Help Me Find This Book!

There is a book from my childhood that I have been trying to find for almost 10 years. I cannot remember the name. It is a compilation of stories. I have a few stories that I remember but the rest I don’t. The ones I remember are;

Katy and the Big Snow
The House Biter
There were Three Ghostesses (this is spelled properly)

I attached a photo that is the exact photo of the Three Ghostesses story from the book but it doesn’t appear to list where is came from. Please help, I love reading, I write stories constantly and it’s because of books like these from my childhood that have inspired me become a writer and I want to pass this down to my boys.


P.S. please respond to this via email with the subject line “Lost Book” but I will not click on hyperlinks for safety.

Looks like it might be Sounds Around the Clock by Bill Martin.

See reference to House Biter here.

Also try a "reverse lookup" on that photo.

Re: Help Me Find This Book!

https://www.cse.iitk.ac.in/users/amit/b ... -book.html includes the ghostesses poem. Saying you won't click on hyperlinks is far too cautious. I am sorry to hear you are so paranoid. You should just get anti virus protection on your computer.
