A World Full of Ghosts is a picture book by Charis Cotter, with illustrations by Marc Mongeau. It covers some of the types of ghosts found in stories from around the world. La Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Mexico and Halloween are also covered. The book doesn't give the pronunciation for Samhain (Sow or Sah-win) or that 'hallow' is another word for saint.

There are also thirteen ghost stories claimed to be true. A map of the word gives the page number for the ghosts of a region mentioned in the book. The scariness of the ghosts is rated by skulls at the top of the page, from one skull to three.

Some ghosts should be quite frightening to those on whom they'd like to wreak vengeance. Some are helpful (I wouldn't mind having one of those Silky ghosts who clean the house while the household sleeps). Some are just sad, such as the hungry ghosts who have no family left to feed them, the outcasts in life doomed to wander in death, or the unbaptized children who just want to go to heaven. The ones who eat souls scared me the most.

These are the ghosts covered: Afrit, Ahkiyyini, Aumakua, Awiri, Banshee, Brahmadaitya, Chindi, Duppy, Egui, Ibambo, Lapu, Liekkio, Nuggle, Rhea, Sea Ghost, Shojo, Silky, Spunkie, Stone Ghosts, the Wandering Gaucho, and Yurei.

This book should be interesting for ghost fans from mid-elementary school age on up.

I received a copy for an honest opinion. I really enjoyed the entire story and the way the author was able to weave the mystery of the house and the dollhouse. I don't want to give any spoilers but would definitely recommend that you read it. This is not my usual genre but the story had me glued to it from the first page.

I was definitely not the target audience for this book, but I think my teen nieces will find it interesting.
