When we moved to our new neighborhood, I had to promise my mother that I would not go near the strange old house on the corner.
People say it s haunted, she whispered.
Haunted? There is no such thing as ghosts!
But if there is...I am going to catch one!
Bold, three-color illustrations and silhouettes add an old-fashioned flair to this family-friendly ghost story. The reader/listener will be tempted to point out the side story in this engaging tale, but our hero, along with his trusty butterfly net, just does not seem to see what we see...which only adds to the fun!

Emmanuelle Eeckhout was born in 1976 in Charleroi, Belgium (She wonders if perhaps this is why she likes color in her life. Charleroi is very rainy...) She studied math and languages before switching to illustration, and published her first book in 2002. Today she lives in Nivelles, Belgium, but says she usually has her head in the clouds!From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—Eager to explore a neighborhood haunted house, a diminutive boy grabs his butterfly net and sets out to catch a ghost. He creeps from room to room, peeking in every prime hiding spot, but can't find any spirits. However, the joke is that readers see the adorable, playful spirits that cavort, tease, and go about their ghostly business, invisible to the boy. Through a simple palette of black, white, yellow, and pink, Eeckhout uses plenty of white space, full spreads, silhouettes, and small vignettes to great advantage. Suitable for one-on-one sharing or as an early reader, this simple tale will find a welcome place in collections, not only for Halloween, but also year-round.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
