Ghost in the House

By Ammi-Joan Paquette
Illustrated by Adam Record

Boo! Watch out for this rollicking, cumulative counting book for a Hallowe'en treat that’s more playful than scary.

When a little ghost goes slip-sliding down the hallway, he suddenly hears ... a groan! Turns out it’s only a friendly mummy, who shuffles along with the ghost, until they encounter ... a monster! As the cautious explorers continue, they find a surprise at every turn – and add another adorably ghoulish friend to their tally. But you’ll never guess who is the scariest creature in the house!

  • A very young - and not too scary! - story featuring a witch, a ghost, a skeleton, a mummy and a monster... Wow!
  • Perfect for Hallowe'en - or any other dark spooky night in the cosy bedtime shadows!
  • Cumulative and rhyming text that kids will want to hear over and over again.

About the author

Ammi-Joan Paquette has never met a ghost, mummy, monster, skeleton or witch – as far as she knows. This book, she says, was inspired by a game she used to play with her sister: “Most of the details have been lost to time, but I still remember the shivery thrill I got when we played it. So, I drew on that same energy to write a spooky picture book, which eventually became Ghost in the House.” In addition to writing, Ammi-Joan is also a literary agent representing authors of children’s books. She lives with her family in the US outside Boston, Massachusetts. Visit Ammi-Joan online at www.ajpaquette.com.
