*Review* The Spicy Ghost by Vy Lien


Genre: Children's 3-7
Published: April 22, 2023
Pages: 38

The Spicy Ghost is a rhyming adventure about sweet friendships and fiery foods. Blandon is no ordinary ghost. 

He loves eating spicy food! His reaction to food is something to behold and it often leads to messy misunderstandings. 

Follow Blandon on a fun rhyming adventure filled with a variety of foods and true friendships.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This was a cute rhyming story with some serious Casper the Friendly Ghost vibes to it. Blandon just likes to eat food that would give the average human a major ulcer (probably, I'm not a doctor). This leads to people thinking that he's angry, or scary, or just plain mean. But he's really just misunderstood because he likes his food to have some flavor, and that is a little odd for those of us that are as white as a ghost. 

The illustrations in this book were very bright and colorful, and I loved the font used for the narration, especially the way color and size was changed for emphasis. While I don't typically look for those things in novels that I read as an adult, for a children's book, it's a really nice touch that I appreciate. Overall I give this book 4.13 out of 5 stars. - Katie
