From School Library Journal Grade 2-4-Henry is a ghost with problems. After recovering from measles and jaundice, he has several accidents resulting in broken bones. Finally, he falls asleep at night-definitely unghostly behavior. His friends rush him to the hospital where Doctor Ouch sets him right by adjusting his inner clock, which looks like an old wind-up alarm clock. Henry is good as new, except for "one small problem Every once in a while, he rings!" This sophisticated picture book has a European flavor and is more like an illustrated joke than a story. The clever cartoon illustrations are appealing, with bright contrasts against a black background and varying perspectives. The doctor's tools include huge needles and a toolbox full of wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. This will be fun for kids (and adults) who love a joke, and great for reluctant readers.
