Introducing Jinnie Ghost, thin as the wind, with hair as white as the feathers of owls and eyes like water. Jinnie whispers dreams to children as they sleep. She brings Charlotte's dolls to life, makes Amy's carpet bubble with frogs and toads and conjures up a giant to carry Joe away shoulder-high to his castle in the sky. But the break of dawn takes Jinnie away... and the children wake to a new day, brushing wonder from their eyes. This perfectly-pitched poem takes readers on a thrilling fantasy journey, raising a shiver or two on the way, but returning them safe and sound in the morning.

Review:

Poetic and lyrical ... Beautiful, ethereal Jinnie floats through a succession of colourful, gauzy illustrations, all spangled with decorative detail. (Times Educational Supplement)

This lyrical poem is matched by Jane Ray's ethereal illustrations, full of exotic fabrics and textures and hypnotic colours. A beautiful book to own and a delight to read aloud. (The Ultimate First Book Guide)

There’s a spell-binding lyricism to this magical story about Jinnie Ghost who floats along the street calling on all the children as they sleep. Jinnie Ghost brings dreams, beautiful dreams, frightening dreams, active dreams and Jane Ray captures them all in her cleverly created and atmospheric illustrations. (Book Ahead 0-7)
