Might have to check this one out for Georgia: Anya's Ghost -- Anya inherits more than just bruises and scrapes from a nasty fall into a well--she's now haunted by a ghost named Emily that won't leave her alone. The pair become fast friends, until Anya realizes that Emily may not be who she says she is... A coming of age tale with a dash of engaging horror.
The Dark by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Jon Klassen. Ive looked at this as Jon Klassen is a favourite children's book illustrator of mine, his work is child friendly but quite sophisticated in the overall look of the work he creates. In reference to the theme of my book being Pandoras Box, this book uses dark and light and the idea of fear in a child friendly way.
