Ol' Clip Clop: A Ghost Story by Pat McKissack

Ol' Clip-Clop book cover; a colonial man on horsebackJohn Leep "had a mean streak in him that ran the length of his long, thin body. Wasn't poverty that made him hard. He had plenty of money. But John Leep had a stingy heart." 

And so the stage is set with a selfish greedy man ready to get his comeuppance.

With the right elements of spooky, this is a perfect ghost story to share this Halloween. Recommended for grades 2 and up. (Or, a really bold first grader). Read with the lights on or off, either way, you'll never hear the sound of "clip-clop" the same way again!
