Leo: a ghost story

LEO++front+cover+—Leo+page“This is Leo. Most people cannot see him. But you can.”

And then Leo appears. He’s a ghost in search of a friend. The new people who’ve moved into his home don’t get it. They seem bothered by the mint tea and honey toast floating through the air. They bring in people to get rid of Leo. Leo doesn’t want to stay where he’s unwanted, however, and he heads off to the city, a roaming ghost looking for a new home.

At first no one acknowledges him, but then he meets Jane, who plays Knights of the Round Table and thinks he’s imaginary. Still, she’s a friend, and the first night, he’s so happy he can’t sleep. And then he also just happens to foil a thief!

Mac Barnett is a favorite of mine – for Extra Yarn, Telephone, and The Terrible Two. Now I’ll be looking for more from Christian Robinson, too. (Josephine and Last Stop on Market Street are just wonderful.) And if they happen to make more books together – even better!
