Extract and Synopsis from the Bell Lomax Moreton’s article above:-

Jeffers regularly turns the expected into the unexpected. With There’s a Ghost in This House he brings a unique and disarmingly witty take on the traditional ghost book that will go far beyond Halloween.

 

 

Oliver’s iconic style, featuring his characteristically bold hand-rendered text, combines in an inventive format that invites readers to find the ghosts hidden in the book. With every turn of the page, readers will delight in making ghosts appear and disappear with the translucent paper pages that overlay Jeffer’s incredible mixed-media illustrations.

Once again, he brings a unique perspective to words and pictures that has seen him become a worldwide picture-book phenomenon, selling over 14 million copies in forty-six territories worldwide.
