The Boy Who Wasn't There by Hans Wilhelm

There was once a girl named Sarah who was very bored and lonely. Her only two friends were her puppets Punch and Polly. But one day she went out to the beach and that's where her story began.

I love this story and the style it is told in. The illustrations draw you in even more and bring this book to complete amazingness. Hans Wilhelm is a very talented author and gives us a vivid image of Sarah as she goes from being a lonely girl in New England in the 1800's to finding a friend. She is aided by a boy who is most likely a ghost! He shows her his little sister who is very ill. But when Sarah shows her Polly and Punch the girl is very happy and begins to heal.

This story will make you laugh and cry and is definitely worth reading and I would take it to show and tell as well because this book is top shelf!
