Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Overall, a decent book. There are four ghosts; three who can fly and one who is young and hasn't learned to fly yet. The story is straightforward and simple; the Little Ghost wants to fly, but no one has time to teach him, then he gets sad, then the other ghosts scare him and he jumps into the air and realizes he can fly.

The watercolor is interesting; it is hard to tell if the house they haunt is abandoned or just has some eclectic items in the attic.

More problematic is the ghost theme. Is the toy car on the stairs something that the Little Ghost used to play with when he was, um, you know...alive? If you aren't ready to talk about the afterlife with the young ones, maybe try a different book.
