I find comics to be the perfect way to see the world in a new way that I’ve not thought of before and Ghosts was no different for me. Lately I’ve especially been enjoying children’s books and even if the reading is easy, it’s usually profound. I found Ghosts with the NPR Book Concierge, indeed it was on many of the best of 2016 lists that I read in December.

Ghosts is quite fun; a family moves to a new town for the health of one of the daughters, and in that town there are ghosts that everyone can see. Death is nothing to be frightened of, it’s only a change in where you will be, where your spirit resides. But in this town they still see each other during the grand celebration of The Day of the Dead.

If you want a fun afternoon read, pick up Ghosts and think about life and death from a lovely perspective.
