Filled with onomatopoeia, this book with a delightfully spooky twist will have young readers listening for those spooky sounds and chanting, 'What's that noise that I can hear? I'm not scared!'

The illustrations for Sounds Spooky were created using an innovative combination of sculpture, photography and digital manipulation. 


The attention to detail is exquisite... this is a haunted house to which you’ll want to return.
— David Witt, Adelaide's Child
Conceptually and artistically, this is a brilliant, delightful picture book that is sure to become a favourite on the bookshelf of any young child. For older readers there is a certain poignancy in its subtle subtext that further enriches an already exceptional work.
— Kevin Steinberger, Magpies
