Is there a Ghost in the House?

Ghost stories are some of my favorites. Ghosts aren't always bad. Sometimes they just want something: to rest or to tell their story. One good ghost novel I read recently is Ghost for Rent by Penny Lockwood Ehrenkranz. The story is written for middle-grade readers and has a haunted house, ghostly figures that dance in the woods, and other weird happenings. Don't you just love haunted houses? I do. Anyway, this is the perfect time of year to share your ghost stories with others, in a dark room, sitting in front of the fireplace, orange and red flames crackling, and the wind whistling outside the windows.


  1. Sounds like a perfect read for October.

  2. Hi Beverly:

    Sounds like Penny wrote a wonderful book. I always like ghost stories, especially when no one else is home.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Tara and Donna. Ghost stories are some of my favorites too, and I thought this was a good time to reread some of them. More to come, along with vampires and other creatures of the night. :-)


  4. Hi Bev, thanks for your support of my ghost story. I agree, this is a great time to read and re-read those spooky tales.

  5. It's a great story, Penny, and I'm happy to share it with others. Love this season. And ghost stories. :)
