yo wa mushi o bake
tried to translate, came up with following from japanese dictionary.
yo-over....or world, age, or generation
ke-hair or fur
I know I am on the right track. there is a monster on the back cover, so it makes sense for ke to be fur. Uh, theres this thing that looks like a gingerbread cookie on the front, and he looks kinda lost, so that would make place make sense too.
I am dying to know what this means, sould someone please help me out?
Thanks guys! B)

弱虫（よわむし） means wuss
おばけ means ghost
The Wussy ghost
Is this the book?
Changed from Whimpy to Wussy. It needed a little "scardy-cat" feel to it.

aww That looks like a nice book. For a newbie.
The thing with these children's books is that even though they are written in a very, very simple manner and contain usually almost no kanji, there are still a lot of words that a newbie wouldn't understand. By the time Japanese children read these books they already have a very wide range of vocabulary they acquired from their several years of life. Newbies on the other hand are usually those who have only been studying for a few months so most likely a child with "years of experience" is going to know a lot more than a dedicated studier for a few months.
So for the OP, to have trouble with just the title of the book, he might have a pretty hard time actually reading the book.
