Weekly "GSF Booktalk" #5

Here is booktalk #5 written by members of the Great Stone Face Committee to spark interest in reading all 20 titles on this year's list of nominees for the state award:

Ghost Knight
by Cornelia Funke

Eleven year old Jon Whitcroft never expected his mother to ship him off to boarding school, but she did. He had tried to get rid of his mother’s boyfriend, A.K.A. “The Beard”, but nothing worked.  Now, he’s attending his father’s old school but teachers and school mates are not the only ones at school.  Jon has been confronted by three horrible ghosts and revenge is on their minds, but why?   What has Jon done to them?  What can he do to combat these ghosts?  There is an old school legend about a ghost knight who helps those in need.  If Jon raises the specter of the ghost knight, will he help defeat the evil ghosts?  Jon is desperate, he’ll do anything to stay alive.
(Booktalk by Susan McDonald-GSF Committee/Weeks Public Library, Greenland, NH)
