Little Ghost Party
Abrams | August 2013

Little Ghost is hosting a dance party, and you’re invited! By simply tilting the book, children will be captivated by moving various parts of each party guest to replicate the instructed dance moves, or create their own! In addition, young readers will practice associating directional phrases with motor skills, through text that prompts left and right turns, upward and downward tilts, and more. Evoking memories of such vintage toys as Wooly Willy and mini labyrinth games, this hilariously addictive and irresistibly crafted package will draw in readers of all ages.
