The very friendly ghost Pete meets in the attic of his family's new house is more than willing to join him for a night of trick-or-treating.  And although Ghost is a terrible trick-or-treater, he turns out to be a terrific friend.  "A surefire holiday choice for emerging readers."--School Library Journal

Moving to a new house can be scary all by itself, especially for kids. In this quirky little story, Pete not only moves, but in the attic of his new home he also discovers a ghost. It's only scary until Pete realizes that Ghost is just as frightened as he is--and not so different after all: "Ghost flew out of the box. Ghost was not tall. Ghost was not wide. Ghost was just like Pete." Ghost, who had been living in a box in the attic for 100 years, comes out just in time for Halloween. While you might think that Halloween would be a snap for ghosts, this one just can't get it right. Pete takes Ghost trick-or-treating, but their outing ends in disaster--at every house Ghost ends up making a mistake that costs him a treat. "'I like your mask,' said Ghost. 'That is my face,' said the man." No candy for Ghost. With colorful illustrations and subtle messages about friendship and sharing, Ghost and Pete is a simple but sweet story for young readers. --Sara Nickerson

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?When Pete moves into his new house, he runs up to the attic and discovers Ghost, who has spent the last 100 years in a box. The two unlikely characters quickly become pals, don costumes, and go out for Halloween together. Ghost has never gone trick-or-treating before and proves to be rather inept at it. He does not get any candy. When they return home and settle down to go to bed, Pete gives Ghost his red lollipop and seals their friendship. Youngsters will enjoy the gentle humor in this Halloween story, particularly Ghost's literal interpretations of Pete's instructions. Novak's colorful cartoon illustrations add to the charm and overall appeal of the book. A surefire holiday choice for emerging readers.?Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
