Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

There are plenty of books about ghosts. But how many actually contain ghosts? This experimental project pairs a print book with a free app readers must download onto a smartphone or tablet with a front-facing camera. It’s worth it. The book itself is fairly straightforward: each spread introduces a ghost from history using an exciting narrative-style paragraph followed by an account of the facts or legends. The opposite page, however, is a moody scenery painting—a cobwebbed hallway, a dark forest. By positioning your screen above this illustration, a ghost rises from the page in full, rotational, three-dimensional glory, complete with creepy music and effects. It can be hugely startling. Take, for example, the skeletons of the children killed by Richard III, who prance around after a ball that you flick with your finger. Or the headless horseman who barrels out from the page on his horse. Or the spectral black dogs that bark at you if you edge too close. Use is naturally limited because of the tech—but, wow, will this ever spook some kiddos! Grades 3-6. --Daniel Kraus

I bought this book for my daughter who's really into spooky ghost type stuff. She's loving this book, we've read through it several times already. The 3D ghosts effects are well done but it can be a little tricky keeping the iPad pointing at the page just right.

The stories were interesting, and the art is good. The VR part is a bit gimmicky, and is hard to do in very low light. We also had issues with having to hold the iPhone/iPad far enough away from the book to get the whole page on the screen.

However, once you find a position that works, the VR is really cool. A bit creepy on some pages, but nothing too scary (my 6 year old loved it).

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I scared a few 7 yr olds during Halloween at a read-along for my daughter's class. The boys were actually scared. The stories are perfect and the kids recognized them.

It worked very well with my iPad and it impressed many adults too.

I'm guessing augmented reality is in its beginning stages, but this book was fun to play with! My 9 year old enjoyed showing it to her friends. Certain ghosts were more interesting than others, but overall I'm glad I purchased it!
