"Bickell and McGrath have created an endearing read-aloud that hits all the right notes, with clever rhyming text that invites audience participation."--School Library Journal
"In time for Halloween, a BOO-k about a ghost that young readers will enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews
"With effectively repetitious, lilting verse, Bickell underscores the ghost’s hopefulness and determination before entreating readers’ help to bring this gentle friendship story to an uplifting close. McGrath humorously portrays Little Ghost as a round creature with large, expressive eyes, whose simplicity offers a striking contrast to the detailed depictions of her intricately patterned animal pals." --Publishers Weekly
