Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Written in 1959, this book has been read by (or read to) three generations of children. The author preserved, nurtured, and revised the manuscript of The Mystery of the Red-Brick House for 42 years. It traveled with the author from Reading, Pennsylvania to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Dayton and Portsmouth, Ohio and back to Fort Wayne. It was finally published in 2001. This is a mystery for young adults (from 9 to 90). The story involves five siblings who move into a summer house that has been vacant for years. It is dissipated, looks spooky, even haunted. Strange things begin to happen, and a mystery begins to unfold. Muddy footprints on the porch, voices in the night, and a trap door to the attic that closes by itself, convince the five children something is definitely wrong. Are they in danger? they wonder as they try to solve the mystery of the red-brick house.
