Bo is a little girl who loves to read stories before bedtime. One evening, as she is reading an especially funny tale about a witch with stinky feet, all the lights go out. Before she can recover, a clammy hand grabs one end of her book. She closes her eyes and holds on tight to the other end. Bo and her story book are whisked away to a strange place where she has never been before. When she opens her eyes, she finds herself standing in the Ghost Library, a gigantic, spooky room filled with empty shelves. It isn't long before she meets the friendly ghosts who regularly visit this place. They're constantly looking for more good stories--but their shelves are always empty. Bo is a little girl whose head is filled with ideas. She dreams up the perfect way to help the ghosts fill their library with wonderful stories. David Melling's funny, highly-detailed, full-color illustrations complement his amusing tale. They include a cleverly extended three-panel illustration with a gatefold and three two-page spreads that tell Bo's story in purely pictorial images.
