Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
The more lovable than frightening little ghosties who sit "on their posties, eating burnt toasties, telling big boasties" take delight in reporting to each other on their abilities to frighten, all in amusing rhymes. Ghouls, witches, even an ogre, are spooked away with whoo's and boo's. But when they decide to scare some "girlsies" and "boysies," and arrive at the narrator's house, they meet their match. Back to their "momsies" they run, only to be sent to bed. The appealing, silly story is made all the more attractive set on double-page, mixed media scenes, like that of the sketchy gray blobs of ghosties chewing on their pieces of toast, or of the other cartoony characters in their various locations. The witches "in their nighties" ride off on broomsticks through the woods, but the oafish ogre towers over the fields. Houses are designed like fairytale castles, while the narrator sleeps in a huge "royal" bed. The size and shape of the words of the text vary to enhance the emotion; many bits of detail add to the flavor. The story starts with the ghosties on the jacket/cover and front endpapers; they are tucked unhappily into bed on the back endpapers. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2
"Three little ghosties/sat on their posties,/eating burnt toasties,/telling big boasties." Ghostie Number One brags about scaring a bunch of "ghoulsies," Number Two crows about frightening some mean witches, and Number Three tells about spooking a huge ogre. When the boasties and toasties are finished, the threesome heads off to scare some "girlsies" and "boyses." But the ghosties are the ones running for their "momsies" when the tables are turned. The rhyming text is fun to read aloud. Cantone's glossy mixed-media collages are filled with color and motion. Various fabrics, antique papers, and objects are cleverly incorporated into the artwork and add texture and detail: a spider sits on a web made from lace and the witches' brooms are cobbled out of cut ribbon. These unique pictures perfectly capture the ghosties and their antics, giving them a slightly spooky quality while emphasizing the story's humor.
