The Proton Vac That’s nowhere near all of the ones I’ve found and I’m under no illusion that I’ve found them all yetOh and the story’s a lot of fun as well Sir Simon Spookington has haunted a lot of things in his career but this is his first time haunting a house He’s excited to be haunting grandparents as old people are on top of The Pyramid of Haunting With his free time because as we all know old people sleep all the time 😜 Sir Simon is looking forward to working on his novel but things don’t exactly go to plan SO MUCH FUN 👻 This is a cute story about a ghost named Simon He's a super scarer taking his Ghost chores very seriously After he gets assigned to haunt a house he thinks things are going to be easy when a grandmother moves in The problem though is that she's brought her grandson Chester Rather than being scared of Simon Chester is curious about him Too curious To get the kid off his back Simon enlists him as an honourary Ghost and gets him to take over all the Ghost chores so Simon can do his cross stitch and work on his novel of course Things don't go so well though; Chester's not very good at Ghost chores and as it turns out Simon's not very good at human chores But the two eventually become friends and work to their own strengthsThe retro style illustrations are pretty cute There's lots to look at especially on the spreads where the duo are depicted in various rooms of the house The end papers are also a lot of fun And don't miss the illustration on the back cover if you want to crack a smileThis is a simple story about friendship with just the right amount of spookiness and humour for the Halloween seasonuotable moment Since I now have two grandchildren I am finding treasures in the children's book world This is one of those A ghost is busy performing his nightly haunting chores when he is interrupted by a new addition to the family A little boy Although the story is told through the eyes of the ghost and how he makes friends with the little boy the underlying story is just so very sweet 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 novelBut 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 himThis 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 illustrationsThanks to Tundra Books and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review Sir Simon Super Scarer is one of the cutest children's books that I've read in a while I smiled the whole way through I couldn't help but laugh at the adorable little facial expressions and the issues that Simon runs into when he finds out that the tenant in his first ever haunted home is actually a little boy who just wants to be Simon's friend the artwork is stunning and make the story that much wonderful I am hoping to see books with Sir Simon in them and soon A huge thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I truly appreciate it MY RATING 55 STARS I received a copy from Penguin Random House Canada and Tundra Books in exchange for a honest review I am truly forever grateful to the wonderful team at PRH Canada for sending me this copy because it has introduced me to my new favourite genre of children novels I know I may be a little too old for them but Sir Simon reminded me the pure joy of reading a picture book Cale Atkinson is mostly known for his illustrative works they're so stinkin' adorable but his writing is exception as well Sir Simon tells the story of a ghost named Sir Simon He's been a ghost for a long time and will waste none to tell you that he works really hard to do his job well He does a lot of ghost chores for example There is a set schedule for him every single day to haunt whatever he's assigned to One hour he might have to make spooky noises in the vents and the next he would have to walk back and forth down the halls for realistic footstep sounds Things change when the house Sir Simon is haunting allows for the residency of an elderly grandmother and much to his surprise a child Chester is a spunky little rascal Instead of being worried over seeing an adorable spooky ghost he's delighted to have a friend instead He follows everything Sir Simon tells him to do Only until something is revealed does Sir Simon may feel guilty for his actions towards Chester Reader I am in love with this story Not only did the pictures compliment so well with the story but the story line almost made me cry I had to take a long breath when the plot twist was revealed Every picture was a piece of art with so many details left to uncover You would definitely not being doing the book justice by reading it once You must read Repeat And read it again MY RECOMMENDATIONREAD THIS BOOK BUY IT SHARE IT WITH A YOUNG ONE OR JUST KEEP IT FOR YOUR HEART SIR SIMON is a sweet story of a professional ghost who has been assigned to haunt a new house But things don’t go as planned as a smart kid comes with the house one who figures Simon out and haunts him with too many uestions A funny beautifully illustrated tale of a ghost a little boy and an unlikely friendship 55Thank you to the author Penguin Random House Canada and NetGalley for the review copy Opinions are mine#SirSimonSuperScarer #NetGalley Sir Simon is a ghost that is finally moving into a haunted house but who is also moving in?
