The House of Dies Drear is a wonderful book. I enjoyed it a lot, and I hope to finish the second book, which I just started. This book was published in 1968. That was a long time ago if you ask me. I think I would like to watch the movie. I didn’t know there was one, and I wonder when it came out. I really, truly, think that The House of Dies Drear is a spectacular book. It is mysterious, and full of adventure. This story talks about the Underground Railroad, and the Civil War.
