Andrea Beaty is also the author of Doctor Ted, Iggy Peck, and Cicada Summer. She resides in Illinois with her family. Pascal Lemaitre is also the illustrator of Doctor Ted and Who's Got Game? He resides in New York with his family. Hush, Baby Ghostling is a children's picture book targeted for 2-5 years, relaying a mother ghost trying to put her baby ghostling to bed for the morning. With a bit of a switch, this was clever using ghosts as a bedtime story for the things that would go bump in the daytime while they sleep, as opposed to kids and fears at night. A great way to make children less afraid. The illustrations were phenomenal and the story was told in a poetic rhyme format beautifully. A recommended 5 star must read!
