Product Details


This slip of a story offers … entertainment for the youngest readers.
—Kirkus Reviews

Writing in peppy, evocative verse… Record’s digital cartoons playfully suggest that fear is in the eye of the beholder…
—Publishers Weekly

The simple rhyme has a bouncy rhythm that would make this book an enjoyable read-aloud for a not-so-scary storytime. This slightly spooky tale does not mention Halloween, so it can be enjoyed year-round.
—School Library Journal

The bouncy rhyme in this cumulative story is engaging, and the scariness level is just right for the very young.
—The Horn Book

In “Ghost in the House,” Paquette succeeds at catching her readers off guard at the start. … Adam Record gives his digital illustrations in this, his first picture book, a nicely scuffed-up appearance, as if rubbed with gritty charcoal, adding the illusion of texture and depth to otherwise familiar shapes. … Though “Ghost in the House,” like all the best counting books, is fundamentally simple in its architecture, Paquette and company mix the typical Halloween setting with a narrative that confounds expectations just enough to tickle readers’ funny bones.
—The New York Times Online

Hair-raising and hilarious, Ghost in the House is a practically foolproof way to get kids counting. Paquette’s simple yet effective rhymed verses give the little story momentumm while Adam Record’s digital illustrations have a wonderful sense of texture. … A true treat regardless of the season, Ghost in the House is a book readers will have fun with throughout the year.
—BookPage Children’s Corner
