Synopsis

Ghost in the House by Ammi-Joan Paquette

Boo! Watch out for this rollicking, cumulative counting book for a Hallowe'en treat that's more playful than scary.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.

He finds inspiration in old children's books and vintage posters. This is his first picture book. Adam lives in the US in Utah, with his wife and two children. Visit Adam online at adamrecord.com.
