A husband's obsession with historic reenactments threatens to tear his small family apart when they purchase an old house that may be haunted. A jealous wife and a young son with second sight complicate matters as the ghost of a young soldier, a survivor of the Battle of Culloden, Scotland's last stand against the English, inhabits their life. His insistence that a bloodied relic in their possession be returned to the soil of Scotland wreaks havoc upon their world. An unexpected brush with death, the exposure of a beloved leader as a fraud, and a view into the reality of history puts things into rightful perspective.

Giggle is a happy, heart-warming little ghost. Although most people can't see her, she stands up for what's right, finds safe homes for animals, and figures out which grown-ups, human or otherwise, can help her get out of trouble. She also loves to think up tricks. Her magic is so strong that she can wish herself and a friend to the moon. Giggle and her parents are not ghosts in the Halloween sense. They are a family of spirits who live in the bell tower of a church in New England. The pastor, an Irish priest, is proud to call them his friends. Right above Giggle and her family in the tower is Uncle Pete, a bachelor ghost who plays the piccolo. In the room above him is Mrs. Wigglebone, a skeleton lady who polishes the church bells. Not far away, in the synagogue, is Uncle Morty, a wise old Jewish ghost. Among Giggle's friends are her third-grade classmates Rusty and Lenore; Bobbi, the only blue ghost on earth; Brenda, an African-American visitor from Florida; and Ryan, a ten-year-old boy with cerebral palsy. With these friends, Giggle celebrates all the happy days of the year, from Hanukkah to St. Patrick's Day.

The drawing on the cover of this book, and the subtitle above, make it quite clear that the story of Opalina involves a cat. It can even be assumed to contain a ghost cat. Beyond that, the reader must proceed to devour this book in order to discover the amazing variety of its contents. About all we have room for here is to say that this is more than the story of a haunted house; it is the story of the haunt. And what a delectable, willful, all-seeing, unpredictable haunt this eighteenth-century White Persian proves to be, as she inscrutably observes succeeding generations of children living, playing, quarreling, adventuring, growing up and away from "her" house. The drawings in the text by the distinguished artist-author help to introduce the reader to as beguiling an album of characters as ever graced a family tree.

This book fully captures Tanner's determined spirit as he tracked down what was then, as now, one of ornithology's true Holy Grails."--BOOK JACKET.
