Kaz is a ghost. When his haunt is torn down, he and his family are separated. The wind blows him to a library. Here he meets a "solid" (a non-ghost person) named Claire. And a mystery of who or what the library ghost might really be!  A fun new mystery for ages 7 to 10.  And do not miss Book two: The Ghost in the Attic. — Jeanette


A brand-new young chapter book series from Edgar Award winner Dori Hillestad Butler!

When ghost boy Kaz’s haunt is torn down and he is separated from his ghost family, he meets a real girl named Claire, who lives above the town library with her parents and her grandmother. Claire has a special ability to see ghosts when other humans cannot and she and Kaz quickly form a friendship. The two join forces to solve the mystery of the ghost that’s haunting the library. Could it be one of Kaz’s lost family members?
