How does a kid feel when the electricity goes out in the middle of the night and he can't find anyone but his dog? That's what happens to the boy in Ghost's Hour, Spook's Hour by Eve Bunting. Donald Carrick's pictures are very realistic as boy and dog open a creaky bedroom door and look for his parents in an empty but still-warm bed. The clock strikes 12. "Ghost's hour, spook's hour, " he says. It's a perfect atmospheric story with a happy ending. Not in the Halloween collection, but good for this time of year!
