  • ‘Children will love the concept of being able to spot what the young girl can’t and Jeffers’ dryly funny visual jokes on the elusiveness of spirits finish with a cliffhang . . . Another absolute winner from this inventive author.’ Daily Mail
  • ‘A delightful interactive story for Halloween, long on spectres but short on scares . . . Hauntingly adorable’ Guardian
  • ‘the bestselling author pushes the boundaries of the picture book form . . . The giggling ghouls unseen by the girl may have little readers shouting “he’s behind you!” but there’s nothing panto-esque about this smart and inventive book.’ Guardian
