Ghoulia lives in Crumbling Manor with her Auntie Departed and spends most of her time playing with Tragedy, her beloved albino greyhound. But things aren't as easy as they seem for this little zombie girl-all she wants is a real friend. She tries to venture past the manor's walls, but she can't hide her pale green skin or the deep purple circles under her eyes. The other children will be afraid of her, and no one will want to be her friend. But when Halloween rolls around, Ghoulia hatches a brilliant plan. All the other, ordinary children will be dressed up like monsters, so Ghoulia can go out into the town and be entirely herself. In the end, all the kids realize that Ghoulia is (almost) just like them and learn that friendship can come in many forms.

"Narrator Jordan Killam sets a light mood for a tale of one special zombie and a host of Halloween creatures. Ghoulia lives in Crumbling Manor and is observant of her auntie's rules, which include NOT leaving the grounds and NOT playing with the neighborhood children. But when Ghoulia overhears these same children discussing "one special night," she hatches a plan for friendship. Will it work? Killam clearly and steadily details Ghoulia's preparations--borrowing makeup, styling her hair, and finding a suitable satchel for treats--and adds spice as she portrays assorted family members. Her asides--such as a description of a worm delicacy--are shared in a confidential manner. The background music and sound effects are well suited to a spooky evening.
