One of School Library Journal's Best Picture Books of 2011

One of Horn Book's Best Picture Books of 2011

Ghost dogs and skeletons in a tall tale with a tender heart from the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of My Friend Rabbit. Gus doesn't feel like doing much after his dog Ella dies. He doesn't really even feel like dressing up for Halloween. But when Gus runs into a bunch of rowdy skeletons, it's Ella his very own Bone dog--who comes to his aid, and together they put those skeletons in their place.

A book about friendship, loss, and a delightfully spooky Halloween.
