Book Review


This picture book is divided into short sections that cover the concept, history, and tradition of ghosts, both historically and in popular culture. Featuring a blue-washed layout and intriguing stock photography of old houses, historical events, and people, the text is also accompanied by short “Did You Know?” text boxes that provide additional facts and information on the examples of ghost culture provided. A short glossary in the back of the book also contains definitions of words that young readers may not have encountered before, complete with guides to pronunciation.
