Mexican artist Flavia Z. Drago wrote and illustrated Gustavo, the Shy Ghost. Gustavo enjoys being paranormal, passing through walls, glowing in the dark and so on. He loves playing the violin and is in love with 'the prettiest monster in town' (Alma), but is super shy.

Gustavo is terrified of making friends, and the other monsters just can't seem to see him. What can he do? He sends a letter, inviting the others to his violin concert on the Day of the Dead at the cemetery. No-one shows up but he plays anyway - and his happiness playing makes Gustavo glow. Can you guess what happens?

The colors are vibrant and the monsters prolific, just what's needed for the scary season!
