Ghost in the House by Ammi-Joan Paquette and Adam Record

In this deceptively simple counting book, five creatures lurk around a “creepy haunted house” until they run into something apparently even scarier that sends them running.

The adorable illustrations are more kooky than spooky, but what really makes this book stand out is the way the brilliantly rhythmic rhymes roll off the tongue; and, not to mention, all that deliciously catchy vocabulary.


The perfect mix of suspense and fun, this was love at first read for both of my kids, who have since memorised the whole book and reread it umpteen times — always a sign of a well-written and well-loved book!
