From the Publisher:
Ever since Dennis' father died, a parade of friendly ghosts has been passing through his bedroom. So he isn't surprised when the ghost of his Uncle Arvie shows up. But Arvie seems to want something from Dennis. How Dennis figures out how to please his ghost is a funny yet touching story of love, loss, confusion, and understanding.
Dennis has been seeing ghosts, lots of ghosts, ever since the death of his father. Most of the ghosts come and go, but then Dennis receives a visit from the ghost of his Uncle Arvie. Uncle Arvie has lots of plans for Dennis: he needs his help to find a lost love letter, finish a painting, and dig up a buried treasure for Dennis's Aunt Julia, who is Arvie's widow. Dennis loves being haunted by his uncle but wonders if the ghost of his own father will ever come to visit him.
