Canadian picture book author artist Cale Atkinson whips up a fantastic friendly ghost story in Sir Simon Super Scarer, which chronicles the trials and travails of its titular spirit, as he takes up his first job haunting a house Hoping for some elderly people to scare, as they make the easiest targets, leaving him free time to pursue his other interests, Simon instead discovers that his new house comes with a young boy named Chester Will Chester prove himself an adept ghost assistant Will Simon become a human helper Or will something even better happen to both of them Having enjoyed many of Atkinson s earlier stories, particularly his recent Where Oliver Fits , I picked up Sir Simon Super Scarer with some high expectations I enjoy tales about friendly ghosts, and this is a worthy addition to the genre The story is sweet and ultimately heartwarming, and the digital artwork colorful and appealing I appreciated some of the visual formatting here, in the scenes depicting the various tasks set for Chester by Simon, and then for Simon by Chester Recommended to readers who enjoy titles such as Robert Bright s Georgie , and to anyone looking for gentler ghost stories in general. Sir Simon is a card carrying ghostest with the mostest He s a professional at haunting everything from forests and boats to ukeleles and even pizza He s being transferred to his very first haunted house and is excited to find that grandparents are moving into his house In the pyramid of haunting, old people are at the top because they sleep all the time Now Simon will have plenty of spare time away from his chores like stomping in the attic and standing in windows wearing old timey clothes in the early morning hours to pursue his hobbies of cross stitching, learning French, and even writing a novel.But not only does a sweet cookie baking grandmother move in to the house, so does Chester a kid Kids are at the very bottom of the pyramid of haunting they re way too curious Simon thinks he ll have to spend all his time doing ghost chores with Chester living in the house or maybe he can teach Chester how to do the chores for him This is a really entertaining story about the unlikely friendship between a ghost and a boy that s sure to bring plenty of laughs from both kids and adults Sir Simon Super Scarer is an excellent book for parents to read aloud and young emerging readers will enjoy the silly illustrations.Thanks to Tundra Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review. Sir Simon is a real, honest to goodness ghost He haunts all sorts of things and finally gets promoted to house haunting He thinks it will be a grandparent who moves in, but there is a child as well This is a fun story about Chester, the boy who lives in the house, trying to be a ghost and not faring well, then Simon tries to be like a boy and fails miserably They discover that they are very different, but they have some things in common and can still be great friends A cute story about how you can be friends with people even if they are different from you It is also a great story to read at Hallowe en The illustrations are wonderful, some large, some smaller in a series format My grandson enjoyed the story and spent hours making scary sounds after we finished reading Fortunately he did not want to wear a ghost costume.
