This is my all-time favourite how-to guide, and it's full of important information about befriending the spectres you may encounter if, as the author notes, you are "sweet, warm, and kind." This book gives you Ghost Basics and Ghost Care—all the essentials. I recommend you buy this book and start your own ghost friend group.

What do you do when you meet a ghost? One: Provide the ghost with some of its favorite snacks, like mud tarts and earwax truffles. Two: Tell your ghost bedtime stories (ghosts love to be read to). Three: Make sure no one mistakes your ghost for whipped cream or a marshmallow when you aren't looking If you follow these few simple steps and the rest of the essential tips in How to Make Friends with a Ghost, you'll see how a ghost friend will lovingly grow up and grow old with you.

A whimsical story about ghost care, Rebecca Green's debut picture book is a perfect combination of offbeat humor, quirky and sweet illustrations, and the timeless theme of friendship.
