Two very exciting things in this world are tiramisu and spiritual beings, and The Bake Shop Ghost has both. Annie Washington is our fearless heroine, challenged to a celestial bake-off in an attempt to appease a stubborn ghost. Marjorie Priceman's jaunty illustrations perfectly capture such lively yet haunting cities as New Orleans and Savannah. This is perfect for a story channeled from old folktales and a Charlie Daniels song. The author has updated the tale to give us not just a happy ending, but a sweet partnership between the living and the dead.
