Praise for Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories

“[This] series of Christmas ghost stories, miniature books chosen and illustrated by the cartoonist Seth … [offers] chills—and charm. ”
—John Williams, New York Times Book Review

“I just bought my set of these and they … are … PERFECT. I hope they do these every year. ”
—Patton Oswalt

“The tension and dread creep through each story like an unseen monster, gaining in size and with each page and readying to pounce. Seth’s monochromatic and stark illustrations throughout add an extra dose of spooky to these stories of the supernatural. ”
—Lindsey Childs, Prairie Fire

“These are beautiful little books … [My family’s] been reading them at home, and we’ve actually put them away so we can re-read them on Christmas Eve. ”
—Matt Galloway, CBC’s Metro Morning

“For Seth, this is really a labour of love. ”
—Peter Robb, Ottawa Citizen

“The two classic Christmas ghost stories that Seth and Biblioasis fashioned last year were a huge success for us. Nifty packaging, striking design—so Seth. ”
—Ben McNally, Ben McNally Books, Toronto, ON

“Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories series resurrects the legacy of fireside tales at Christmas with these beautifully illustrated editions. ”
—John Toews, McNally Robinson Booksellers, Winnipeg, MB
