Goodreads | Bookshop.org

Hello, come in.
Maybe you can help me?
A young girl lives in a haunted house, but has never seen a ghost. Are they white with holes for eyes? Are they hard to see? She’d love to know! Step inside and turn the transparent pages to help her on an entertaining ghost hunt, from behind the sofa, right up to the attic. With lots of friendly ghost surprises and incredible mixed media illustrations, this unique and funny book will entertain young readers over and over again

I don’t often read picture books, but if I had to choose a favourite picture book author, I think it’d have to be Oliver Jeffers. He is definitely a go-to author for me when I purchase picture books for the little ones in my life, and I finally decided to purchase my own copy of one of his books with There’s A Ghost in This House. This beautiful hardback is more of a collectors item than anything – with a stunning transparent dust jacket and pages that overlay onto beautiful drawings of a an old house. We follow a girl, who lives in a haunted house but has never seen a ghost. As you turn each transparent page, the ghosts reveal themselves on the drawings, offering a lovely engaging story.

This book is so beautiful, and will definitely be one I treasure and am happy to add to my collection. There’s also a video from the author about this book, which I’ll insert below for anyone that wants to take a look.

★★★★
5 out of 5 stars
