Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>A playful, delightfully illustrated book that sets the record straight about ghosts. Ghosts are not sheets with holes dragging around a ball and chain. Indeed, they're just as colorful and diverse as humans. Here you'll meet the ghost of the chimney, the TV, the kitchen, and the library, to mention just a few.</p> <p> Marc Boutavant is a graphic artist, illustrator, and comic strip author. He was born in in Borgogne in 1970 and lives in Paris, France. He has illustrated many books and is especially well known for his book Around the World with Mouk .</p>

In words and pictures, ghosts set the record straight about--ghosts.

Horn Book Review

A dozen spreads introduce readers to the library ghost ("If you see the corner of a page turned down, you'll know he's been there!"), the kitchen ghost ("PLOP! A package falls to the floor"), and other disembodied souls. The mood isn't ghoulish but winking, as are the intricate illustrations, which, like the chatty, playfully laid-out text, can be cumulatively wearying. (c) Copyright 2014.
