What a Treat! No Such Thing by Ella Bailey

Objects moving around the house or disappearing?  Snacks stolen from the fridge?  A smashed china vase? Georgia is one savvy sleuth! She can always explain random, odd things happening around her in a logical and rational way.  Or maybe she’s so sure that there’s no such thing as ghosts that she can’t see what’s right in front of her!

Super-cute and friendly ghosts make mischief in this creative ghost story.  Watch your little one have fun finding hidden ghosts on each page.  Even those easily scared will find these little ghosts charming and delightful!

My four-year-old son declared that he loves this book so much that, “We need to read it every single day for forever and ever!”  I’m more than happy to oblige him. No Such Thing is a favorite!
