Move over, Christmas Carol—here’s a new holiday ghost story!

It's Christmas Eve, and Kaye’s family is on the way to her grandmother’s house in a swirling snowstorm. Suddenly the car hits a patch of ice. It slides across the road and skids into a snow-filled ditch! Through the car window, Kaye spots a light in the woods. Its glow leads her and her parents through the blizzard. They find a warm cabin and a kindly old woman named Elsa. And Kaye finds something else—a green ghost who needs her help!

Newbery Honor–winning author Marion Dane Bauer spins a third spooky tale to complement her previous stories, The Blue Ghost and The Red Ghost.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4

In her third beginning-chapter-book ghost story, Bauer weaves a suspenseful holiday tale told in alternating voices. In 1938, a girl named Lillian dreams of a perfect Christmas tree and sacrifices herself to the cold to save her younger sister. Her ghost appears to a present-day youngster, Kaye, and leads her to a long-forgotten perfect Christmas tree (which still has the saw stuck in the trunk) and asks that she bring Lillian's younger sister, Elsa (who is now Kaye's grandmother's age), to see it. Elsa realizes that Kaye has seen her dead sister after the girl describes her beautiful green cloak-the very one that their father bought for Lillian to be buried in. Ferguson's atmospheric black-and-white illustrations appear throughout this sweet and tender offering.-Diane Olivo-Posner, Long Beach Public Library, CA
