THE RIGHT ONE FOR RODERIC, by Violeta Noy, Candlewick Press


All ghosts wear white sheets. That’s just what ghosts do. White sheets are good for haunting people, and they make the ghosts feel like part of one big family. But one little ghost named Roderic wants to wear something different. He tries all sorts of things: a bag, a rug, a boot. Can he find the right one for him? Find out in this colorful picture book from debut author-illustrator Violeta Noy.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book teaches how it’s okay to be different. It’s okay to be yourself, have your own style and be happy with whom you are. It also teaches that change is good.

The lessons taught in this book are spoken by the youngest ghost of a really large family, showing that even adults and other older siblings can learn from the youngest of kids. Speaking up and telling adults about something that’s important to you is one of the lessons, and it has a great outcome.

The use of short sentences and colorful, one-dimensional illustrations will keep little readers engaged. Although themed with ghosts, this story could be told anytime of the year, but, it is obviously a Halloween book.

An excellent picture book for first-time readers.
