Publisher Comments:

Move over, Christmas Carol—here’s a new holiday ghost story!

It's Christmas Eve, and Kaye’s family is on the way to her grandmother’s house in a swirling snowstorm. Suddenly the car hits a patch of ice. It slides across the road and skids into a snow-filled ditch! Through the car window, Kaye spots a light in the woods. Its glow leads her and her parents through the blizzard. They find a warm cabin and a kindly old woman named Elsa. And Kaye finds something else—a green ghost who needs her help!

Newbery Honor–winning author Marion Dane Bauer spins a third spooky tale to complement her previous stories, The Blue Ghost and The Red Ghost.

Synopsis:

While Kaye and her parents are driving during a bad snowstorm to her grandmother's house on Christmas Eve, their car spins off the road and they take refuge in a house where Kaye meets a ghost in a green cloak. Reprint.
