Jinnie Ghost

The varied refrain is mysterious and rhythmic: “Here comes Jinnie, the children call
But she doesn't turn her head, if she hears them at all.”

When the children are asleep, Jinnie creeps into their dreams and makes them come true. Ellen dives with dolphins, Owen boogies with bogeymen, Joe rides on a giant’s back to his castle in the sky…

I was very excited and proud when Jane Ray asked me to write a ghost story for her to illustrate. We had worked together on Fairy Tales (Walker Books) and I felt very honoured to be given a chance to work again with this wonderful illustrator. Jane was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway award for her illustrations for both Fairy Tales and Jinnie Ghost.
