Ghost by Luk Depondt and Guido Van Genechten (Meadowside Children's Books)

What a relief to find that this book doesn't feature Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze and a potter's wheel. No instead it features a lovely chirpy little ghost chappy, a child's imaginings of what life would be like as a ghost. Haunting, flying, swooping, woohing a lot, and of course chasing all your friends!

A lovely little rhyming story with bold and cheerful illustrations, Ghost is suitable for such a huge range of ages, even little babies find it entertaining (note to children's illustrators, big beaming smiles = HUGE win with babies!)

Charlotte's best bit: Big cuddles from the ghostly mummy

Daddy's favourite bit: Eating luscious looking orange lollies. YUM!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
