Leo: A Ghost Story
by Mac Barnett, illus. by Christian Robinson
No, this isn’t the ghost of Christmas past, but rather, a friendly ghost (think Casper) who haunts a house until the family who moves in declares that they are absolutely terrified of ghosts. Leo isn’t out to scare anybody! He must find a new home, and when he does, he saves the day, too. Robinson’s illustrations are reason alone to buy this book. Truly, a magnificent foray into friendship, imagination, and succeeds as a picture book that has an intriguing plot.
