I’m trying to remember the name of a book/books I read as a kid. Both were picture books and sort of creepy. The first took place in a mansion/castle and it was really creepy and full of dangerous things. Each page was a different room, for example the dining room showed a picture of a table filled with food but some of it had poison or dynamite in it, and another page I think was something like a dungeon with bones in it. It was similar to a choose your own adventure book, and each choice you made landed you in a different room of the mansion, and I think the goal was to escape because at the end of the book you were outside.
The second book I remember very little about, it was another picture book and it may have been about witches or something. It was also creepy in nature and I don’t feel like it had much of a story line, I just remember the kitchen was full of ingredients a witch would use in a potion like “bat eyes” etc. There were lots of foods with gross labels, i think tapeworm cereal might have been one or something similar to that! I know that’s not much information. I remember reading these books in the early 90’s but they were from the library and are probably from the 80’s. Any information would be helpful, it’s driving me crazy trying to remember the names of these books.

From a reader: “My mom was cleaning the closets this morning and found this old toy. All it says on the bottom is 1995. Does anybody remember what this was or where it came from?”
