Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The short, graphic-heavy text and broad humor will appeal to middle grade readers."—School Library Journal 

"The laughter continues in this second installment of the Klises' series about a ghost and her friends. As in the first book, Dying to Meet You, the entire story is told through letters, newspaper articles and the like and is adorned with M. Sarah Klise's amusing line drawings. . . . [A] light, diverting romp."—Kirkus Reviews

The laughter continues in this second installment of the Klises' series about a ghost and her friends. As in the first book, Dying to Meet You (2009), the entire story is told through letters, newspaper articles and the like and is adorned with M. Sarah Klise's amusing line drawings. Dramatic tension builds when elderly writer I.B. Grumply and his charge, the abandoned boy Seymour, are carted off to an insane asylum and an orphanage, respectively. Ghost-in-Residence Olive breaks them out and does her best to see that all villains get what they deserve. A dreaded government agent tries not only to break up the happy partnership but to outlaw Halloween. Worse, he turns the town against the trio, endangering their livelihood-publishing a serialized illustrated mystery. Much of the town of Ghastly, Ill., gets involved in the excitement, with characters sporting names appropriate to their callings, such as the locksmith, Ike N. Openitt. Even the addresses on the letters add to the comedy of this light, diverting romp. (Fantasy. 8-12)
