Winterhouse

From author Ben Guterson and illustrator Chloe Bristol, the middle-grade urban fantasy Winterhouse series is the story of a young orphan finding a home in a hotel full of secrets.

Sent to live at the ominous Winterhouse Hotel, Elizabeth Somers discovers a magical book of puzzles in the library that reveal a mystery about Norbridge Falls, the hotel’s owner—as well as her own connection to her new home.

“Guterson provides readers a treat: mean caregivers à la the Dursleys; a vast, luxurious hotel where oddities abound; a new word-puzzle-loving friend; a shrouded history for Winterhouse; and sinister circumstances. . . Clever and captivating.”—Kirkus Reviews (for Winterhouse)
