Henry the Ghost hosts a dinner party at which the ghost guests turn the colors of the foods they eat.

PreSchool-Grade 1?Henry the ghost has invited his friends to a dinner party. Since he and his phantom guests are rather pale and diaphanous, they take on the tint of what they are eating and drinking. For example, pumpkin soup turns everyone various shades of tan and orange, salmon makes them pink, and cheese turns them yellow with holes. The secret dessert causes them to disappear altogether, and they reappear by drinking milk. The full-and double-page watercolor-and-ink illustrations appear against black backgrounds. The spare text flows well, but the visual humor is what makes the story succeed. First graders will delight in being able to read this themselves as they watch the changes in the ghosts. Not a required purchase, but an appealing one.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS

Henry the ghost shows his true colors when he whips up dinner for his friends. As the guests munch on each subsequent course, they turn the same color as the food they are eating. But, spooning up a "magic" dessert, the ghosts disappear altogether. Chef Henry saves the day however by serving some after-dinner milk and putting everyone back to their original shade of white. Duquennoy's slight picture book will amuse children who are just discovering colors, while its sense of whimsy holds appeal for a broad range of readers. Ages 4-7.
