 Ghost Night ($16.99; Sept. 1996; 32 pp.; 0-8037-1946-9): An unresolved love affair and sibling rivalry add some unexpected twists to this 3-D photographic ghost story. On a dare, ``you'' are spending the night in a house haunted by the Delancy family, all of whom supposedly died in a yellow fever epidemic soon after the Civil War. But there's a skeleton in the closet, or, more literally, in a trunk. All of the ghostly family members make 3-D appearances (provided readers peer through the special plastic glasses that are included). The scare factor is diminished considerably by the glare of dark glossy pages, tiny images, and the inconvenience of flipping the glasses on and off to alternately view images and read. (Picture book. 8-11)
