You are in for a good time with this performance. To get an Idea of what to expect take a look at this video

Ghost Files: The Haunting Truth, by the illustrious (fictional) Ghost
Society is a really fun, interactive book about the paranormal.

Ghost Files is made up of single and double-page spreads dedicated
to the basics of the paranormal–ectoplasm, poltergeists, doppelgangers,
you name it–and “true” stories about supposedly haunted places.
In one double-page spread, the Ghost Society tackles the story of
Glamis Castle, a very real attraction in Scotland, and its haunted history. A beautiful black and white illustration of the castle inhabits the center of the page, with pull tabs lined up along each side. As you read down the page you pull out a tab to read more juicy tidbits about the tragedies of Glamis Castle.
Whether it’s moving pieces of the page, odd fold-outs or a captain’s log attached to the page, it’s a really beautifully constructed book full of surprises. One of my favorite parts was an attached envelope on the last
page from the Harper Collins “editors” explaining how the mysterious book came to their office and their attempts to track down the Ghost Society turned up a “dead end”–a derelict building and no living society members.
