers may be lured in as well.
