Halloween treats for young readers...

From Candlewick Publishing

Ghost in the House
author: Ammi-Joan Paquette
illustrator: Adam Record
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 the count. But you’ll never guess who is the scariest creature in the house!
Boo! Watch out for this rollicking, cumulative counting book for a Halloween treat that’s more playful than scary.

My Opinion:

Candlewick always come out with the most amazing picture books for the holidays and this book was no different. This book is aimed at an audience of pre k - 2nd grade, I took 'Ghost in the house' to my sons school for his birthday reading. 
The children really enjoyed the story and became very animated and involved, we all have our favorite Halloween characters be it mummies, witches or ghosts and this story included most if not all of our favorites.
The art work is vivid and beautiful the writing style very entertaining that kept the young listeners attention until the end...
