Hide and Ghost Seek: 10/04/07

Hide and Ghost Seek

Hide and Ghost Seek is one of Sean's current favorite books. We got it through BookCrossing originally to share with Sean's school but the book seems to be a permanent fixture in Sean's "current read" pile.

Each page of the book is whimsically drawn with a halloween themed scene. There are ghosts who are hidden in each drawing from 1 through 15 and then 20. The ghosts are cleverly hidden but still easy enough to find making it fun for both of us to read together.

I love the book for the cute drawings. Each set is intricately drawn and filled with the sorts of things one would expect from a Halloween themed world. And yet each scene looks lived in. There is a school, a laundromat, a movie theater, a beach, a drive in and many other interesting places. Fans of books like the I Spy series will enjoy Hide and Ghost Seek.
