These are definitely for kids, but having said that, it was still a fun read! Not so subtle hints and phrases that people who frequent haunted mansion will recognize within Tales from the Haunted Mansion: Vol. 1. If you or your tween is a Disney fan you will most likely enjoy these stories that follow a group of friends on a “scary” journey into the haunted mansion that you and I both know and love. I enjoyed the artwork in the book but mostly found it unnecessary as it didn’t add anything to the story.
Volume 2: Midnight at Madame Leota’s is already available. Given that the first book was really just a children’s novel and didn’t really scare or move me with its story, I don’t think I will be picking up the second volume, but if you have kids that like scary stories, I think they will enjoy this as well.
