Read full description of the books:
Full of old-fashioned, cozy, Halloween-y wonderfulness! The illustrations remind me so much of Shepherd's for "Whinnie the Pooh" (I think the kitty is a relative of Tigger!) This is a story of sweet ghosts who have a happy and gentle purpose in houses; and of one ghost in particular who is temporarily displaced. First published in 1944.
The "About Georgie and Robert Bright" bio on the back flap is great and I reprint it here in case others are not lucky enough to have the dust jacket on their copy (mine is from the library):
"Robert Bright's children, according to him, have always liked ghosts. His daughter Beatrice began when she was five to look under her bed iin hopes of finding one there. She had the idea that if she behaved herself very well a little ghost might visit her. And as soon as her younger brother Robin began to talk, says Mr. Bright, he made it clear that he felt the same way. So Mr. Bright has done GEORGIE for Beatrice and Robin--and for all children who, unlike grown-ups, are NOT frightened by imagination."

Read information about the authorRobert Bright was born on Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 1902 and passed away in San Francisco in 1988. He spent his childhood in Europe and completed his education at Phillips Academy, Andover, and Princeton University.
His vocations included those of newspaper reporter in Baltimore and Paris, art and music critic in Sante Fe, New Mexico, teacher in Boston, and novelist. Believing that "the imaginative child in the imaginative man is fortunately never far away," Mr. Bright has delighted in writing his numerous books for children. Many of these star Georgie, the friendly little ghost who first appeared in 1944 and has been charming young readers on both sides of the Atlantic ever since.
