Olivia Kidney has just moved to another new apartment building, and Olivia?s the new kid in school, again. Olivia thinks she?s fed up with new places . . . until she gets a look at her building! Sure, it looks normal from the outside, but inside things are crazy. There are talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunts the hallways, and Olivia finds one apartment made entirely of glass! She?s meeting fantastical characters and seeing wondrous sights that make Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland seem tame. But among all the ghosts and pirates and princesses, can Olivia find a friend?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of My Favourite Childhood Stories My mom bought this for me when I was in Grade 3 for a Book Talk project, and I thought it was amazing! The whole entire concept of this book talks about a young girl who's lonely because she always moves to new houses and she feels lonely. However, this book is so imaginative as it starts talking about the main character Olivia being able to see ghosts and her own world, making her feel less alone. I think the book is very fantastical and creative. It also adds a cool element to the story, and is a great book for book talks. I loved this book and I would definitely recommend it to children ages 10 to 12. I loved it!

Editorial Reviews

At once exuberant and poignant, PotterÆs cunningly crafted first novel [is] a memorable debut. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
