A ghostly tour guide from a small town in Queensland has launched a ghost book aimed at the young, with the help of a ghost.
The book has been created by local photographer Joe Hodge, who lives in Grafton, about 90 kilometres (56 miles) north-west of Brisbane.
“We want to educate the public about the spirits of the past and help them to get excited about ghosts and spirits in the future,” Mr Hodge said.
“If you want to know what a ghost looks like, go to a museum or museum of natural history, that’s what the ghost book is for.”
Mr Hodge has been working on the book for more than a year, as part of a project to educate people about ghosts in Queensland.
“I thought, why don’t we create a book that’s fun for the children?”
Mr Hoke said.
He said the idea for the ghost tour came about when he had a conversation with his friend in the past about a ghost tour they had done.
“It turns out I have a lot of friends who have been to a lot more places and have seen a lot, so I thought I’d do a ghost guide book for them.”
Mr Pomeroy said he was amazed by how the ghost-themed book turned out.
“The people who’ve seen it have all said, ‘I don’t think I would have done that’,” he said.
The ghost guide is now available in the bookstores of a number of Australian towns and cities, including in the northern city of Perth.
