Dear Reader,

My son was the inspiration for Gracie — when he was in elementary school, his teacher recommended that he get his eyes checked and he needed glasses. Since there were only a small number of students wearing them, I wanted to cheer him up by writing a story about how wearing glasses was fun. That was 40 years ago and he's now a university professor proudly sporting his glasses. I hope you enjoy this story about seeing things as they are whether you wear glasses or not, for Halloween and every day.

"Her indelible good cheer is appealing, and her Mr. Magoo-like mistakes are gently amusing. Sena's textured collage illustrations employ torn paper to evoke Gracie's fur; the simplicity of the compositions gears the book to younger readers." —Vicky Smith, Kirkus Reviews

"This well-illustrated and simple story will delight younger readers who enjoy knowing more than the main character. I can already imagine young children at storytime shouting out GRACIE, IT WAS A GHOST ALL ALONG!!!" —
