And then he knows it's up to him to keep himself and his teeny tiny cats safe. But what are the chances that a teeny tiny timid ghost will really be able to scare someone away?

In case you weren't aware of it, being scary doesn't come naturally to every spirit and specter. Teeny tiny ghosts, especially, may find that they are haunting-impaired, due to their diminutive age and size. The Teeny Tiny Ghost is one such timid apparition, who attends Teeny Tiny School to learn about spooky stories, Halloween, and the basics of haunting. At his teeny tiny home, the Teeny Tiny Ghost tries to practice booing and whooing, howling and yeowling, but scares himself too much to continue. How will this fearful phantasm ever handle the unseen creatures with scary voices that come knocking at his door on Halloween night?
Kay Winters writes a story that is simple and sweet, and her use of repetition and rhyme will appeal to both readers and listeners. Illustrator Lynn Munsinger's drawings of the Teeny Tiny Ghost present an endearing spirit who falls somewhere between Casper (the friendly) and the angst-ridden woman in Edvard Munch's "The Scream." Younger children will love the Teeny Tiny Ghost's jaunty baseball cap and adorable teeny tiny cats, as well as his failed attempts at being frightful. Older, more spook-savvy kids will get a kick out of the irony of a scaredy-cat ghost. (Ages 3 to 8)About the Author:
