Very sweet. Just one or two lines per page. AMAZING artwork. It looks like block printing with some sheer paper overlay (for the ghosts). Depicts a brave girl and an alternative way to take charge of things that may at first seem scary.
My 3 year old son loves it. With this book, he embraces the idea of a ghost, instead of being afraid of them.
Highly recommended for all.
Sweet and simple, one of the unexpected bonuses of this book is that it offers a fun way (re)considering things that might seem scary: ghosts are no longer something to fear, but something that become useful. The magic of the story is heightened by beautiful simplicity and balance of the art. Kohara is a wonderful author and illustrator, but this is perhaps her best book to date.
NYTimes 2008 Best Illustrated Children's book--a well deserved award.
Ideal for children 3+, but we still cherish it years later.
