Gilbert the little ghost wants to learn to haunt like the big ghosts, but lots of creatures are bigger than him. Will he succeed?
The story is simple and easy to follow. The illustrations are fun and colorful as well as eye-catching. In addition, the illustrations complement the rhyming text and help kids to preemptively guess what the ghost is trying to scare. This fun read aloud for parents and young children will make a great addition to any library collection. PreK, EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
