What's scarier than a ghost story? Three ghost stories, of course. And these three stories, told to little ghosts at bedtime, are the scariest kind of ghost stories there are-they're about people! From a ghost who becomes the victim of a baby in need of a diaper to a hamburger that can win a scaring contest just by lifting its bun, these hilariously illustrated silly stories are sure to bring Halloween laughs to even the littlest ghosts.
When Franny and Frankie, a pair of ghosts, ask Father Ghost to tell them scary bedtime stories, the resulting tales will leave readers in stitches. Uncle Ned, unable to scare anyone, meets a fate worse than, er, death, when he's turned into a diaper. In another story, Cousin Nell proves less frightening than a hamburger, and the final tale's Big Bad Granny knows just how to torment little ghosts with kisses and hugs. Meisel's hapless, gap-toothed ghosts and LaRochelle's knack for pitch-perfect bedtime storytelling make these stories light on horror but heavy on laughs. Ages 6 8.
