Kirby's Dilemma What's more thrilling, to a young reader than a lonely graveyard with a hovering ghost? And that's just the cover illustration. And when the ghost is a friendly boy your own age who lives in your basement, well, that's an adventure waiting to start: Kirby the ghost wants to connect with his mother's spirit; new friend Michael wants to help. The author has a real instinct for unlocking the preteen mind, and the everyday details of family, school and friends carry the story along so believably that it's very easy to welcome Kirby into the mix.

Kirby's Dilemma Kids love ghost stories, and this is age-appropriate and enjoyable. It's readable but holds the reader's interest. Join insecure Michael's world as he dares to work with a girl in his class. They join forces to help their ghost friend, Kirby solve his dilemma. It's a sweet, engaging book, even for adults.
