Twelve year old Billy Broccoli is new to the neighborhood, and wants cool friends and a spot on the baseball team more than anything. But the one thing he never wanted is his own personal ghost. So imagine his surprise when he ends up sharing a room with Hoover Porterhouse, a funny teenage ghost with a whole lot of attitude. The four books in this series will delight kids not only with the hilarious antics but with the story of two boys, one alive and one a ghost, who become very unlikely friends.
"Hank Zipzer collaborators Winkler and Oliver’s Ghost Buddy series introduces an endearingly uncool hero with the dorky name of Billy Broccoli. Readers will root for Billy to conquer his klutziness; the final feel-good triumph is satisfying." -- Publishers Weekly
“The cast is thoroughly likable . A go-down-easy book that provides lightweight character building and comical turns." -- Kirkus
