From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2—"Three little ghosties/sat on their posties,/eating burnt toasties,/telling big boasties." Ghostie Number One brags about scaring a bunch of "ghoulsies," Number Two crows about frightening some mean witches, and Number Three tells about spooking a huge ogre. When the boasties and toasties are finished, the threesome heads off to scare some "girlsies" and "boyses." But the ghosties are the ones running for their "momsies" when the tables are turned. The rhyming text is fun to read aloud. Cantone's glossy mixed-media collages are filled with color and motion. Various fabrics, antique papers, and objects are cleverly incorporated into the artwork and add texture and detail: a spider sits on a web made from lace and the witches' brooms are cobbled out of cut ribbon. These unique pictures perfectly capture the ghosties and their antics, giving them a slightly spooky quality while emphasizing the story's humor.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
