Leo: A Ghost Story
by Mac Barnett
illustration by Christian Robinson
Even a ghost can get lonely. When Leo is rejected by the family that moves into his house, he leaves, sad and unseen. Until a little girl does see him and shows the way by sharing her own imaginings. Barnett's text captures the give-and-take essence of real friendship, and Christian Robinson's cut-paper illustrations and simple color palette enhance the otherworldly atmosphere.
