Description
When the sun begins to rise, it's time for Baby Ghostling to sleep.

Young children will delight in seeing their bedtime rituals turned upside down. With gentle humor and glowing illustrations in the hues of dawn, this is a lullaby that any child ghost or human will look forward to hearing before bed.
