GhostopolisGhostopolis, by Doug TenNapel [click here to place a hold]
[Ages 10+] Imagine Garth Hale's surprise when he's accidentally zapped to the spirit world by Frank Gallows, a washed-up ghost wrangler. Suddenly Garth finds he has powers the ghosts don't have, and he's stuck in a world run by the evil ruler of Ghostopolis, who would use Garth's newfound abilities to rule the ghostly kingdom. When Garth meets Cecil, his grandfather's ghost, the two search for a way to get Garth back home, and nearly lose hope until Frank Gallows shows up to fix his mistake.

Entertaining, hilarious, full of wacky creatures and characters (the ghost of Benedict Arnold, a skeleton ghost-horse named Skinny, a werewolf, and giant bugs, to name a few), chock-full of adventure (but also plenty of heart), Ghostopolis is not to be missed!
