When the sun begins to rise, it’s time for Baby Ghostling to sleep. But sleeping is hard when your head is filled with scary thoughts of human children! All of the elements of a classic good-night story are turned on their heads as Mama comforts her ghostling with thoughts of owls and bats and monsters. 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.
