Praise For Creaky Old House

"Each line adds a layer of rich storytelling...Chesworth’s vibrant and detailed illustrations, including double-page-cros-section of the house, lingering and revisiting. This ramshackle mess of an abode has real character and happily contains its frolicking family." -- Kirkus Reviews
