Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–Nine-year-old Liz is helping her grandmother prepare to sell the old family cabin. She is awakened at night by a strange blue light and a voice calling her name. In the corner of her room, a ghostly woman dressed in old-fashioned clothes beckons to her and then disappears through the wall. Later, Liz hears voices and a baby's cry coming from behind the spot where the blue ghost vanished. She follows the sound and finds herself in the same cabin but long ago when it was first built. There, three little boys and a tiny baby are all in the care of a girl not much older than Liz herself. When the girl calls her a guardian angel, Liz knows that she has been summoned to the past because the children and the blue ghost need her help. This skillfully written short chapter book moves smoothly between the present and past. There is a strong emphasis on family heritage and intergenerational relations. Gran's stories about their family history provide the clues that Liz needs to answer the ghost's plea. Expressive black-and-white pictures heighten the suspense. Transition readers attracted by the wonderfully spooky cover art will find this a satisfying read.–Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. While staying with her grandmother in Gran's childhood home, Liz wakes one night when she hears her name--and sees a mysterious blue light that coalesces into the image of a woman in old-fashioned dress. Perhaps it's a dream, but then there are the faint voices that seem to come from the walls, which Liz can step through to go back in time. On the other side of the walls, she meets a family of children, including Elizabeth, who calls Liz "guardian angel." It's a puzzle, until Liz is summoned through the wall one night, and finds the children in need of help. This gentle ghost story, written in simple prose, blends mild suspense with a look at how the past connects to and influences the present. Mystery fans will enjoy the spooky premise, and Wang's softly rendered black-and-white drawings increase the ghostly atmosphere. Shelle Rosenfeld
