Friendship comes in the most unlikely of places when a lonely ghost meets a buoyant new companion.

“Above a noisy family,

On a crowded street,

In the big city,

In a dark lonely attic,

Lived Ghost.”

For Ghost, it can be pretty hard to make new friends. Some people are frightened, others don’t understand, most don’t seem to realize Ghost is even there.


One day when a bright red balloon wanders Ghost’s way, the connection is instantaneous. Together they do everything Ghost had ever hoped to share with a friend, but balloons rarely stick around for long.  That’s when Ghost learns that when you’re looking for a friend, a friend might find you.


With A Friend for Ghost Suzanne Kaufman, New York Times Bestselling illustrator of All Are Welcome, brings her talents to bear in an utterly charming tale about friendships and the wish to find them.
