JUVENILE FICTION / Social Themes / Friendship
Friendship comes in the most unlikely of places when a lonely ghost meets a buoyant new companion.

“Above a noisy family,
On a crowded street,
In the big city,
In a dark lonely attic,
Lived Ghost.”

For Ghost, it can be pretty hard to make new friends. Some people are frightened, others don’t understand, most don’t seem to realize Ghost is even there.
 
One day when a bright red balloon wanders Ghost’s way, the connection is instantaneous. Together they do everything Ghost had ever hoped to share with a friend, but balloons rarely stick around for long.  That’s when Ghost learns that when you’re looking for a friend, a friend might find you.
 
With A Friend for Ghost Suzanne Kaufman, New York Times Bestselling illustrator of All Are Welcome, brings her talents to bear in an utterly charming tale about friendships and the wish to find them.
 



UNCONVENTIONAL AND CHARMING FRIENDSHIPS: Balloons don’t make the most likely companions, but it’s hard not to smile seeing one on a see-saw with Ghost.

NOTABLE AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Suzanne Kaufman is the illustrator of the New York Times Bestseller All Are Welcome (Knopf, 2018), by Alexandra Penfold.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TROUBLE MAKING FRIENDS: It can be hard to make new friends, A Friend for Ghost offers gentle encouragement to kids who have the patience to try.

“[A] lovely title…. The emotional journey of Ghost is captured through expressive illustrations of Ghost and Ghost’s surroundings. Ghost does not have a personal pronoun which creates a wonderful opening for classroom or story-hour discussion…. Recommended for libraries looking for sweet ghost stories as well as titles on friendship and the challenges of making friends”—School Library Journal

“[This] tale offers plenty of opportunities to spark discussions about friendship and compatibility…. Children will enjoy seeing ghosts behaving as nonthreatening, fun-seeking, and peoplelike.”—Kirkus Reviews
