This book is adorable. Between the sweet characters; mix of blatant and subtle humour, it is a fun read for parents and kids. It is also a lovely take on ghosts to show them as friendly and silly if your little one is not a big fan of scarier books. My 4 year old loved it! It was fun to look through the pages and see all the small details (including hidden ghostbusters paraphernalia and Groot toys) the author/illistrator included. I love that the author is from the Okanagan as well so we can support a local artist!

While I'm not generally fond of books where the characters interact with the reader, this one is pretty great. It's cute, funny, and very well paced for what it tires to do. Unfortunately, it does lean more toward being an adult conceit title with how complex some of it's jokes and overall story move. It reads like a lot like a movie like "Wreck It Ralph" and "Coco" move, but I'm not sure kids would appreciate how that feeling is adapted.
