From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1 A little ghost tries on different disguises, hoping to scare his family. He turns to a book of Scary Things for inspiration, but his Frankenstein, Dracula, and Mummy impersonations all fail to elicit screams. Ironically, when he stumbles into a white sheet left on a clothesline, he finally gets his desired response. Aside from the ghost's determined shouts of BOOO!, few words appear. The story cinematically comes to life through Fenton's detailed oil paintings. The not-so-scary goblins have enormous round heads with pinprick eyes and small wispy bodies that seem to float against the velvety black backgrounds. The striking design also features a glow-in-the-dark cover. Spooky fun. Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
