The days of childhood innocence are long past for me. As time progressed new challenges were faced. Many of us were forced to grow up too fast. Innocence was buried and imagination and creativity was shelved to learn other skills.I decided to see what it would be like to return to some books that I loved during childhood. There were two in particular that I thought of but it was A Ghost Named Fred that I found first. Like destiny, it just appeared in my house one day. I began to read it. Our story opens up with a young boy named George. George is presumed to be around 5-7 years old.

Unfortunately for George, there is nobody for him to play with that is his age. There is obviously an absence of a mother and father figure. George takes refuge in his imagination to pass the time. One day George pretends to be an astronaut He soon ventures very far away from home as becomes lost. He gets what he wants. Day soon turns to night and rain begins to pour. Without hesitation, George runs to a old house showered in darkness. In this house he finds a ghost named Fred. The book consists of dialogue between George and Fred and their search for treasure (a search for eternal companionship that George seeks).

This book is about the beauty of pure imagination that we are gifted as children. Paired with the search of an father figure (found in George) and the entertainment of unhinged fantasy that the too merge with each other, this childrens book runs deep in the roots of all of us. I think its good for us to look back and find that roses we forgot to appreciate the smell of and savoir it one last time. Writing and pacing is what you would expect, but it never bores.

On the entertainment director scale this book receives a Stephen Spielberg post ET. The illustrations happened to be unique and intriguing. I did not like the sudden ending of the book but I found myself to be satisfied.
