Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

There are ghosts in the cemetery near Malcolm David's house, and they're filling the air with their spooky OOOOOs and EEEEEs and ARRRRs. When Malcolm David dares to go looking for them late one night, he is surprised to discover that the eerie howling is actually coming from the ghosts? empty stomachs. They're not trying to scare anybody? they're just hungry, and they don't know what it is that ghosts are supposed to eat! <p>A satisfying read-aloud for Halloween or anytime, this book mixes playfulness and lyricism as only Newbery Honor'winning author Julius Lester could do it. His dynamic text is well matched by Geraldo Valério's glowing, happy artwork.<br> <br></p>
