The Ghost-Eye Tree

written by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault, illustrated by Ted Rand

A boy and his sister must pass some scary places on their way to town to get a bucket of milk.

A boy and his sister go into town to get a bucket of milk. They talk themselves into being frightened of a scary tree with messy consequences. The realistic paintings of Ted Rand, eerie with their dark backgrounds, each spread over a page and a half and enrich the accompanying text.


There is a lot of conversation between the boy and his sister making this book a good choice for working with quotation marks.
