Synopsis

"Listen up!" said the teacher to the teeny tiny class. "The Spook and Spirit Club is sponsoring a contest for all the ghosts in our teeny tiny school. It's a Make a Monster contest -- just in time for Halloween!"

All the ghosts in the teeny tiny class are excited to make their own monsters: scary monsters, hairy monsters, boy- and girl-eating monsters! All the ghosts, that is, except one.

The Teeny Tiny Ghost isn't excited at all. The Teeny Tiny Ghost is scared. He doesn't like monsters: not scary monsters, not hairy monsters, not even boy- and girl-eating monsters. What will he do?

Find out in this sweet and spooky story from Kay Winters and Lynn Munsinger. You don't have to be a ghost to fall in love with the Teeny Tiny Ghost as he struggles with real-life problems like bullies and overwhelming school assignments. And you'll cheer for him as he comes out on top!
