To distract Elsa from a gala being planned in her honor, Anna fills her schedule with fun bonding activities. But what starts as a distraction turns into an adventure when they find a secret door leading to passageways within the castle walls—and the door locks behind them, trapping them inside! Then, as they explore the narrow passages and sealed-off rooms, looking for an exit, spooky things start to happen. Echoing laughter, mysterious patches of cold air, odd arrangements of clothes and furniture…what could be causing all these strange events? With Elsa’s powers and Anna’s ingenuity on their side, they’re more than a match for whatever they find—if they can just find it in time! Packed with humor and heart, Phantoms of Arendelle will keep readers guessing right up until the last page.

I saw this as an ebook at our library and knew that A loves anything to do with Frozen so I knew she would enjoy this book. I was a bit wrong it did not really hold her interest as there are no pictures and with only being three she loves her picture books still. 
I think that the older children that are reading chapter books would enjoy this one a whole lot more as of course it has chapters. Anna is planning a gala for her sister Else but she needs to distract her so what better way then leading her on an adventure that soon turns them to be locked inside the castle walls. Oh no will they be able to get out? And who is behind the laughing that they hear? You have to read that to find out. To me it wasn't scary and for those that are wanting a mystery that isn't scary this would be something for them.
