Booklist Review

Ages 3^-6. The timid ghost who overcame his fears in The Teeny Tiny Ghost (1997) has his bravery tested again in this sequel. Arriving home from Teeny Tiny School one day, he sees his door open. Inside he hears chains clinking, chairs rocking, and stomping on the stairs. "Someone is haunting my teeny tiny house, but I'm the ghost!" he wails. Summoning all his courage, he bravely confronts the haunter, who turns out to be his cousin Brad practicing his haunting techniques. Feeling very confident now, the teeny tiny ghost has a great time with his cousin, dancing the spook-and-spin, sliding down railings, and telling jokes. As in the first book, Munsinger does a nice job of setting the mood with watercolor predominately executed in grayed blues and violets and accented with scratchy pen-and-ink lines. Both art and text convey a feeling of spookiness without being overtly scary. A nice holiday alternative for younger, more sensitive children. --Lauren Peterson


Publisher's Weekly Review

In this scary-silly sequel to The Teeny Tiny Ghost, the protagonist's newfound courage flags when transparent boots go "stomp, stomp, stomping" around his cobwebby mansion. "Someone is haunting my teeny tiny house, but I'm the ghost!" he protests as his two nervous cats cling to his taffy-stretchy body. With heart-pounding punctuation, Winters shows how the ghost unmasks the culprit: his older cousin, doing a homework assignment in haunting. Disarming watercolors evoke the mild-mannered hero's fear, resolve and, in a festive ending, his eventual triumph. A lesson in bravery, a spine-tingler and an all-out charmer, this is the treat of the Halloween season. Ages 3-8. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2 This book opens with the diminutive apparition introduced in The Teeny Tiny Ghost (HarperCollins, 1997) at recess gathering his courage to climb the "slippery silver slide." When he makes it successfully up and zooms to the bottom, the little ghost realizes that, "Being brave just takes practice." He then puts his bravery to the test when he encounters spooky happenings at home. With his black cats in tow, the tiny ghost uncovers the fact that his cousin has been targeting him as part of his "hide and haunt" homework. Fans of the first book will enjoy this gently scary offering that features the same Goreyesque artwork and rhythmic text. Ghostly holiday fare for the teeny-tiny set.
