Books There's a Ghost in this House


Step into a world of mystery and whimsy with Oliver Jeffers' latest creation, "There's a Ghost in this House." Known for masterpieces like "Lost and Found" and "Stuck," Jeffers brings his unique artistry to a hauntingly beautiful picture book experience, featuring interactive transparent pages.

"Hello, come in.
Maybe you can help me?"

In this enchanting tale, a young girl resides in a historic house built in 1760, convinced that a ghost lurks within its walls. Although she has never seen the ghost, she invites readers to join her in the search. Will you be the one to help her uncover the ghost or perhaps discover more than one?

This beautiful, funny, and spooky picture book captivates children of all ages. The sumptuous illustrations showcase a delightful interplay between greyscale depictions of the house and the brightly coloured little girl leading the way. The sparse yet humorous text adds to the charm of the story.

As you turn the transparent pages, a host of friendly ghosts reveals themselves in unexpected places – from chandeliers to halls, under and over the bed, making children giggle with joy. The clever design ensures that the 'ghosts' appear magically with each page turn against the darker illustrations of the house.

This book is not just for Halloween; it's a timeless treasure that will be cherished all year round. Oliver Jeffers' creativity and storytelling prowess shine through in this delightful picture book adventure.
