Closet Ghosts by Uma Krishnaswami

Book Description

Moving to a new place is hard enough without finding a bunch of mean, nasty ghosts in your closet. This looks like a job for Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god, who can change shape in the blink of an eye and chase goblins and demons away with his thundering voice. When Hanuman answers Anu's plea for help, Anu rejoices-until she realizes that those pesky ghosts don't seem to be going anywhere.Uma Krishnaswami effortlessly weaves motifs from Indian mythology into this bubbly story of ultimately finding comfort in a new place, and Shiraaz Bhabha's exquisitely detailed acrylic paintings glow on the page. The Closet Ghosts is a treat that will delight and amaze any child who has faced a big change. . . or had ghosts in her closet.

US Kirkus Review » Faced with the universal fear of finding a welcoming place, Anu must rid her new home of the ghosts that are in her closet, as well as find friendship with her new classmates. Comforted by the promise of help from Hanuman (an important figure in Hindu mythology), she ultimately realizes that she will have to find the solution herself. She settles on a plan that changes a scary place into one that is friendly and welcoming, and the ghosts can't stand it anymore. Bhabha's color-drenched paintings perfectly complement Krishnaswami's tale that incorporates a contemporary setting with the tradition of the Hindu Monkey God. The ghosts ("with backward pointing feet") are outlined in white, but wear brightly colored clothing over nearly transparent bodies, and Bhabha's visualization of the Monkey God is perfect. A unique tale that is worthy of a wide audience. (Picture book. 4-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
