Review by Publisher Summary 1

When 12-year-old Adam and his Mom buy an old wardrobe at a local furniture store, an old woman begins to yell at them. She claims that the wardrobe belongs to her, and that they have no right to have it. The store owner shoos away the old woman and apologizes, explaining that "The Witch" has been causing problems and shouting curses at people in the neighborhood for years. Everything seems fine until later that day. When the movers are delivering the wardrobe to Adam's apartment, its door suddenly swings open and The Witch falls out of it—dead! How did the old woman mysteriously end up inside the wardrobe? And more importantly, how did she die? Will Adam be able to follow the clues and solve the mysterious case of The Winter, the Witch, and the Wardrobe?
