The Amber Catby Hilary McKay, Gail Piazza
Fun from the beginning, this book is a winning companion to "Dog Friday." While 11-year-old Robin and his best friend are suffering through the chicken pox together, Robin's mother tells them of an extraordinary experience she had back when she was 11. She and her friends played on the beach all summer with Harriet, a mysterious girl--who turned out to be a ghost.
