Unfortunate Children Who Find Weird Stuff In Their Walls

What weird stuff in walls would you find?
We assume you can probably figure out which one of John’s books is discussed from this wonderfully-worded title.  Thus, here's Kate working in a northwest Philadelphia library with her thoughts.
Everyone knows that ordinary-looking wardrobes are connected to magical lands, and unassuming train platforms can lead to adventure in other worlds. But what else is hidden in the everyday objects around you? The books I'm going to tell you about today all feature quirky characters who fall on hard times - usually orphans or outcasts - and end up living in strange houses that lead to other worlds. You'd be amazed what you can find in your walls, for instance. Haven't you always wondered if that scratching you hear at night is a mouse... or a boggart?!
Besides House how many other items can you think of?
