Jinnie Ghost is as thin as the wind, with hair as white as the feathers of owls and eyes like water. Jinnie whispers dreams to children as they sleep: she brings Charlotte’s dolls to life, makes Amy’s carpet bubble with frogs and toads, and conjures up a giant to carry Joe off to a castle in the sky. But at the break of dawn, Jinnie hurries away, leaving only half-formed memories of her ghostly visit. Hauntingly illustrated, this perfectly pitched poem celebrates the power of the imagination, taking readers on a fantastic journey while sending a shiver down the spine.
