Ghosts in the House!Ghosts in the House! by Kazuno Kohara

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a lovely little Halloween book to discover at a bookfair just before October.

First of all love the color scheme ... it's all in orange and black with a touch of white (the ghosts!). Perfect for the fall. They have sort of a retro vibe that grownups reading the book might like, too. But we're not talking about grownups liking this book, are we? ;]

The illustrations are just fun! The little ghost mouths on the curtains and tablecloths will delight the picture book crowd. The little witch and her cat work so hard to make their new home look like a nice place, and not haunted at all.

And of course (hope this is not a spoiler!) who doesn't love a story that ends with the little witch, her cat, and the ghosts living together ever after?

Not a tale of terror, this is a happy haunted book. Pick it up!

  1. I wrote about this one this week, too. LOVE it. So simple but SO well done.

  2. I know ... I saw that. Need to check out the other ones you mentioned. Felt a little silly repeating but wanted to participate and didn't have any other ideas. I've been under the weather for a while so my reading has lagged ... hoping it perks back up soon!
