The world is often a scary place when you’re small, and many children might be relieved to discover that this is even true if you happen to be a ghost. Little Bertie wants to be good at haunting, but finds dark forests and tall castles just too overwhelmingly large and full of Frightening Things for a ghoul of his limited dimensions and nervous disposition. It’s a question of perspective, of course, so when Bertie is invited by the resident royals to haunt a toy castle, everyone is satisfied. Elizabeth Baguley’s bouncy prose and Marion Linsday’s just-spooky enough illustrations combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable story to share time and time again.
