Ghost in the House: A Lift-the-Flap Book

By Ammi-Joan Paquette

“The simple rhyme has a bouncy rhythm that would make this book an enjoyable read-aloud for a not-so-scary storytime.” —School Library Journal

More delightful than frightful, this lift-the-flap cumulative counting book follows a little ghost as he slip-slides through a dark and creaky house. At every turn a new ghoulish friend surprises the ghost, then joins him on his trek. The best surprise is saved for last: who do you think is the spookiest creature of all?

  • This new lift-the-flap edition lends itself perfectly to spooky - yet not too scary - surprises
  • Perfect for Halloween!
  • 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. Adam Record started doodling on a bench in church. He started to get serious about drawing only after someone bought one of his drawings. He finds inspiration in old children's books and vintage posters. This is his first picture book.
