Ghostbusters: 1 to 10 Slimer's Loose Again Book Review

 By Paul Rudoff on Jan. 4, 2020 at 8:59 PM , Categories: Books

Insight Editions will release six educational PlayPop books in 2020, which introduce kids to beloved characters and films, such as Ghostbusters and E.T., while developing essential skills and concepts including first words, counting, colors, and shapes. The line begins with two titles set for release on February 4, 2020: Ghostbusters: 1 to 10 Slimer's Loose Again and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: E.T.'s First Words. Even though the release date is a month away, the kind folks at Insight Editions sent along copies of both books now, so I might as well do an EARLY REVIEW of them. (The E.T. review can be found on The Corner Penthouse.)


Ghostbusters: 1 to 10 Slimer's Loose Again is an educational board book for ages "infant and up", written by Kate B. Jerome with illustrations by Jeff Harvey. (No, not that Jeff Harvey, wrestling fans.) The book measures 7"x7" and contains 20 die-cut pages, with numbered tabs around the top and right sides.


Since the book is meant for infants, the story is very simple. Slimer escapes from a ghost trap and interacts with his community in an attempt to have fun and make friends, all while helping readers learn to count from one to ten. The Ecto-1A and the Ghostbusters both make appearances on a few pages. Overall, the book plays out like an episode of Slimer!, with a Casper plot, and a cute illustrative style similar to that of the Little Golden Books series. Highly recommended if you have little ones you want to get hooked on Ghostbusters while they're young, or if you simply want a cute little book to display on a shelf amongst your other Ghostbusters collectibles.


Both PopPlay books - Ghostbusters: 1 to 10 Slimer's Loose Again and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: E.T.'s First Words - are currently available for pre-order from Amazon.


According to the press release: "In Summer 2020, the PlayPop series continues with books inspired by Back to the Future and Jim Henson's Labyrinth, and in Fall 2020, a board book based on The Dark Crystal and another engaging Ghostbusters title will be released." You can surely bet that Spook Central will review that other Ghostbusters PlayPop book later this year.
