Since Gus first appeared in Gus Was a Friendly Ghost (1962), he's been a popular Halloween character, though most of the books about him are now o.p. Fans may welcome this latest addition; the undemanding text is easily read while the sprightly illustrations feature the cute little spirit dressed unalarmingly in a patterned sheet. As in the other books, the plot here is slight: Gus now lives in the attic of a museum, which he is supposed to keep clean during the curator's winter vacation. Instead, Gus goes off on other rather mild adventures, but does come home in time to prepare for the curator's return. Most annoying to the logical-minded reader will be Gus's oddly mixed qualities: he's weightless, but is able to swim and dive and to sprain his ankle and burn his fingers. Forgettable.
