Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

What the judges said: It employs sumptuous colour, and layers of exquisite decorative detail to really draw you into the story. You can feel the presence of the ghost; there is a real sense of her movement. Though the illustrator has not stuck to a single colour palette, there is no jarring. There is plenty for children to look at in this book which repays revisiting.

Synopsis

Jinnie Ghost by Berlie Doherty

Introducing Jinnie Ghost, thin as the wind, with hair as white as the feathers of owls and eyes like water. Jinnie whispers dreams to children as they sleep. She brings Charlotte's dolls to life, makes Amy's carpet bubble with frogs and toads and conjures up a giant to carry Joe away shoulder-high to his castle in the sky. But the break of dawn takes Jinnie away...and the children wake to a new day, brushing wonder from their eyes. This perfectly-pitched poem takes readers on a thrilling fantasy journey, raising a shiver or two on the way, but returning them safe and sound in the morning.

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