McBroom's ghost by Sid Fleischman( Book )

5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tongue-in-cheek book about a ghost on the McBroom farm should elicit a few chuckles from readers. The ghost comes a-haunting when an "uncommon cold winter" sets in, though it is "not so cold that an honest man would tell fibs about it." That being said, farmer Josh McBroom does have a tendency to stretch the truth quite a bit. He, his wife and eleven children are amusing characters. McBroom sounds like the hillbilly farmer that he is, with words like confounded, pesky, ornery, etc. The well-paced story has quite a clever ending
