PRAISE FOR TOBIAS AND THE SUPER SCARY GHOST BOOK
“A Halloween romp for younger boys and girls.” – The Daily Mail
“Percival is the illustrator of the Skulduggery Pleasant novels and this, his first picture book, has some lovely delicate touches behind the cartoon faces of the children – notice how Tobias fades gently as the years have passed outside” – The Daily Mail
“A heart-warming yet frightfully ghoulish story; Percival’s unique use of colour coupled with his multi-media approach to illustration make this debut picture book a welcomed breath of fresh air.” – Primary Times
“Just the right amount of fun and fear.” – Mums Know Best
“A gloriously fun book” – Derek Landy author of Skulduggery Pleasant

Very nice story, the illustrations were different - they reminded me of graphic novels for older children, not too sweet or sappy.
Haven't tried it out on my two-year-old yet but think he'll love it.
Story is good, about not being scared and finding a family.
Nice picture book.
We loved it when Ethan found Mr. Tipps. The mix of photos and sketches is something we have spotted in all of Tom's books and love it! Ethan was our favourite character. We didn't like it when Mr. Tipps was sad. We would like to know if the baby is Tom's other son and if the fire place and front room are photos of Tom's actual house!
I enjoyed searching for all the little details in the pictures. I am learning to be an illustrator, so i love it primarily for the images. The illustrator has used an interesting combination of photos and other mixed media elements that really adds to the character of the book.
Mr Tipps is a lovely character, and the book has you routing for him all the way through. It is filled with argh! and aww moments. Be brave Mr Tipps!
