Reviews

"Matt and Hiroko have once again created an intriguing and spirited telling of a piece of Japanese mythology and cult history. Following on the back of their wonderfully successful books Yokai Attack and Ninja Attack, Yurei Attack is a fantastic read and beautifully illustrated by Shinkichi. This book will become a must for anyone that loves the unusual and wonderfully bizarre aspects of Japanese ghost stories." --Richard Taylor, founder, WETA Workshop
"Yurei Attack! The Japanese Ghost Survival Guide is the latest book by husband-and-wife author duo Hiroko Yoda and Matt Alt. Following Yokai Attack! (about monsters), and Ninja Attack!, their latest effort is an informative compendium of yurei (or ghost) stories from Japanese history, for adults and children alike. With a chatty, readable style backed up by serious scholarship and brought to life by Shinkichi's grisly illustrations, Yurei Attack! is a window into this rich vein of Japanese culture." --JapanBackPacker.com blog
"Hunting ghosts is the perfect activity especially this Halloween season! If you do not have the courage to do it but you really want to try, Yokai Attack! is here to guide you in overcoming your fear of ghosts. So what are you waiting for, start your ghost hunting adventures!" --Otaku Asia Magazine
