What Happened to Kimble's Mother? Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story

What Happened to Kimble's Mother?



The Book Connection Interview by Cheryl Malandrinos
     “What
happened to Kimble's mother is the central mystery that guides and
motivates everything that Kimble, the ghost of a 10-year-old girl,
does. So, it was a topic that needed to be addressed.  It was really
important to me to deal with grief in a realistic way.

In so many
children’s books, the author sort of glosses over death and grief as if
it’s not really that big of a deal, all in the interest of moving the
plot along. But it is a big deal. If a spirit can be earthbound because
of unhealed grief, then that grief must be dealt with or the author is
just cheating the reader.”
–Linda Thieman, author
Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story

 
Read the rest of the interview here.




[Reading Level 3, 280L, for ages 7-10]




Nine-year-old Katie Russell and her family look
normal. But the Russells don't know they are living with Kimble,
the ghost of a ten-year-old girl.
That is, until Katie discovers Kimble
and the two of them set off on a quest to find out what happened to
Kimble's mother.
