So compelling! It's clearly set up for sequels, so be prepared for an ending that leaves you with questions.Eerie, but not to scary for tweens.

Henrietta?s life is controlled by rigid rules that ?protect? her from deadly things like house cats (dangerous wild animals) and old books (which can make you sick). But one night Henrietta finds an injured cat in a secret attic. From the tip-top windows, she can see her neighborhood the way it used to look in the idyllic way-back-when days. Good things rarely last, however, and soon a mysterious, long-fingered yellow creature called the Wikkeling is haunting Henrietta. Its mere touch can give you a headache, and it wants to know where you?ve been and what you?ve seen. As Henrietta investigats this menacing apparition and the world she lives in, readers are delightfully creeped out by illustrator Daniela Jaglenka Terrazinni?s stark and wild drawings. The dystopian world of The Wikkeling is eerily similar to our own, and that is of course where its real appeal lies.
