Summary

Summary

Mr. Brown and his clever cat, Cobweb, are back for a new adventure in their haunted bookstore. When a burglar who does not believe in ghosts tries to steal from Mr. Brown, it's up to Cobweb and her ghostly friends to convince him otherwise. Beginning readers will love the charming illustrations and easy-to-read, humorous text in a sequel that gives the youngest fans of "ghost" stories another big reason to cheer.

Booklist Review

Gr. K-1. In this very simple chapter book, there are just a few lines of text on each page, but, as in The Bookstore Ghost (1998), new readers will pay attention because they are in on the joke of the "haunted" bookstore. The cat, Cobweb, is the watchful sleuth who spots the burglar, and Westcott's big, slapstick pictures show that the "ghosts" who push the books off the shelf and scare the thief away are really Cobweb's good friends, the mice. Of course, the bookstore owner is very grateful to all of them. The burglar is garishly sinister, and kids will appreciate the sly trick that sends him running. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-In this sequel to The Bookstore Ghost (Dutton, 1998), Mr. Brown's clever cat, Cobweb, witnesses an unsavory character stealing the keys to his owner's shop. To foil the thief's plans, the feline must enlist the help of the bookstore ghosts (hint: think mice) to haunt away the burglar when he returns at night. Beginning chapter-book readers will delight in knowing what the ghosts really are and in Westcott's colorful illustrations. The humorous depictions accurately reflect the silliness of the text and contain just the right number of details.-Louie Lahana, New York City Public Schools (c) Copyright 2010.
