My first read of the Read-A-Thon was Wilde's short story about the ghost of Canterville whose hauntings are ridiculed by the American family that moves into his castle. It's a sweet little story with a very comedic comical twist to usual ghost stories. It reminds me very much of the cartoonish storytelling you'd find in a Donald Duck magazine from when I was a kid.
