Huser, Glen. The Elevator Ghost. Review.

Click here to buy The Elevator Ghost

This is a delightful little Halloween themed early chapter book. Several stories are enclosed within a story.

An eccentric woman, Carolina Giddle, moves into town. She is a combination of Mary Poppins and the Munsters. She quickly gains the reputation as a storyteller and competent babysitter of the most difficult children. She tells diverse stories to four different families, accompanied by odd but delicious treats and unusual paraphernalia. Each story is deliciously scary but also has a lesson the listener needs to learn.

This would be a terrific read aloud book, especially for October. The stories within a story will be satisfying on their own. The bits of humor scattered throughout prevent the book from becoming too dark. Still, it’s not for very sensitive or young children.
