    I thoroughly enjoyed this. It's a short chapter book (it's only 90 pages, with large-ish print and several illustrations) and the plot is fairly slim, with focus primarily on the the family's move and the mystery surrounding the mysterious "Thing" that Roger thinks keeps inhabiting their tree house, but the characters are well developed and I especially appreciated how even the parents are real people with their own dreams and feelings.

Roger's feelings about moving to a new house, leaving his friends, still feeling that his "old" house is truly "home" etc. are sensitively and realistically portrayed. I appreciate the loving family and especially that Roger is kind to his little sister and aware of her feelings. The mystery is pitch-perfect in that sort of delicious spookiness that comes from letting your imagination get the better of you and anything scary is buffered by the warmth of the loving family and, of course, all ends well. Published in the early '70s, the illustrations are delightfully dated, but I think the story is fairly timeless and I would recommend to young mystery lovers of today.

    3.5 stars. Too short for me, but good for young kids. This brother and sister are good kids, in a healthy family, and they still manage to have an adventure. Happy endings all 'round. I have no idea why one reviewer said it's horrifying. I'm sensitive, and cannot find anything but vry mild tension. Not even the level of a bowdlerized 'three little pigs' story, for example. 3.5 stars. Too short for me, but good for young kids.

    I would recommend this book to young readers transitioning from picture books to chapter books. The language is simple which makes it a good read. It is a good mystery book for the kids.

    Though as an adult I found this book's plot and characters flat and not engaging, I would recommend this book to younger children because it is such a great one for young readers. The vocabulary and sentence structure of this book remains as simple as that found in picture books, but there is an actual plot that will engage children as they read. For that reason, I would especially recommend this book to young readers between 5 and 7 who are still transitioning from picture books to chapter book Though as an adult I found this book's plot and characters flat and not engaging, I would recommend this book to younger children because it is such a great one for young readers.

For that reason, I would especially recommend this book to young readers between 5 and 7 who are still transitioning from picture books to chapter books. The plot of this story is also exciting because it is centered around a curious mystery that children can relate to, so it will make them want to keep reading to find out what happens next, plus it will also engage their minds as they try to figure out the mystery for themselves. Overall, though I would not recommend this book to children who have progressed to normal chapter books, I definitely recommend this for reluctant or newer readers who need something simple but fun to get them jump-started.

    Quick read. I would say the vocabulary is good for children first learning chapter books but the content would be too frightening for them. The children move to the country and enjoy exploring their new treehouse and stream until strange things start happening— a mysterious letter referring to The Thing and footprints show up. The girls doll mysteriously is found at the bottom of the treehouse. My early independent readers would find this too suspenseful. Questionable language: “Heck no!” is said Quick read.

    This was a cute story. It's about a family who moves out in the country and the kids are seeing strange things around their new treehouse. The illustrations throughout were great. The only annoying thing was the girl chanting everything... it got old really quick. I figured out the mystery and it had a nice ending. This was a cute story.

    Roger and his family move from town to the wooded country. There is a tree house on their property, and Roger thinks he saw someone in the window of it as him and his family were inspecting the property with the real estate agent. As they get settled in their new home, Roger notices footprints by the creek, that only has three toes on the foot. Will Roger solve the mystery of the tree house?

    Had this on the shelf for a long time and wanted to read before donating. Was an OK read, very juvenile so would probably suit the target audience well. Nice little story, but I really can't say much more about it. Had this on the shelf for a long time and wanted to read before donating.

    This book is miscategorized. It ought to be under horror. it is terrifying for at LEAST six reasons, only two of which are intentional. This is not a book I would read to a child, even if I hated both the child AND the child's parents. This book is miscategorized.

    This was a cute little mystery story. My son enjoyed this a lot. There is a nice mystery element to it that is a little creepy but not scary. An old but delightful middle grade novel with wholesome wordage and nice lessons.

    Another one from my child hood. Holds up pretty well. Family moves to the country side to a property with a tree house. Children find notes warning them to stay away, mysterious foot prints, strange sounds. SPOILER ALERT: it is the kids next door who don't want to give up their clubhouse. Perfect for an almost six-year old who is just beginning to love a good mystery story. Another one from my child hood. Holds up pretty well.

    This is a good beginning chapter book for early readers. The plot is interesting enough to keep them reading.

    Another one from my childhood, Weekly Reader Edition. I found it recently and now my daughter is attempting it. Better review to follow.

    We had this book when I was a kid. I've been trying to identify it for years - I knew I didn't imagine this story! We had this book when I was a kid. I've been trying to identify it for years - I knew I didn't imagine this story!
