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.

A note from the author, Andy Lee. This book was only ever meant to have one copy printed. I wrote it as a surprise for my sister and her husband to celebrate the 1st birthday of George (my nephew), but when I asked my mate to print me one copy he said, “This is good, can we print more?” So if you don’t think its good, take it up with my friend Horgs, not me! A quirky little read, just a bit of fun and I rather enjoyed it – Yvonne.
