Ghostbusters: Who You Gonna Call? by John Sazaklis- OPTIONAL

Sazaklis, John. Ghostbusters: Who You Gonna Call?, PICTURE BOOK. Golden Books, 2016. $4.99. Three scientists are convinced that ghosts are real and they are going to find the evidence to prove it. Once they start finding ghosts, they have to figure out a way to contain them. They all work together to detect the ghosts and trap them. They run into trouble when a ghost-loving hotel custodian decides to unleash hundreds of ghosts around the city. Once the crew of Ghostbusters finally corals all the ghosts, everyone in the city knows who to call. This is a replication of the new Ghostbusters movie, with the all-female cast. The illustrations are actually really great and do a good job scaling down the movie to a kid friendly level. That being said, the story itself is much too convoluted. There are a lot of details necessary for the flow of the movie, that might not be as necessary for the book. It was just a little too much to make sense of, and I’m an adult. This would be a great gift for a Ghostbusters lover. EL- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
