    One thought on “No Such Thing

    1. Katie Fitzgerald

      This was a different take on Halloween ghosts. Instead of trying to convince kids that there is no such thing as ghosts, this story proves that even though there are logical explanations for the strange happenings around Georgia's house, there are ghosts behind them after all. A book like this might have upset me as a kid, but I want to keep it in mind for my three-year-old this coming Halloween, since she is a complete skeptic and would probably remain convinced that ghosts are not real. I also [...]

      This was a lovely picturebook read by Ella Bailey who has gone on to produce even better work. The story is simple as we follow a little girl around her house solving the reason why things go missing. Unlike most of her peers, she does not believe in the supernatural so blames the mysterious happenings on her family and pets. The draw for the younger reader though is the beautiful illustrations and the cheeky little ghosts hidden on each page causing mischief of one kind and another! The only re [...]

      This is the perfect read aloud for your little ones as Halloween fast approaches! Haven't we all heard that scary creak in the attic or found our book or cup or sock somewhere we're pretty sure we didn't live it? Well, Georgia knows there's NO SUCH THING as ghosts, and sets out to prove there's nothing ghoulish in her home. In fact, it's probably just her cat! Or maybe her brother? But hidden across each gorgeously illustrated and intricate spread are hidden details that hint to something spookt [...]

      About the cutest ghosts ever messing around doing their ghostly thing while a little girl tries to convince herself that they are not there. Loved how the little ghosties were hidden everywhere.

    5. Rachel Ayers

      My favorite part is when she chases the spider down with a cup so she can catch it and put it outside instead of smushing it.

Now, some people may have wondered (especially at this time of year) if this was the work of something spooky? But not clever Georgia! She has all the explanations and none of the fear! Join her in debunking the spookiest of ghoulish and ghostly mischief in this Halloween adventure! Ella Bailey is an illustrator and writer who recently graduated from Falmouth Un [...]

      This is such a wonderful book. Ella Bailey strikes a perfect balance of spooktastic fun, mischief and misdirection. A concise, warm autumnal palate with flat black contrast allows each page to cleverly show and hide in equal measures. At the end, when you’re invited to look again and seek out all of the ghosts hidden within the pages, I’ll guarantee there’ll be some that you’ve missed. There’s some gentle vocabulary-stretching going on here, delivered with a read-aloud-friendly, undula [...]

      I picked this book up for its bold, unique illustrations (this is often the way I choose books, I definitely do judge them by their covers). It’s a Halloween themed book, which I would usually avoid, at the end of the book it says Happy Halloween, but otherwise, it’s not overtly holiday focused. In the story, we follow a skeptical little girl, who explains the real reasons behind spooky happenings. For example, there are strange shadows and scary noises at night, she turns on the light, and [...]

      While everyone else seems to be concerned about the odd things happening around them, Georgia always manages to find a perfectly logical reason for them. After all, Georgia knows there is no such thing as a ghost--or is there? Readers will enjoy trying to spot the ghosts hidden in the illustrations, and they will really have fun when they reach that spook-infested last page. Georgia has no idea what she's been missing.

    11. Andy

      This is a charming little story about a little girl who really doesn't believe in ghosts. Really. The highlight though it's the wonderful illustration style and colour palate. Nicely done and an added bonus of hide and seek for younger readers.

    12. Traci Bold

      Clever little Halloween picture book proving there are no such things as ghosts. Look close at every page to see if you agree.Written and illustrated by Ella Bailey, published by Flying Eye Books.#Halloween #ghosts #tales

    13. Beth

      So very charming! but I was surprised at the end all the little ghosties hold up a banner saying "Happy Halloween". So it's kinda a holiday book.

    14. Jennifer

      Cute, retro art style, colors. English in vocabulary-charming. Good example of an author who must have added illustration notes to indicate necessary depictions. Good text/art balance.

    15. Elaine

      Fun "eye spy" type of storybook. Illustrations are kind of retro and old-fashioned. Good story for Halloween and those times little ones are troubled by "monsters."

    16. Andrea

      Cute! Nothing mind-blowing but I love love love the illustrations. The quizzical faces, the adorable pets, the decor! Really cute.
