No Such Thing: spooky (not scary!) picture book

In the new Flying Eye picture book No Such Thing, a little girl named Georgia finds herself in a delightfully spooky situation: things in her home keep going astray – but Georgia knows that there’s no such thing as ghosts. Cory Doctorow field tested the book on his six year old, and comes back with a tale of mystery, delight, and fright, just in time for Hallowe’en.

Looks nice, but I was hoping that Hal Hartley had written a children’s novelization…

Our very favorite spooky-not-scary book is Matthew McElligott’s Even Monsters Need Haircuts. Completely charming and still holds up beautifully after dozens (and dozens and dozens) of reads. Can’t recommend it enough.

Especially good for the very wee and those still finding their courage in a season of ghoulies, ghosts, and Halloween stores full of disturbingly realistic severed heads, but so much fun that older kids & grownups will love it, too.
