Just in time for Halloween, cartoonist Peter Ricq is bringing Ghost Are People Too to Kickstarter. The 42 page illustrated book, about a simple ordinary ghost named Ethan Alby, is written and drawn for spooky living people of all ages and perfect for Halloween.
Ethan has a family—just like you. He likes playing with toys and his dog, Mini Ricky. Sometimes, though, Ethan gets scared. In Ghost Are People Too, Ethan shares what scares him, how difficult it is to share a home with a living girl he’s fallen for (when she doesn’t even know he exists), and why we shouldn’t be afraid of one another.
Ghost Are People Too is a charming spooky book for readers of all ages, especially young readers, adolescents and adults who love Tim Burton’s books and films, as well as the novels and picture books written by Neil Gaiman, and most especially fans of Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies.
The Kickstarter campaign runs until November 20 and has a goal of $15,000 goal (Canadian dollars). You can get a PDF copy for $10 Canadian (about $8 in US dollars). The hardcover copy is $20 Canadian (about $16 US dollars). Other rewards include autographed copies, doodles, more art, and more.
