This anthology of audience participation stories is the next in a series of books that began with the publication of Joining In. Jennifer Justice, a marvelous storyteller, combines her keen editorial ability with her intimate story sense to bring us into the realm of ghostly humor and fright. The Ghost & I features 16 tales by awardwinners Joe Bruchac, Rafe Martin, Heather Forest, Laura Simms, Jay O'Callahan, and more. The stories, geared for ages 5 - 14, vary from funny to frightening, and from simple to complex in plot and imagery. Some of the stories invite a great deal of physical participation, while others simply inspire active listening by repetition and anticipation.
  • The Ghost & I is one of the two best scary story collections for new tellers along with Margaret Read MacDonald's When the Lights Go Out: Twenty Scary Tales to Tell. Both give tips on telling and suggested age ranges as well as very good versions of slightly to very scary folktales. Highly recommended.

  • If you are ever called upon to tell a scary story and don't have one ready, pull this book down from the shelf. Not only is it filled with good stories to tell, but it also classifies them according to the appropriate age of the listeners. And in the margins are suggestions for gestures, sounds and so forth.
    I used it for my first adventure in public storytelling last Halloween. All the stories were a success.
    The theme of this book is the involvment of the audience. That is proving to be, in my experience, a key to good storytelling. I thank Jennifer Justice for starting me off on the right foot.
    An excellent way to learn more about storytelling itself.

  • I have used the story about boy who drew cats often in therapeutic storytelling to teach self-esteem and find courage to face your demons within yourself.
