The one to have this Halloween season this will be a classic for decades to come the pages are in glorious orange, with black and white played against this backdrop beautifully This book takes one back to construction paper projections The story is cute, and And the ghosts are great This book is for my private collection, to be cherished for years to come Absolutely delightful I just discovered this book today October 2013 on a display at Barnes Noble, and couldn t resist the wonderful artwork To my great joy, the story is equally wonderful A young witch and her cat find a hilarious solution to the ghosts haunting their new house my four year old laughed and laughed the pages are all orange and black, and the white ghosts are actually translucent So inventive, I just loved it A fantastic addition to your Halloween library It s so hard to find Halloween books that aren t cartoon or movie tie ins The Disney princess Halloween REALLY I didn t think this was a good picture book It was super simple and there was two moments in the book where I had to pause and go back I thought this could have been a lot better. I thought this was super cute, but I also think you need to understand Japanese culture a bit to appreciate the heroine s repurposing of ghosts Shinto based animist beliefs are still honored in Japan and unsettled disgruntled household objects are considered capable of haunting including old chopsticks and umbrellas There is even a Buddhist festival each year to honor old sewing needles The needles are stuck into a block of tofu to honor them for their service giving them a soft place to rest at the end of their life Anyone who has read Marie Kondo s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up has been exposed to this idea that our things have feelings and should be used and respected and thanked for their hard work I m amused that western readers have read into this a colonization genocidal sort of narrative Considered in context it s a harmless and rather sweet story this little girl gave a bunch of bored perturbed spooks a whole new job and purpose Victory The western idea that ghosts are dead folk that have unfinished business is not at play here The little witch isn t subjugating dead grandmas to eternal slavery as a tablecloth and it s not a parable about the white man taking over Native lands. 2014 This book was just perfect to read to my four year old for Halloween It s Halloween themed, but not scary at all I liked the ingenuity of the main character, and I loved the ghost illustrations.Update I like this book even better the second time around The story feels empowering to children who are afraid of ghosts and other spooks My daughter has been struggling lately with being afraid of the night, and I love that this story shows how she can take control of her own fears and make them into something better. I love this book My favorite one for my daughter and I to read at Halloween I love the illustrations and the cat This book is striking, with its orange pages and black illustrations I found it incredibly sweet, and loved the art style I would have adored it as a child, I m sure By its very nature it is brief, but it is also lovely. Ghosts don t have to be scary, they can be useful 4.0 ILLUSTRATIONS1.0 MESSAGEI was captivated by the cover art at a bookstore Halloween book display and found a copy at my library I am glad I didn t buy it on impulse as it s not the sort of story I d want to read over and over again, though the illustrations ARE wonderful I am afraid I must join the minority of reviewers here who found the storyline troubling Little Witch moves to a new house, but the only problem is, it is full of ghosts So, she uses her clever, witching skills to find a way to solve this little problem She catches all the ghosts, puts them in the wash, and when the sheets come out still with the little ghost faces , she uses them for curtains and tablecloths and bed sheets I think this is meant to showcase her ingenuity a good trait to encourage in kids BUTI found it upsetting especially in conjunction with the illustrations The ghosts are NOT scary or evil or menacing looking In fact, they are very cute and most of them are smiling, almost as if inviting the Little Witch into their house The Little Witch is thus not some sort of heroine, rather, she comes across almost as a supremacist, disposing of creatures she doesn t like simply because they are in her way or not like her I just couldn t get it out of my head that the cute little witch moving into the house and banishing all the friendly ghosts was like white settlers moving into Native American territory and abolishing what they perceived as savages Of course, this is my very grown up interpretation of the story, but I am not sure her methods are even appropriate for a child s viewpoint Rather than trying to talk to the other this books shows we should simply make them conform to our wishes Not the best way to make friends in our increasingly diverse world I m afraid I cannot give this book a high rating given my strong negative reaction to the message However, I will not deny that Kohara is a talented artist and I may look for future stories in the hopes they will not have such a troubling impression on me And I doubt she had any unpleasant intentions in mind when making such an adorably illustrated little Halloween book about being brave. `DOWNLOAD E-PUB ⇥ Ghosts in the House! ↚ Popular Books, Ghosts In The House By Kazuno Kohara This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Ghosts In The House , Essay By Kazuno Kohara Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You
