HASH(0x9b4c3144) out of 5 stars If This Book Seems Familiar ... 9 Jan. 2013
By delicateflower152 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
... then you probably remember Michael Rosen's classic "We're Going On A Bear Hunt." Susan Pearson's "We're Going On A Ghost Hunt" mimics the rhythms and storyline - with a ghost substituting for the bear - of that children's book. A repetitious chorus is inserted between each locale which the children must traverse in their "ghost hunt."

Although not a "scary" book, parents of younger children, who have not yet learned to distinguish between real and imagined dangers, may want to wait to read We're Going On A Ghost Hunt" to those toddlers.

Charming illustrations, the use of onomatopoeia, and the somewhat fun story do not elevate "We're Going On A Ghost Hunt" to the level of "... Bear Hunt." The patterning after that beloved book, makes We're Going On A Ghost Hunt" a less than original work. It is primarily for this reason that I rated the book as deserving of only 3 stars.

HASH(0x9b4c39b4) out of 5 stars Good book for preschooler or early reader 3 Dec. 2012
By Maries - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I read this with my 3.5 year old, who liked it OK. He didn't completely fall in love with it, but he did like it. In the book, a group of children go on a ghost hunt, through various landscapes, then find a ghost and run away. Some positive things - good illustrations, good use of "sound" words (i.e. creak, squeak). Also, the theme was appealing to my child, who loves ghosts and Halloween. However, the story itself is not really that engaging, and he was mainly interested in finding the owls and other small creatures hidden in the trees. I think the illustrations were the best part of the book.

One thing I didn't love was the repetitive text. That's a good thing for beginning readers, but I found it kind of too repetitive - not just one line, but a paragraph. Basically, every page has about 10 lines on it, and they are nearly identical on every page except for the name of the landscape (windy woods, giant trees, etc.). The repetitive text is also not that great (i.e.: We're going on a ghost hunt. We're going to find a big one." There isn't a good rhythm to the words, and most of them don't rhyme, which actually makes it a bit awkward to read out loud. So the story itself doesn't really draw the reader in at all, but I found the theme (ghosts, nighttime, scary places) to be very appealing to my child in combination with great, detailed illustrations.

Overall, I'd recommend the books for kids who loves ghosts and are into that kind of thing. It's appropriate for any age - it's not done in a gruesome way at all and is pitched well for younger kids.

HASH(0x9b4c3e34) out of 5 stars Colorful, fun and not scary 1 Nov. 2012
By S. E. Rhoads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We're Going on a Ghost Hunt by Susan Pearson is a really fun and interesting picture book for children. Following the classic format of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, this book follows the adventures of four children who are out looking for ghosts. They travel through a murky swamp, a rattling cornfield, a fishy river, windy woods, a giant tree and a creaky graveyard. It's a playful, rhythmic story with lots of opportunities for movement (just like Bear Hunt). The repetition of the text is a great tool for getting children involved in the storytelling since even pre-readers can join in with the words.

My kids have been having a blast listening to this story for Halloween, but I'm sure that they will be reading it throughout the year. The detailed illustrations by S.D. Schindler nicely complement the story and provide extra enjoyment. Especially popular are all of the critters lurking about the different scenes. My kids loving pointing out the glowing eyeballs. The pictures provide something to enjoy about the book when my kids look at it all by themselves.

I am really happy with the quality of this book. It's quickly becoming a favorite, and it makes a great addition to our bookshelf.

HASH(0x9b4c3ce4) out of 5 stars Not quite a Bear Hunt 16 Nov. 2012
By Nicole Alger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My kids love the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" and they love Halloween spookiness. I was excited about this book, thinking it would combine the best of both worlds.

The truth, though, is it's just not as good as "We're Going on a Bear Hunt." Something just doesn't flow as well, even though it is basically the same story with the same tempo. My kids love it, but it just isn't as fun to read.

For those not familiar with the story, a group of kids go on a ghost hunt and the book is full of onomatopoetic sounds-- "squish" "rat-a-tattle" "splash" etc. The formula each page is the same, so the story is very chanty/sing-songy. After going through many obstacles, they finally find a ghost and run away, back through the same obstacles. If I wasn't comparing it with "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," I'd give it 4 stars.

HASH(0x9b4c3e28) out of 5 stars Not overly impressed 18 Feb. 2013
By ABShaef - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As with most kids' books, I typically judge it by two criteria: 1. How much my son enjoys it and 2. My experience reading it to him. This book just didn't really do it for either of us. My son hasn't been interested in it any of the times I've read it to him, and I can't say I blame him. He enjoys _We're Going on a Bear Hunt_, which is why I ordered this book, but this one lacks the magic that makes _Bear Hunt_ successful. What's most surprising to me is that even the cadence and rhythm feels a bit off, which is strange because _Ghost Hunt_ is modeled so closely on _Bear Hunt_. I'm sure this book would strike a chord for other readers, but it just hasn't done it for me or my son.
