This spooky tale, told in rhyme, includes some lovely sophisticated language and a refrain. It might be a bit scary for some, but those who like a thrill will enjoy the escalating tension as two ghosts approach, and then explore, the creepy house. It’s portrayed in sepia inkiness – all shadows and interesting perspectives – with a welcome surprise near the end. Perfect for Halloween. Ages 4 to 8-years.
