Review: Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 by B.C.R. Fegan


The magical Hotel of Hoo is a mysterious place with some very unusual occupants. As our guests explore the strange hotel, they are invited to experience everything it has to offer with just one warning… don’t ever look behind door 32.

This imaginative picture book aims to take children beyond the first ten cardinal numbers, and introduces them to the patterns of counting in a fun and accessible way. With rooms to explore and unique objects to count, children will enjoy lingering on each page as they make their way closer to the forbidden door.


This book was so much fun. We follow a tour through the hotel, where each door has a different theme. The illustrations were gorgeous. I loved the animated emotions of the characters as they experienced their journey through the book. It really brought the book alive.  I can only imagine how much fun this will be for the young reader but I found myself excited with curiosity wanting to flip faster to find out what was behind the door. The build up was fun and will really get their imagination going. Overall, it was a fun adventure that I know your reader will enjoy. I would recommend this to their reading list.
