Gracie hasn’t been able to see very well recently, so she decides to get some glasses. But, after playing on the mountain one day, she realizes that night that her glasses are missing. She heads straight out to look for them on the mountain–where a bored ghost is hiding in the darkness, waiting for someone to scare. Although Ghost tries to scare her, Gracie doesn't react by being frightened, not even little–because she can't see Ghost well enough to be scared without her glasses! Ghost really wants to see Gracie scared, so he helps in her search all night long and finally finds her glasses. But what happens when Gracie puts them on...

A cute, non-scary ghost story for kids. After spending the day in the mountains with her friends, Gracie realizes she lost her glasses. When she tries to go look for them, it's night and she can't see very well. With a little help from a ghost, who Gracie doesn't realize is a ghost, she finds her glasses. The simple illustrations, bright colors, and interesting story make this a book that is great for young kids. I love that Gracie has glasses. It's not too often a children's book features a character with glasses. Being someone who has glasses, I think Gracie will be a character that young kids will glasses will be able to easily identify with.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
