    1 thought on “The Green Ghost”

    1. Just like the story The Blue Ghost, which was also written by Marion Dane Bauer, this story also centers on the connection and love between a family. These ghost stories are not really intended to scare the readers. Instead, these books teaches young readers, as well as adults, that there are unexplained things we cannot fully comprehend like the concept of ghosts and spirits. But we should take account that these entities want to convey something that's why they make their presence felt.

    2. I would have enjoyed it more when I was little. It reminded me of a much better written "Are you afraid of the dark?" episode. Pleasantly spooky and wonderfully written.

    3. This is one of the sweetest stories!When we knew the 5 and 7-year-old would be out for Winter Break for 3 weeks, we headed straight to the Metropolitan Library!  Loading up on books for everyone as well as the neat little personal video pre-loaded stories. Younger children can watch the Magic School Bus episodes and much more. This is a great beginning chapter book for readers. Miss Charli Ava had no problem reading it. There was action, adventure, ghosts and blizzards, who wouldn't love it? A [...]

    4. I'm not sure how we discovered this book, but it was a very powerful story and one that triggers very strong emotions. The Christmas theme brings feelings of happiness and celebration, but Lillian's story is so sad. The disparity of the emotions takes the reader on a roller coaster ride. We started this book late in our storytime and I expected to only read a chapter or two, but we were so drawn into the story, we just had to know what happened in the end. I read the last chapter with tears stre [...]

    5. Two voices from two different times tell a beautiful ghost story. Lillian grows tired of the stunted, scraggly Christmas trees her father cuts down behind the family's barn each year. This year, she convinces her parents that she's old enough to find the perfect tree. When Lillian heads into the forest with her ax, her sister, Elsa, begs to go with her. The search takes longer than Lillian expected, and the girls are caught by the darkness and the cold. They shelter under the perfect tree hoping [...]

    6. The main characters in this book is Kayne,Elsa, and Elsa's sister Lillian. Kayne is a kind soft hearted girl who's on her way to her grand mothers place to celebrate christmas. Elsa is a girl who has a beautiful heart too. Lillian is also a girl who is picky. The book switches the story back and forth. The story tells about Lillian going to find a beautiful tree for christmas but something tragic happens. Kayne meets Lillian later in the future. Over all i think this book is a good book to read [...]

    7. This received five stars because I read it out loud to Sam and when we read the last sentence, he said, "That was amazing." Sam is seven and loves good ghost stories and this is an excellent one. We'll read more in this series.

    8. A ghost story told in two voices, Lillian in 1938 and Kaye in present day Christmas. This is a good choice for young readers who want a short, fast-paced story that is only a little spooky and not sad.

    9. I seldom cry over books, but this one had me close to tears. The writing is simple and direct. The title clearly states there is a green ghost in the story, but somehow it caught me unaware. It is sad and happy at the same time.

    10. A nice, heartwarming, yet chilling Christmas tale. A perfect book for readers moving from easy readers to chapter books or from simple chapter books to ones with a bit more depth.

    11. A good Christmas ghost story for 2nd to 3rd graders. Marion Dane Bauer is my go to author for this age group.

    12. A family is out looking for a Christmas tree when their car slides off the road after hitting a ice patch. Well written,sad but good story.

    13. Recommended to me by a 4th grader. It does touch upon serious topics but there is no real lesson in this book.
