Some kids are scared of ghosts, others live for the thrill of a transparent friend.

For those who have kids who fall into the second camp, the new picture book My First Ghost (complete with a ghost inside!) is sure to be a treat, not a trick.

In the style of My First Pet books, authors Maggie Miller and Michael Leviton wrote a story about caring for your very first ghost, singing about a friend “you can’t see or touch.” Along with colorful retro video of kids hanging with their invisible friend, the song declares: “Buy the book with the ghost inside, and your house will be officially haunted.”

Whether you’re more a Casper girl or a fan of Nearly Headless Nick, this musical trailer for the story is sure to get stuck in your head, just in time for Halloween.
