Review: The Trespassers

The Trespassers
The Trespassers by Zilpha Keatley Snyder
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love this author’s writing style! Every book of hers that I’ve read has been delightful but also… different, weird, indescribable. This one is a sweet story about two siblings who find a playroom in an old mansion, and then things take a dark turn. I won’t spoil it for you, but it deals with child psychology and it’s definitely strange and surprising!
There’s always that one character in all her books that is intriguing and creepy and you just never know what insanity is going to develop. It certainly keeps things interesting!
I read this book all in one sitting; it really grabbed my attention. I love the close relationship between brother and sister in this story! Every character is so unique and complex. The plot is a bit one-track and fairly simple, but never boring.
I recommend this for any kid to read! Great children’s book!

  1. I can’t choose a favorite of her books, but they always move me in some mysteriously deep way, like opening a window that I didn’t know was there and showing me a new view of the world.
