Editorial Reviews

Review

Booklist, September 15, 2011:
"Atmospheric and fun, Castelao’s hazy mixed-media illustrations, which have a somewhat Disney-movie-still quality to them, evoke the feeling of a steamy day in NOLA, and the text, with its pacing and patterns, is ideal for letting the reading aloud roll."

Format: Hardcover
The Hungry Ghost of Rue Orleans is one of my kids' favorite new picture books. My daughter loves Fred, the frustrated but friendly ghost, and Marie, the child who helps him, while my son loves all the food - especially the crawfish flying through the air - Whoosh, Whoosh! The illustrations are gorgeous, giving a real New Orleans feel to The Hungry Ghost restaurant and making the kids want to try, along with all the real food, "Powdered Ghost Puffs." I think kids of all ages will enjoy this book because it's humorous, suspenseful and has a very sastisfying end (which not all picture books do these days.)

We love Fred the Ghost! He likes things messy (us, too!), can't resist a tasty treat (ditto), and he, um, doesn't necessarily like to share (hmmm). This satisfying story with its warm, expressive illustrations is a delight to read again and again.

Just right for ages 3-5 and even older -- boys and girls -- especially those who, like mine, like to lend a hand in the family kitchen. Might even inspire some homemade ghostly goodies. As for fellow foodie adult readers, the restaurant setting complete with its own pompous critic is a real treat.

Keeping our copy and will likely pair another with a child's chef hat or apron and whisk for a "theme" Christmas gift. Sweet!

The characters are funny and quirky. The New Orleans setting is spot on. And the illustrations work well with the text. Children--and their parents--will want to read this one again and again.

I love picture books that focus on a particular city (Paris, Venice, etc.) and New Orleans is one of my favorites. "The Hungry Ghost of Rue Orleans" is a "sweet and spicy" tale whose illustrations make you swear you can hear the music and inhale the scents. Read this book, and as they say in New Orleans, "let the good times roll!"
