Ages 4-8. Reminiscent of the popular chant "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," this brightly illustrated romp features two costumed children who venture out into the neighborhood in search of a ghost. Each verse begins with "We're going on a ghost hunt to catch a trick-or-treat ghost. / We're not afraid . . . looking high looking low." Along the way, the children encounter various obstacles: an "ooky spooky" swamp, a haunted house with goblins, bats who skitter and scat, and dancing skeleton bones. When they enter a cave and spot the ghost, they become frightened and run back past the haunts. The reassuring last page reveals that the ghost is only a sheet draped over a chair. The often-rhymed text is filled with sound effects that invite children to chant along. The catchy text coupled with the bright, bold-lined illustrations make this a good read-aloud for an autumn pre-school story hour. Helen Rosenberg
