Author Appearance – Ghost Files – The Haunting Truth

Once Upon a Story…. Presents

Authors Eugene Yelchin & Mary Kuryla creative husband and wife team

Featuring their book Ghost Files: The Haunting Truth

Sunday, November 2nd at 6:00PM

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.

Go Home Mrs. Beekman

Once Upon a Story ….
Saturday story time 11:00AM

Author Ann Stampler read from her new book this week at our Saturday storytime. We have signed copies in the store. This is a perfect story for those little ones heading off to school for the first time.

Go Home, Mrs. Beekman!
K-Gr 2—Emily is heading off for her first day of school, and she insists that her mother stays with her. “Forever!” “I promise….And a promise is a promise. I’ll stay at school for a million gazillion years with my Emily right on my lap.” Mrs. Beekman is true to her word. Even when her daughter discovers that school is actually a fun place, the woman won’t leave. Teacher Sue nicely but firmly insists repeatedly that it’s time for all adults to go home, but Mrs. Beekman is not deterred. She resorts to disguising herself as a coatrack and, on subsequent days, as a big purple hat, green dog, yellow bird, and oversize hula hoop. Finally, Emily kindly convinces her mother that she wants to be in school by herself. Careful readers will note that Mrs. Beekman’s disguises match items Emily mentions in the book’s first pages. The illustrations work perfectly with the text. The characters’ facial expressions are spot-on, and Carrington captures the feel of kindergarten, the love between Emily and her mother, and a child’s first steps toward independence. This enjoyable if slightly familiar tale would work well for one-on-one sharing or storytime.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
