About This Book
"Listen up!" said the teacher to the teeny tiny class. "The Spook and Spirit Club is sponsoring a contest for all the ghosts in our teeny tiny school. It's a Make a Monster contest — just in time for Halloween!" All the ghosts in the teeny tiny class are excited to make their own monsters: scary monsters, hairy monsters, boy- and girl-eating monsters! All the ghosts, that is, except one.
The Teeny Tiny Ghost isn't excited at all. The Teeny Tiny Ghost is scared. He doesn't like monsters: not scary monsters, not hairy monsters, not even boy- and girl-eating monsters. What will he do? At the end of the school day, he has not come up with any inspiration for his picture. On the way home, he flies over a dump filled with raggy, saggy sofas and wires, springs, clocks, and wheels. He gathers together a box of assorted junk and goes home. That evening, he constructs his monster.
Find out in this sweet and spooky story from Kay Winters and Lynn Munsinger. You don't have to be a ghost to fall in love with the Teeny Tiny Ghost as he struggles with real-life problems like bullies and overwhelming school assignments. And you'll cheer for him as he comes out on top!
