The Lovereading4Kids comment

Dare you enter the Haunted House? In a big old house at the edge of town there's a spooky surprise in store . . . But who's afraid of a few ghosts? Certainly not the heroine of the story who is an engaging and inventive little girl with real girl power. In fact she’s the sort of girl that little girls look up to. With a highly original artwork style that's perfect for Halloween, this quirky and very funny story marks the debut of a genuinely original new talent in picture books. Available in this hardback and in paperback.
