The House of Madame M

Clotilde Perrin, Daniel Hahn

A large-format lift-the-flaps visit to the haunted house of Madame M-enjoy the thrill of uncovering what lurks in the wardrobe, behind the door, tucked under the furniture…     

Are you lost? Come in! You’re in luck - there’s no one here just now. Shhh… Be as quiet as you can, and very, very careful!

In The House of Madame M, we explore a strange house: hallway, living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Each room is full of surprises to make even the bravest shiver. Are we in the house of an ogre?  A witch? Something else altogether?

This visit to Madame M’s brings the thrill of finding what  lurks in the wardrobe, behind the door, tucked under the  furniture. Full of humour and detail, it will mesmerise  readers of all ages.


As a kid I remember being completely enthralled by Jan Pieńkowski’s Haunted House, a creepy, kooky spooky, pop-up book by an exceptional illustrator. The House of Madame M, by the French creator Clotilde Perrin is a modern counterpart and will provide for its readers a similarly magical experience. Like Perrin’s previous work, Villains, this is a beautifully produced large-format book.

Readers are invited in to explore the home of a very mysterious resident. We take a tour through the different rooms of a strange house that is crammed with scary surprises: there are lots of flaps to lift and tabs to pull with imaginative, humorous details, and bizarre critters lurking behind doors, in cooking pots and even in the toilet bowl. It’s a thrilling treasure trove and will be adored by readers of all ages who delight in exceptional illustration and have a taste for the macabre.
