This image my be subject to copyrightThe World of the Unknown: All About Ghosts

Originally printed in 1977 by Usborne. This childhood favourite is truly back from the dead!

All About Ghosts in the World Of The Unknown series is often quoted as one of the most borrowed books from the library. By that statement alone it is hard to imagine how many of today's ghost researchers who became fascinated by hauntings may have been inspired by this original issue of this book.

Screenwriter Laurence Rickard said: “I took this book out of my local library so many times they just gave it to me”.

Thousands petitioned on social media to get a reprint back in circulation. One childhood fan of the book, who lent his support to the campaign is BAFTA award-winning actor Reece Shearsmith, who provides a forward in the new issue and is the only additional text from the original.

You can read the full story about the resurrection of this classic here.

Page by page topics such as how to investigate ghosts are covered along with those familiar detailed animations that we know and love Usborne for.

Paranormal researcher David Goulden said: "Some grown-up ghost researchers could learn a lot from this book! A whole new generation are going to be engaged in the world of ghosts once again".
