Horn Book Review

In City, a trip to the overwhelming city makes Logan appreciate idyllic rural life (though seeing a horseless carriage is exciting). In Ghost, Logan builds a ghost trap, although the "ghost" turns out to be a neighbor's missing cat. Like the earlier installments, these gentle, old-fashioned family stories wrap up too pristinely, but large print, short chapters, and pen-and-ink drawings increase appeal.
