Early Reader Bedtime Story: The Bookstore Ghost by Barbara Maitland and Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott

Read for Children's Books/ Bedtime Story/ Borrowed Books

Synopsis: "Mr. Brown sells ghost books in his bookstore. But mice are scaring away the customers! Mr. Brown tells his cat to catch the mice, but she has other plans. After all, a ghost bookstore should be scary. Of course, it will be even more scary when it has its own ghost . . ."

My Review: This is a cute little book, perfect for Halloween but not too spooky for young readers. It is a simple story with lots of repetition and easy words for those young readers just starting to read on their own. I like the way the characters all find a way to work together so everyone is happy. It was fun, it was silly and it was a great book for October reading.

My Rating: This was a great book, not too scary but just a touch of spooky for the season.  I give it a rating of Three Paws!

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
