Praise

The retro-style illustrations, featuring muted pink, blue and golds, are spot-on. Kids will have a good time being in on the joke and looking for all the hidden (and not so hidden) ghosts.
School Library Journal

No Such Thing is spooky without ever being scary — just the right kind of silly ghost-story for the run-up to Hallowe’en. Artist/author Ella Bailey has done a wonderful job of telling a story with pictures and words, and there are delightful visual flourishes on every page, conveying the full flavor of Georgia’s increasing insistence that there must be a rational explanation for all these things.
—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

Bailey has created a gorgeous world […] from the furniture and wallpaper to the food in the fridge. Every bit is pleasing to look at. The text is playful and ever-so-slightly sarcastic, which appeals to all different audiences. Georgia’s character is so important in this book because she is a strong female role model. […] No Such Thing is definitely an A+ book, one that every young reader should have in their collection.
—This Picture Book Life

Bailey’s illustrations are full of wide-eyed character and expression with plenty of detail in each scene to keep keener eyes occupied.
—Creative Review

A great Halloween gift that would last a lot longer than candy.
—The Book Faerie

With it’s playful, smiley ghosts, No Such Thing is a great Halloween pick for those who tend to become uncomfortable or frightened by ghoulish holiday staples.
—Sturdy for Common Things

Super-cute and friendly ghosts make mischief in this creative ghost story. Watch your little one have fun finding hidden ghosts on each page. Even those easily scared will find these little ghosts charming and delightful! […] No Such Thing is a favorite!
—This Picture Book Life

The illustrations have a sweet retro feel and include a lot of fun details that are thoughtful and fun to linger on. It is definitely one to add to your “Spooky Stack” of books for Halloween!
Book Nerd Mommy
