Move over, Christmas Carol—here’s a new holiday ghost story!
It's Christmas Eve, and Kaye’s family is on the way to her grandmother’s house in a swirling snowstorm. Suddenly the car hits a patch of ice. It slides across the road and skids into a snow-filled ditch! Through the car window, Kaye spots a light in the woods. Its glow leads her and her parents through the blizzard. They find a warm cabin and a kindly old woman named Elsa. And Kaye finds something else—a green ghost who needs her help!
Newbery Honor–winning author Marion Dane Bauer spins a third spooky tale to complement her previous stories, The Blue Ghost and The Red Ghost.

In December, 1938, Lillian looks through a shop window in town and falls in love with a green, velvet-lined cloak, a wholly inappropriate choice for a farmer’s daughter. Some 70 years later, Kaye and her parents are driving through the countryside to Gran’s house for Christmas when an accident forces them to seek shelter in a nearby house. That night, a mysterious girl in a green velvet cloak leads Kaye out of the house and into the woods. Called a companion novel to Bauer’s The Blue Ghost (2005) and The Red Ghost (2008), this is a completely separate story. It features appealing protagonists in two time periods and manages the alternating narratives with ease. Particularly helpful for readers new to chapter books, Ferguson’s drawings illustrate the tale with warmth and sensitivity. A good choice for young readers who enjoy the cozier sort of ghost story: not terrifying, but eerie, and with a happy ending. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
