I was tracing the history of bedsheet ghosts in movies and media during an interview the other day, but I think my lifelong love of all things ghostly surely began with the Gus Was A Friendly Ghost books by Jane Thayer.
This picture above and the one below are both shockingly representative of a scene in A Ghost Story!
I also love that the title contains the word Was, putting the series definitively in the past tense: Gus Was A Friendly Ghost. That sort of contextual titling is like catnip to me! I need to go to my parents' house and find these. Maybe the one where Gus finds a baby ghost in a crib would be good fodder for a sequel.
