Gilly loves scaring, but has his scare tactics gone too far?
Scaring Trick-O-Treaters is a skill Gilly has mastered. He even scares his friends when it’s not Halloween, and sometimes that makes them sad.
One day, Gilly’s scaring becomes too much for Maddy Mummy, Wanda Witch, Skel’ton Steve, Franky Stein, and Zombie Zane, and they decided to confront Gilly about their concern.
Then suddenly, they all appeared and marched in his direction.
They looked upset, “But why?” he thought. There was a disconnection.
Gilly then got nervous as he squeaked a feeble “boo.”
Then Skel’ton Steve exclaimed, “We have a bone to pick with you!”
What do you think happens next?
Will this confrontation between friends leave Gilly a spooky wreck? Will he realize the errors in his ways and do better? Or will he ignore his friend’s plea and keep scaring like the ghoul he is?
Gilly Ghost Loves Scaring the Most teaches children the concept of boundaries, and how it’s important to establish and understand them. This book will be a wonderful addition to households and classrooms who are learning boundaries between friends and family.
Sometimes scaring is OK…and sometimes it’s not. Will Gilly learn the importance of boundaries with his friends?
What Readers think of this book:
“I LOVE the fun, punchy rhymes- it makes this a great read-aloud! This story is very relatable and has a great lesson (but it’s not overly in your face – my kids hate those books lol) — this is the perfect balance. These lines gave me goosebumps (pictured): “Gilly was relieved that they addressed their great concern. ‘Cause no one can do better if they never get to learn”. It’s a great reminder for kids (and grownups, too). I also LOVE that the author uses vocabulary that is a bit more challenging— it’s a great way for kids to learn new words!” ~ Katie Weaver- Author of When the Sky Roars
