The Midnight ShipBook - 2010
When her little sister has to share a bedroom with her, Sarah likes to describe their bunk beds as a ship sailing on an ocean full of sea-snakes and other scary creatures.
There's a little door in Grandpa's spare room. Mom's brother told her it was full of ghosts and vampires waiting to creep out when it got dark . . .
Simply written and set in the natural rhythms of speech, The Midnight Ship is suitable for reluctant as well as first readers. A scary story with a reassuring ending for 5- to 8-year-olds.
