Sam Wu is NOT afraid of GHOSTS


Sam Wu is Not Afraid of Ghosts or Butterbutt the cat, or snakes, or the Astro Blast Simulator. He is wary of being shown up by Ralph Philip Zinkerman the Third. He’s a little concerned at his friends’ reaction when they come to tea for the first time. Sam is very anxious about returning to school after ‘The Unfortunate Incident that Will Never Be Mentioned Again.’

Sam Wu is Not Afraid of Ghosts‘is a genuinely funny and appealing chapter book for newer readers. I love Nathan Reed’s anecdotal notes and incidental illustrations. I love the main character, and his eagle-eyed sister, Lucy. We are delighted to recommend this title to our readers. Look out for Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Sharks

Sam Wu is NOT afraid of Ghosts

Katie & Kevin Tsang, illustrated by Nathan Reed


Sam Wu is NOT afraid of Ghosts or snakes or Butterbutt the cat, or an Astro Blast Simulator. It seems our hero follows the example set by Captain Jane and Spaceman Jack from his favourite show, Space Blasters. He’s not afraid… or is he?
This is our introduction to  a riotously funny, approachable and endearing character in a great new chapter book series! With his heart in his mouth and Spaceblaster rules in his head, Sam’s gearing up to face ventures into bold new territories. Could it be that he’s the bravest or is this just a ruse? After all, Sam’s aware that everyone around him seems to be the fastest, the tallest, the best at everything else. Then again, after the ‘unfortunate incident that shall never be mentioned again‘, well there’s ground to make up. What’s more, Ralph Zinkerman the Third is quick to label him as Wu-ser, which rhymes with….  So is it possible that Sam’s story is straight, that he’s able to convince his friends? First of all, of course, there’s a traditional dinner with turnip cake included. Then again, there’ Na-na. Therefore, Bookwagon invites readers to watch out for Fang, join the table for tea and sit back to enjoy Sam Wu is NOT afraid of Ghosts.
