Review: Pleasing the Ghost by Sharon Creech
Review: This is a strange, funny little story. Dennis can see ghosts - but never the ghost he most wants to see - his father. Instead, he gets his Uncle Arvie, a stroke victim who has Aphasia. Dennis must complete three "pleases" before Arvie will leave - and along the way, Dennis learns about friendship, family, love - and ghosts. While it does deal with the death of a loved one, it's subtle and not dark or sappy. In the end, the story was a bit odd, but I think kids will enjoy it. I did!
