Are you scared of ghosts? Are your parents scared of ghosts? This is the book for you. Here Rebecca Green (with the help of Dr Phantoneous Spookel) will make sure that you will be able to make friends with a ghost.
A light-hearted text presented in a clear and attractive sans-serif font against a clean white ground takes the reader through such mysteries as to how to identify a ghost (a helpful illustration, labelled), what ghosts might like to eat (mouldy toast, monster-mashed potato, spiderweb sushi), and generally how to care for a ghost from dawn to dusk, from the beginning to the end. There are no great surprises but plenty to cause a young reader to wriggle with slightly horrified delight. The illustrations are a perfect match for the text. Neat lines accompanied by a minimal palette of brown, greys and red. The effect is gently humorous (it is suggested you might like to institute ‘A take your ghost to work’ day) – right up to the end where you are reminded that a ghost will be a friend for life and beyond; an enjoyable excursion for slightly older readers in Early Years.
