Where the story ideas originate:
"When it is dark and quiet, in the middle of the night, my brain seems to stir up all sorts of things, including children's story plots and characters. I also try to stay alert to potential children's story material as I travel through my activities of daily living."

This is a fun book for Christmas with a fresh twist to it unlike any other. Santa is there, but so is Goopy who hitches a ride in Santa's sack. Who would have thought that pumpkin goop could scare Santa's elves? So funny and creative!
Babies and toddlers will be attracted to the colors and illustrations, as well as the rhyming in the story. My daughter and I look forward to the next adventure of this goopy, droopy ghost!
Goopy, the ghost that stole our hearts and Halloween treats is back! This time, he's getting into mischief on Christmas Eve. Author V.R. Duin brings everyone's favorite ghost to life again in "The Goopy Ghost at Christmas".
In typical Goopy style, he devours the candy canes that decorated the tree and eats the cookies that were left out for Santa. Then he uses his goo to stick decorations to the wall.
Tired from his Goopy activities, stuffed with goodies, he slips in Santa's sack to nap. Poor Goopy freezes while on the sleigh. Imagine the elves surprise when a Goopy ghost appears from the thawing pile of goop!
This new, fun filled tale is a must read bedtime story for Christmas Eve! I'm already looking forward to the next book. Can't wait to find out where a Goopy Ghost appears next.
A luscious way to start!
Good humored and so full of fun,
He demonstrates his heart.
Our friend the ghost is so surprised,
To find a tree inside;
He thinks the baubles on its limbs,
are "Food for me!" he sighed.
Content is he and explores some more;
And decorates a hall,
With candy canes, and ribbons bright,
And here and there a ball.
When Santa arrives, he hitches a ride
Deep within Santa's pack.
He awakes up North and meets some elves,
To help--if he has the knack.
But making toys is not his niche,
So he decorates instead.
He brightens the halls with toys 'n dolls,
And all things green and red.
When our goopy friend returns to his home,
A year's time has passed;
"As happy as a lark" to help some more,
Putting cheer in our hearts to last.
I know of children who will love this book,
And read it again and again;
They will love the colors and the cheerful tone,
And the message to help a friend.
My hat is off to V. R. Duin,
For such a gleeful read;
Let's look for ways to teach our kids,
to do a kindly deed.
You might want to plant some pumpkins seeds and put this story book on your list right away! The elves are already at work and it is best to be prepared. Let this book entertain and lead to great activities that Lily and her family share.
As with the other V.R. Duin books this will just add to the fun and excitement of looking forward to that special time, Christmas time. Be sure to look for other holiday books and enjoy each one.
Time goes by fast, but good memories of story times will stay within the hearts of your children forever!
