This helpful guide will show you how to create a lifelong (and beyond) friendship with a ghost. Step one: Be a person who is sweet, warm and kind and a ghost may find you. Step two: If you chance to meet a ghost, do not run away. Simply smile, wave and tell the ghost your name. Step three: To nourish your friendship, try cooking floating spaghetti and mudballs together or going for a walk in the woods to collect leaves, acorns and worms. Be sure not to let your ghost help with the laundry or use your ghost as a tissue. Booger removal is never easy.

The humour in How To Make Friends with a Ghost is subtle, surprising, spectacular. The illustrations are amazing, astonishing, astounding! I’m an admirer of Rebecca Green’s work. She’s one of my favourite children’s book illustrators, and now one of my favourite children’s book authors. The foreshadowing moment at the very beginning of the story is a touch of perfection, as are the wonderful glimpses into the relationship and lives and afterlives of our two protagonists, girl and ghost.
