“A little ghost unapologetically makes the most of being different....Different never looked so appealing. ” - Kirkus Reviews

“A sweet story about outsider friendship that is just slightly scary in places.... it's hard not to be charmed by van Genechten's smiley, rosy-cheeked ghosts, who could give Casper a run for his money in the cuteness department” – Publisher’s Weekly

Ghost Gilbert is a very special ghost, ever since he was little. When he goes to Ghost school, he quickly makes a lot of new friends. Gilbert always cheerfully takes part in everything. But when the Principal wants him to call “Boooooooh” just like a real ghost, all Gilbert can do is whisper a soft “Bahoo”. Will Gilbert ever become a real ghost?

A warm picture book about a different and special ghost, about fitting in and being true to yourself.
