100 Ghosts by Doogie Horner
Cut two eyeholes into a bedsheet and BOO! You’ve got yourself a classic Halloween icon. But what does that ghosts look like when he's shy? Or in love? Or a pirate, a llama, a Bona 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, children, and anyone in need of a friendly fright.
I'm not entirely sure what to say about 100 Ghosts. I didn't really have any feelings one way or the other about the book. It's just a book with pictures of different types of ghosts. When I pick up a book, I want something that intrigues me. It has to challenge me on an intellectual level. 100 Ghosts obviously didn't do that.
That being said, it was a cute book. The book made me chuckle quite a few times. I loved all of the geeky references. There were Star Wars and Harry Potter references, along with a few superheroes. The Harry Potter reference was my favorite.
100 Ghosts would make a great coffee table book for Halloween. It might also make a cute book for children, although I'm not sure they would understand all of the jokes and references.
I give 100 Ghosts: 3/5.

I received this book from the publisher, Quirk Books, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
