Sir Simon: Super Scarer
Sir Simon: Super Scarer | Cale Atkinson
6 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
A delightful, funny story of friendship, ghost chores, a spooky house and a professional haunter. Meet Sir Simon, Super Scarer. He's a professional ghost who has been transferred to his first house. And just in time! He was getting tired of haunting bus stops and forests and potatoes. And to top it off, this house is occupied by an old lady -- they're the easiest to haunt! But things don't go as planned when it turns out a KID comes with this old lady. Chester spots Simon immediately and peppers him with questions. Simon is exasperated. . . until he realizes he can trick Chester into doing his ghost chores. Spooky sounds, footsteps in the attic, creaks on the stairs -- these things don't happen on their own, you know! After a long night of haunting, it seems that maybe Chester isn't cut out to be a ghost, so Simon decides to help with Chester's human chores. Turns out Simon isn't cut out for human chores either. But maybe they're both cut out to be friends . . .

Came across these books in my search for more #HalloweenTheme kids books. These are not directly related to Halloween, but could still be read and enjoyed in the fall. Sir Simon is a favourite of mine! #nontheme #TeamSlaughter

Love this adorable little ghost story. Look at that carpet! 👀 👻 Can you guess what the pattern is from ?

JoScho Love it! Can you read the paper that is coming out of the typewriter? I wonder if that is also a nod to The Shining. 1mo
DaveGreen7777 Hmmm... the pattern on the carpet reminds me of the original Suspiria movie. Is that where it‘s from? 🧐 1mo
Meaw_catlady @JoScho no it‘s just scribbled lines. But the stacks make me think of it haha 1mo

Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 I‘m not sure what that is!!! But this carpet is from Kubrick‘s the Shining 1mo
JoScho Yep I still think it is a reference and I love it. 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Suspiria was a horror movie from the late 1970‘s about a haunted dance academy! Truth be told, I consider it very overrated, although it is visually striking with its gorgeous sets and vivid colors! That all said, I‘m kicking myself now that I didn‘t realize the pattern was from The Shining instead! 😂 👻 1mo

Sir Simon: Super Scarer by Cale Atkinson is a beautifully illustrated and adorable tale about a friendship between a ghost and a boy, who bond over the chores that they have to complete. I would very highly recommend this one!

5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book was super cute. Simon the ghost is looking forward to his very own house to haunt. He has even heard there will be grandparents which as the best. But they also come with a little surprise. This book is great for any time of the year. No Halloween needed. Just a lively ghost story, and a friend.
