The Lovereading4Kids comment

A spine-tingling bedtime story that explores feelings of overcoming anxieties and feeling secure with a delightful hero who shows we can overcome our fears and fit in. Bertie is just a little ghost. He wants to be good at haunting, but he's scared of creepy forests and spooky castles. If only he could find somewhere more cosy ... then he would be ready to haunt the night away! If you're looking for a toe-tingling bedtime story, then Bertie is ready to share a shiver with you!


Ready Steady Ghost! by Elizabeth Baguley

'Shiver-me, shake-me!' said Bertie. The forest at midnight can be a scary place. Bertie has just set out on his first haunting. It's a journey that makes our little ghost feel jumpy: through a dark and lonely wood, past a howling wolf, a hissing snake, and a roaring dragon! So when he reaches a big old castle, Bertie doesn't really feel like haunting, he feels like hiding: especially when he's chased up the stairs by a dog. It's only when Bertie takes refuge in a draughty attic that he finds the perfect place to take up his position as resident ghost.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
