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.

Ghosts are supposed to be sheets, light as air and able to whirl and twirl and float and soar. But the little ghost who is a quilt can’t whirl or twirl at all, and when he flies, he gets very hot.

He doesn’t know why he’s a quilt. His parents are both sheets, and so are all of his friends. (His great-grandmother was a lace curtain, but that doesn’t really help cheer him up.) He feels sad and left out when his friends are zooming around and he can’t keep up.

But one Halloween, everything changes. The little ghost who was a quilt has an experience that no other ghost could have, an experience that only happens because he’s a quilt…and he realizes that it’s OK to be different.

ACCEPTANCE THEME: Story shows that any shape or size is special.

ADORABLE CHARACTER: A cuddly quilt ghost in shades of blue will win over readers.

PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN: A classic Halloween story that can work all year round as well.

ADORABLE ILLUSTRATIONS: Byron Eggenschwiler is an up and coming illustrator who has created a gorgeous book with a delightful main character and appealing palette.

QUILT ENTHUSIASTS: Debut picture book author Riel Nason is a noted quilt maker.

RIEL NASON is a Canadian novelist and textile artist. Her acclaimed debut novel The Town That Drowned won the Commonwealth Book Prize for Canada and Europe, and the Margaret and John Savage First Book Award. Riel’s original quilts have been exhibited across Canada; she is best known for her whimsical selvage quilts and bold use of color, and she has published two books on the subject: Modern Selvage Quilting and Sew a Modern Halloween. Riel grew up in Hawkshaw, New Brunswick, and now lives in Quispamsis, NB, with her husband, son, daughter and cats.
