One Christmas Eve, the ten timid ghosts discover Christmas decorations up in the attic. They find a tree, decorate it, and put up lights outside. Will Christmas come? Join the ghosts as they hear, see, smell and feel strange things in the air that night. Is someone coming? Is that a sleigh in the sky? Count from one to ten with the ghosts as they experience the magical spirit of Christmas!

Reviews and Comments

book02c“The holidays are over, but Ten Timid Ghosts on a Christmas Night is still the book that Matthew picked out a few nights ago for a bedtime read.
...The illustrations are charming, and the ghosts appear, starting with “one timid ghost...” and moving up to “ten timid ghosts.” My little one loves to count the ghosts on each page, and loves it when one or more is hiding in an unusual or hard-to-find place. We highly recommend this one.”
