Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett
Leo, a lonely ghost, lives in an empty house. When a new family moves in they are unwelcoming. “The family called in a scientist, a clergyman, and a psychic to get rid of the ghost. But they should have saved their money. Leo knew he was unwanted. He said goodbye to his home and left.” He befriends a girl, but as her imaginary friend, not a ghost. Leo reveals his true identity when he thwarts a robbery, but Jane accepts and embraces Leo’s true identity.
