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
