Whooo's Haunting the Teeny Tiny Ghost?
Kay Winters. HarperCollins Publishers, $14.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-06-027358-3
In this scary-silly sequel to The Teeny Tiny Ghost, the protagonist's newfound courage flags when transparent boots go ""stomp, stomp, stomping"" around his cobwebby mansion. ""Someone is haunting my teeny tiny house, but I'm the ghost!"" he protests as his two nervous cats cling to his taffy-stretchy body. With heart-pounding punctuation, Winters shows how the ghost unmasks the culprit: his older cousin, doing a homework assignment in haunting. Disarming watercolors evoke the mild-mannered hero's fear, resolve and, in a festive ending, his eventual triumph. A lesson in bravery, a spine-tingler and an all-out charmer, this is the treat of the Halloween season. Ages 3-8. (Aug.)
