Writing in peppy, evocative verse, Paquette introduces the amiable residents of a haunted house, starting with a bloblike blue ghost, who is frightened when he hears a groan—until he learns that it belongs to a friendly, egg-headed mummy. Next, the two find an overgrown mustard-yellow monster, and “a skeleton makes four in the house,/ In the creepy haunted house,/ On this dark, spooky night, cold and bleak.” Record’s digital cartoons playfully suggest that fear is in the eye of the beholder as ghost, mummy, monster, and a witch flee in terror at the sight of a human boy in striped pajamas. Ages 3–7. Author’s agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Shannon Associates. (July)
