Reviews

"Yamasaki's cartoon illustrations have a palette full of dark blues and bright yellows, contrasting not only day and night but also the creepy ghost and the ingenious boy. Verdict: A fun, slightly spooky twist on the classic tale of a small child outwitting a villain"
- School Library Journal

"Hilarity ensues as the ghost scrambles to assemble the ingredients to make the perfect batch of 'boy dumplings'... [a] charming, whimsical fairy tale."
- Midwest Book Review

"This crowd-pleaser will make a delicious storytime alternative" -- ALA Booklist

"Children will delight in the ghost's gullibility.... Compestine's haunting tale is an entertaining, not-too-scary offering." -- Publisher's Weekly
