This book comes with a free ghost! But, like any pet, ghosts need special care and attention. A playful riff on "My First Pet" books, My First Ghost teaches kids everything they need to know about taking care of their very own ghost. Debut picture book authors Miller and Leviton offer humorous tips on feeding, grooming, and ghostly games which are complemented by charming illustrations with a retro twist.
