Have you ever had the feeling a doll was watching you?

Jenna finds the perfect gift for her sister at a neighbor’s garage sale—a beautiful old doll dressed all in red velvet. Jenna can’t believe her luck. Not only does Mrs. Tate seem happy to be rid of the doll, she even gives it to Jenna for free! But when Jenna takes the doll home, trouble begins. First her best friend gets a creepy feeling whenever she’s around it. Then the family cat hisses at the doll, and at night, Jenna thinks she can hear it moving around in her closet. Finally, when Jenna gives the doll to her sister, she won’t take it. Could the red velvet doll be haunted? And if it is, what can Jenna do?

In this companion book to The Blue Ghost, Newbery Honor winner Marion Dane Bauer masterfully tells a doll story full of suspense and shivers.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Booklist:

Bauer continues the theme she began with The Blue Ghost (2005). Here the ghostly aspects issue from a doll dressed all in red velvet. Jenna finds the doll at a neighbor’s garage sale, and is certain it will be a perfect gift for her little sister. But the doll gives off what can only be described as bad vibes. No one wants her, not Jenna’s sister, not the neighbor, not even Jenna. But there’s a mystery surrounding the doll. It once belonged to Miss Tate’s sister, who died as a child. When Jenna learns that Miss Tate’s mother poured all her sadness and love into the doll, a clue to the doll’s vibrations emerges. A spooky cover will draw kids, and once between the covers, they’ll find a clever ghost story that will engage readers, especially new ones, who’ll push their personal envelopes to find out what happens next. Pencil illustrations nicely break up the text. Grades 2-4. --Ilene Cooper
