Five Little Ghosts

author: Lily Murray
illustrator: Holly Surplice

Five little ghosts floated off one day,
over the hills and far away.
Mama Ghost said, "Fly back to me!"
How many ghostlings can you see?

Join five adorable ghostlings on a lift-the-flap adventure through a spooky forest. There’s so much to see as Mama Ghost and her ghostlings float through a pumpkin patch, play peek-a-boo in a misty wood, and explore a haunted house. Along the way, they meet all kinds of friendly, festive animals. But wait—the ghostlings are disappearing one by one. Whatever could they be up to? Lift the flaps to find the ghostlings and discover a fantastic surprise ending.

Based on the nursery rhyme “Five Little Ducks,” this cheerful lift-the-flap book is perfect for sharing a spooky story time at Halloween.
