    Simply an amazing book for early readers. The repetitive use of words creates a bond with the story. Not to forget the funny angle, I must say the author has very tactfully wiped away the fear of dark or ghosts and has rather created funny picks along with humorous illustrations. The characters were witty and silly at the same time. A thumps up for this writeup.. Looking forward to read more from this series.
