Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This is ghostly trick or treat fun for tiny tots. The tiny ghost discovers that haunting is very hard, especially for a ghost who is scared. The secrets of his heritage seem out of his grasp until one Halloween night when he is motivated to be a protector of his cats and his home. The pictures of the tiny ghost trying out his scary voice, frightening himself and then puffing himself up to look scary are a hoot. Audience participation for sound effects makes this a crowd pleaser. 1998 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 This book opens with the diminutive apparition introduced in The Teeny Tiny Ghost HarperCollins, 1997 at recess gathering his courage to climb the "slippery silver slide." When he makes it successfully up and zooms to the bottom, the little ghost realizes that, "Being brave just takes practice." He then puts his bravery to the test when he encounters spooky happenings at home. With his black cats in tow, the tiny ghost uncovers the fact that his cousin has been targeting him as part of his "hide and haunt" homework. Fans of the first book will enjoy this gently scary offering that features the same Goreyesque artwork and rhythmic text. Ghostly holiday fare for the teeny-tiny set.

Kirkus Reviews
The timorous specter from this team's The Teeny Tiny Ghost (1998) reappears for a thrilling, hair-raising adventure. Woefully faint-hearted, the teeny tiny ghost knows he must practice being brave and in the school yard he valiantly faces the intimidating playground slide. However, when he returns home to discover empty rocking chairs moving on their own, mysteriously billowing draperies, and rattling chains, the apprehensive apparition's courage is tested. Winters's suspenseful story lends itself to a rousing recital at story hours; the steadily building tension as the diminutive spirit searches the house will generate delightful shivers, while the prosaic climax, in which it is revealed that Cousin Brad is completing his "hide and haunt" homework, prevents the tale from becoming too frightening for a younger audience. Munsinger's merry illustrations, overflowing with many humorous touches, contribute to this gleefully boisterous tale. (Picture book. 3-8) .
