The Lovereading4Kids comment

A spine-tingling bedtime story that explores feelings of overcoming anxieties and feeling secure with a delightful hero who shows we can overcome our fears and fit in. Bertie is just a little ghost. He wants to be good at haunting, but he's scared of creepy forests and spooky castles. If only he could find somewhere more cosy ... then he would be ready to haunt the night away! If you're looking for a toe-tingling bedtime story, then Bertie is ready to share a shiver with you!

Synopsis

Ready Steady Ghost! by Elizabeth Baguley

'Shiver-me, shake-me!' said Bertie. The forest at midnight can be a scary place. Bertie has just set out on his first haunting. It's a journey that makes our little ghost feel jumpy: through a dark and lonely wood, past a howling wolf, a hissing snake, and a roaring dragon! So when he reaches a big old castle, Bertie doesn't really feel like haunting, he feels like hiding: especially when he's chased up the stairs by a dog. It's only when Bertie takes refuge in a draughty attic that he finds the perfect place to take up his position as resident ghost.
