Description
“A fearful ghost, a take-charge girl, an interracial friendship, and a tale in which fear is . . . sweetly tied to positive qualities of imagination.” —The New York Times
 
You would like being friends with Leo. He likes to draw, he makes delicious snacks, and most people can't even see him. Because Leo is also a ghost. When a new family moves into his home and Leo's efforts to welcome them are misunderstood, Leo decides it is time to leave and see the world. That is how he meets Jane, a kid with a tremendous imagination and an open position for a worthy knight. That is how Leo and Jane become friends. And that is when their adventures begin. This charming tale of friendship—from two of the best young minds in picture books: the author of the Caldecott Honor–winning Extra Yarn and the illustrator of the Bologna Ragazzi Award–winning Josephine—is destined to become a modern classic that will delight readers for years to come.
 
“Enchanting.” —The Washington Post
 
“A whimsical tale from Barnett aptly accompanied by enthralling artwork by Robinson.” —School Library Journal, starred review
 
“A tender, touching story of friendship and the power of imagination.” —Booklist, starred review
 
“Warm and wise.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“This deceptively simple story examines deep themes of perception and truth, friendship and loyalty.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review
 
“A pleasure to read aloud.” —Wall Street Journal
 
“There is nothing spooky about this moving story of friendship, acceptance, and belonging.” —Boston Globe
