When you're a Quilt instead of a sheet, being a Ghost is hard! 
An adorable picture book for fans of Stumpkin and How to Make Friends With A Ghost!

Our Thoughts:

    Once, there was a little ghost who was a quilt instead of a sheet. Because of his thick layers, he couldn't fly as fast or as freely as the ghosts in his family that were sheets, but the little ghost that was a quilt still wanted to see the world and join in, so he did! 

The Little Ghost That Was A Quilt is an adorable story about a ghost that doesn't quite fit in. He is saddened by his differences but still yearns to experience the world, especially as Halloween, his favorite holiday, nears! The little ghost's adventures don't always go as planned, but he finds joy in them nevertheless, making this a hopeful story perfect for the autumn season.

I think this heartwarming little story will stick with me for some time. The story has such a cute message to it and a happy ending!

I adored the traditional-style illustrations. They have a slightly gloomy look that the bright patchwork ghost that was a quilt stood out on quite well and I especially loved all of the detail in settings, from the unique wood grain to the spooky shadows and spiderwebs!

I grew up with a lot of Halloween picture books that I adored and this one gave me a little bit of nostalgia for those old obscure stories! This is one I will definitely be adding to our shelves!
