The Green Ghost by Marion Dane Bauer

The Green Ghost

A Newbery Honor-Winning Author

It’s Christmas Eve, and Kaye’s family is on the way to her grandmother’s house in a swirling snowstorm. Suddenly the car hits a patch of ice. It slides across the road and skids into a snow-filled ditch! Through the car window, Kaye spots a light in the woods. Its glow leads her and her parents through the blizzard. They find a warm cabin and a kindly old woman named Elsa. And Kaye finds something else—a green ghost who needs her help!

Newbery Honor–winning author Marion Dane Bauer spins a third spooky tale to complement her previous stories, The Blue Ghost and The Red Ghost.

This is one of the sweetest stories!

When we knew the 5 and 7-year-old would be out for Winter Break for 3 weeks, we headed straight to the Metropolitan Library!  Loading up on books for everyone as well as the neat little personal video pre-loaded stories. Younger children can watch the Magic School Bus episodes and much more.

This is a great beginning chapter book for readers. Miss Charli Ava had no problem reading it. There was action, adventure, ghosts and blizzards, who wouldn’t love it? And how did I choose such a gem? It was sitting beside the 5 American Girl books I checked out.

This one though, started a conversation about life, death, ghosts and long ago times and words. The kids asked me to read it over and over! And now that we know there are more, I’m sure PaPa will swing by and get those too!

Thank you Ms. Bauer for this Christmas Joy!
