Do you think humans and ghosts cannot be friends? Incorrect! In Green’s enchanting debut picture book, you will find out how you can make a truly lifelong (and beyond) friend. You will find tips on how to feed, clean, tuck into bed and everything else you’ll ever need to know to care for your ghost friend. Recommended for a slightly older child reader, or as a gift to an adult (or ghost) friend. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
