If you’re looking for a spooky and fun story to support, Ghosts Are People Too might be it. From award-winning talent Peter Ricq, the 42-page illustrated book about a ghost named Ethan Alby is on Kickstarter.
Ghosts Are People Too has been described as a “charming spooky book” that will appeal to readers of all ages. This book contains seven ways to find ghosts and three “true, friendly” ghost stories. According to the press release, if you’re a fan of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman, you’re likely enjoy this title.
The official description reads:
Ethan has a family—just like you. He likes playing with toys and his dog, Mini Ricky. Sometimes, though, Ethan gets scared. In GHOSTS ARE PEOPLE TOO, Ethan shares what scares him, how difficult it is to share a home with a living girl he’s fallen for (when she doesn’t even know he exists), and why we shouldn’t be afraid of one another.
This offering from Ricq has already garnered positive responses from writers and artists. Mariah McCourt (writer of Ash & Thorn) shared, “Charmingly strange, scary and sweet, Ghosts Are People Too gives you an Edward Gorey style tale with nods to classic and contemporary creepy crawlies. A lot of fun if you have anyone in your life who likes their spookiness with a little heart (not a literal one!) and great for kids who like theirs stories on the darker side.”
As for Ricq’s interest in writing such a story, he shared, “Halloween season has been my favorite season since I was a child. It had a sense of danger and adventure and that feeling has never dissipated since. I remember watching Fright Night and The Thing from Outer Space coming home from Trick or Treating when I was around 7 years old and those moments of counting your treats along with the excitement of monsters on the TV was so magical, more so than any other holiday. I’ve since always had a touch of horror, danger, and adventure in my work since.”
Coming to the Kickstarter campaign, the initial goal is to collect $11,286. As of writing this, it has reached $4,980 in funding. The perks include a hardcover copy, illustrations, and a lot more.
For those wondering about Ricq, he’s a virtual artist, television producer, writer, designer, art director, music composer, director, and performer. The first animated TV series he sold (with his partners) was The League of Super Evil. He went on to co-create a number of animated shows including Oh No! It’s an Alien Invasion and Freaktown. His directorial debut was the 2017 film, Dead Shack.
