Ghost in the House by Ammi-Joan Paquette


Ghost in the House by Ammi-Joan Paquette

When a little ghost goes slip-sliding down the hallway, he suddenly hears ...a groan! Turns out it's only a friendly mummy, who shuffles along with the ghost, until they encounter ...a monster! As the cautious explorers continue, they find a surprise at every turn - and add another adorably ghoulish friend to their tally. But you'll never guess who is the scariest creature in the house!

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. She lives with her family in the US outside Boston, Massachusetts. Visit Ammi-Joan online at

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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.
