Author Ruth Brown

A delightful picture book. Ms. Brown has been inspired by the old English architecture and countryside and weaves wonderful details of them into this unusual book. A mild yet effective story of a wispy white dog, whom we see exploring around a manor house one night. Other animals are frightened when he comes near. At the end of the story the dog wanders into the church and jumps up onto the tomb of his master where the dog transforms back into stone - alas he is a ghost! Truly charming, and not scary. It is nice to see something unique and creative like this.

Beautiful presentation of subject matter. Most of us remember absolutely loving mild ghost tales when we were small fry! My little Caroline picked this book out herself from the public library (she was about three at the time). I was a little unsure, but looked the book over, and finding nothing too questionable we checked it out and read it together. We both delighted in the wonderful atmosphere of the book. The illustrations are lovely and evocative. It has since become an all time favorite. It is a supernatural delight, perfect for a Halloween evening read.
