100 Ghosts: A Gallery of Harmless Hauntsby Doogie Horner
Cut two eyeholes out of a bed sheet, and BOO! You've scared yourself up a classic Halloween icon. But what does that ghost look like when he's shy? Or in love? Or a pirate, a llama, a bond villain, or Russian nesting doll? 100 Ghosts explores every sort of spook in a series of whimsically haunting illustrations. It's a delightful collection for adults,/i>

It's a delightful collection for adults, children, and anyone in need of a friendly fright.
We have all seen Halloween ghosts, but how many of us have seen an undercover cop ghost, a x-ray ghost, or a Muppet ghost? Doogie Horner's cartoon collection of uncommon spooks reconfirms our sense that the paranormal is really weird. Fun for adults and kids.

I’m having a hard time describing this book except for simply fun. Great for anyone who loves simple, quirky books, 100 Ghosts is exactly as the title describes...a large gallery of harmless haunts. From a Harry Potter ghost complete with his iconic glasses to a shy ghost who won’t even look at you, Doogie Horner has created a creative and incredibly funny collection for children, teens, and adults to enjoy. We had a really good time passing the book around at my library with every librarian having a different favorite. Creative, funny, and captivating, 100 Ghosts: A Gallery of Harmless Haunts is a perfect coffee table book for you to pick up when you have a free moment. I always got something a little different out of it every time I picked it up and I know you will too!
