Bo is a little girl who loves to read stories before bedtime. One evening, as she is reading an especially funny tale about a witch with stinky feet, all the lights go out. Before she can recover, a clammy hand grabs one end of her book. She closes her eyes and holds on tight to the other end. Bo and her story book are whisked away to a strange place where she has never been before. When she opens her eyes, she finds herself standing in the Ghost Library, a gigantic, spooky room filled with empty shelves. It isn’t long before she meets the friendly ghosts who regularly visit this place. They’re constantly looking for more good stories but their shelves are always empty. Bo is a little girl whose head is filled with ideas. She dreams up the perfect way to help the ghosts fill their library with wonderful stories. David Melling’s funny, highly-detailed, full-color illustrations complement his amusing tale. They include a cleverly extended three-panel illustration with a gatefold and three two-page spreads that tell Bo’s story in purely pictorial images.
