Ghost in the House - Children's Book Review

Book Overview:

Ghost in the House
By Ammi-Joan Paquette, illustrated by Adam Record

9780763655297 | Ages 3 to 7

There’s a ghost in the house, In the creepy haunted house, On this dark spooky night all alone.

When a little ghost goes slip-sliding down the hallway, he suddenly hears...a groan! Turns out it’s only a friendly mummy, who shuffles along with the ghost, until they encounter...a monster! As the cautious explorers continue, they find a surprise at every turn—and add another adorably ghoulish friend to the count. But you’ll never guess who is the scariest creature in the house!

Boo! Watch out for this rollicking, cumulative counting book for a tale that’s more playful than scary.

My Review:

What starts out as a ghost in a house turns into a group of monsters, each one discovering another.  In the end, it's the monsters who get scared of a little boy in the house.  This hardback book is a quick story that helps with counting (each creature being added as they are found) and is quite whimsical.  Although the narrative is short, the way the author uses words is witty.  

I received book for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and i was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
