Kindergarten-Grade 3. After the sheriff and his posse leave Cactus Junction to search for some bank robbers, lasso-toting Sarah (a little girl) and Billy (a ghost) discover they have work to do. The thieves are still in town and disguised as women. Young readers will enjoy Sarah and Billy's humorous misadventures with the crooks. Eventually, Sarah's planning and Billy's practical jokes (and invisibility) work for them; they deliver "Mabel" and "Doris" to the sheriff tied-up in a most unusual manner. The facial expressions, funny caricatures, and Old West setting enhance this fun-filled story. A great book combination includes reading aloud Diane Stanley's Saving Sweetness (Putnam, 1996) to aspiring young cowpokes and having them read Billy the Ghost and Me.?Gale W.
