About the Book

What do you do when a ghostly elephant won’t leave you alone?

When a phantom elephant turns up uninvited and starts getting a little girl into trouble, she has no idea how to make him go away. But her grandmother happens to have a menagerie of phantom pets herself, so she knows just who to go to for help—the shopkeeper at Spectral & Son. He gives her a box. . . . Does it hold the solution?
