She Wanted to Be Haunted
Clarissa the cottage is adorable, bright pink with shiny windows and flowers growing all around her. But Clarissa doesn’t want to be adorable—being cute is boring. She’d rather be like her father, a creepy castle home to vampires and crypts. Or like her mother, a witch’s hut full of spells and smells.
Clarissa needs something to haunt her rooms, something that will make her less ordinary and less lonely. In order to attract the perfect spectre, she’ll need to change her tone. But her attempts to become haunted make her even cuter than before! Maybe it’s better to just be true to yourself...and THEN perhaps just the right friend will come along.
With whimsical, rhyming stanzas, She Wanted to be Haunted is a delightful, lyrical twist on the ever-important message to be yourself.
