Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier

My oldest daughter cannot get enough of graphic novels. Her favorite author is Raina Telgemeier. Miss Telgemeier has a great bibliography of some really fun and thought provoking books. Of course my kid has all of them. When we found out that she would be releasing a new book in September we didn't just order it, we PRE-ORDERED it.

When the book finally arrived my daughter devoured it in just a few hours. After she read it a few more times she left it on my bedside. That is the sign that she wanted me to read it.

I settled in and I was pleasantly surprised at the plot of the story.

Three words- DIA DE LOS MUERTOS


Yup I was completely shocked to find that the story revolves around one of my favorite holidays. 2 young sisters move to a new town near the coast. This town just happens to be the perfect place for ghosts to meet.

As the girls and their new friends deal with trying to get their heads around mortality they learn all about the beautiful traditions of Dia de los Muertos.

I highly recommend this book for anyone! The images are gorgeous and the story is heartwarming.
