About the Book: 

A little girl is the main character in this book and the plot is simple. She has heard her house is haunted, but as hard as she looks, she can’t find a ghost. Her hope is that perhaps the reader can help her find a ghost, but you have to flip through the pages to find out.

A perfect book for Halloween.
