I ordered a couple of books for our 2 1/2 year old recently; among them was The Goopy Ghost of Christmas. We read it for the first time this morning. As we were reading, my daughter did not say anything. I was not sure what she thought of her new book or if she even paid attention. When I finished she paused thoughtfully, tapped the book, and said, "Read that again, Mama!" After reading it a second time she said, "That was a nice Christmas book."

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!

"The Goopy Ghost at Christmas"
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.

V. R. Duin is an excellent author of Childrens Books. The Goopy Ghost Series of books are written in a way to keep children interested as well as to help teach them important life lessons. I personally know that these books are being used in schoolsand added to school libraries across the country. Besides writing excellent books, V. R. Duin donates a lot of time to children, making appearences at schools to read her books. She truly cares about the childrens education. I highly recommend these books to parents, grand parents, uncles and aunts.

This is the second Goopy Ghost book that I bought and it was just as cute as the first one. I think the grandchildren liked it even more or maybe it's because they were familiar with the character that made them enjoy it. We are hoping that the author will do more books with Goopy Ghost!

The goopy ghost is born of pie,
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.

Even though it is the middle of Summer and 90 degrees outside, we are reading the Goopy Christmas book. It is very colorful and very well written, and the children that I take care of love it. A great book to buy for young children.
