An enjoyable Christmas themed novella. The main character is a ghost named Marmaduke. He is a stodgy, kind of uptight and rigid ghost of 71 years. But as he is hanging out in a Christmas tree lot, he notices a young boy (Samuel), who appears to be all alone. They begin a dialogue, which is both funny at times and heart-warming.
Samuel has only asked for a friend for Christmas. He thinks he has received his gift early when he happens upon Marmaduke. This just won’t do…according to Marmaduke. So he sets out to find Samuel a friend before Christmas.
A fun, quick read, with an abundance of Christmas feel good cheer in the end 🙂
