This is the perfect book for my youngest daughter who is nine years old. It's a good length (86 pp) that she can read in one sitting and the writing is clear and compelling but more importantly, there's a ghost in it. And not only that, the ghost is a dog! For Elena, who is currently obsessed with The Ghost Whisperer and also with becoming a part time FBI agent, this book has everything. There's a slight air of mystery, a ghostly dog who leads the main character, Delsie, to saving an old, homeless man and a happy ending...mostly.
Share this with the nine year olds in your life!
