She Wanted to Be Haunted

We rated this book:


Clarissa, the bright pink cottage, just wanted to be like her parents, looming, dark and haunted. So, Clarissa sets off to make herself uninviting. At first, she tries to be gloomy like her father and encase herself in shadows. Then she tried to unleash the smelliest stench to be just like her mother. However, all of Clarissa’s plans quickly backfire, leaving Clarissa just as delightfully pink as when she started. Will Clarissa ever be terrifying, grim, and smelly like her parents, or will she learn an even more important lesson?

In this adorable rhyming tale of a house that wants to be haunted, readers will learn the most valuable lesson of all that it’s ok to be yourself. Marcus Ewert delivers a delightfully original story that will have readers giggling while combining the bright, fun illustrations by Susie Ghremani makes this a fun and engaging story. She Wanted To Be Haunted is the perfect book for Halloween time but also has a relevant message that can be read and discussed throughout the year.
