The Ghost's Dinner by Jacques Duquennoy

This simple ghost story introduces various colors in a quietly humorous setting.

Henry's friends have all come to dinner in what appears to be an old castle. As he brings on course after course....they all change color, from orange with the pumpkin soup to holey yellow with the cheese. Finally, Henry brings out an amazing dessert with astonishing results.

Verdict: This is a good ghost story for Halloween, if you want to steer away from scarier tales, or for a storytime with colors. Sadly, it's out of print, but if you're in a library system with older libraries, you can probably find a copy on the shelf somewhere.

ISBN: 978-0307175106; Published July 1994 by Golden books (out of print); Borrowed from the library; Added to my personal wishlist
