    1. This is a great little Gothically illustrated book for children. It also concludes my reading of Aaron Blabey picture books. I love his work and was glad fo finish on a book I loved. Like all of Bkavey's best books for children, this one has a message. It helps children understand that its not the right thing to do to shun someone or be scared of them no matter how different they are. The story does this by showing children how sad the ghost of Annabelle Spoon is when nobody will talk to her and [...]

    2. Gorgeous picture book for brave younger readers, or middle primary. Haunting naïve quality to Blabey's illustrations, paint layered on so that the texture comes through (eg. Cloud on the opening page). Blabey uses a muted palette of coloiurs, greens and greys, until the end when the problem is solved to great effect. The meter is very reassuring, it seems like it’s a scary story but really it’s not. Great dedication “For the place my shoes are buried”. Classic opening situation, problem [...]

    3. This was a gorgeous book to read. A ghost named Annabel Spoon haunts a town who wants to rid themselves of her. One voice dissents and believes that he can make her stop. With trepidation he find the sad, forlourn ghost and realise that she's just lonely so he befriends her. This is a book written in verse, full of humour and rather touchingly told. I highly recommend it. I ADORE the illustrations which capture emotions and nuanced expressions. Love it.

    4. I love this book. I love the prose, I love the drawings, I love the thought put behind the story. Clever book that entertains my son immensely when I read it to him. As he is only four months its easy for him to track due to the dark colors, while the rhymes make the sounds fun, and the storyline makes the books entertaining for adults. Perfect.

    5. Told in limerick fashion this gothic picture book delights and, with a predictable ending, joy abides. A book to keep you smiling with illustrations to look at closely. A keeper for an elementary classroom.
