The Shadow and the Ghost

We rated this book:


Shinbi is a ghost who is not very interested in haunting. She would much rather sit upon the perfect rock and stargaze. During the daytime, the ideal rock casts a shadow. His name is Greem. Though he enjoys the meadow the rock sits in, he would really like a friend. Greem leaves a simple note on the rock, hoping someone will see it. Shinbi responds to the note, and though the two live in two different worlds of night and day, they form a friendship.

The Shadow and the Ghost is a beautifully crafted children’s book written and illustrated by Cat Min. The story is touching about finding friendship in a world that is not yours. Min also highlights the value of creativity and finding oneself above social expectations. The text is simple for early readers but entertaining enough for story time. Min’s artwork is incredible. The full-page pictures range from bright and vivid daytime scenes to the stars and constellations of night.

Whether reading alone or with someone, The Shadow and the Ghost is a great story for bedtime or in the middle of the day.
