Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When the avian prima donna introduced in Grumpy Bird (2007) gets bonked on the head by a ball and starts to cry, not Raccoon’s kiss, Rabbit’s hug, a cookie from Beaver, or a Band-Aid from Fox can stop the flow of tears. Though Tankard offers no definite clues in either the short text or his brightly colored woodland scenes, readers are likely to suspect after a while that Bird is milking the injury—especially when, seeing all his friends likewise bursting into tears, he loudly announces that he’s “ALL BETTER NOW!” Not only will Bird’s histrionics strike chords of recognition in parents, but the wide-eyed, very simply drawn animals suspended against collages of reworked photos and sketched-in shrubbery will also catch and hold the attention even of very young audiences. Bet high on this becoming another storytime winner, just like its predecessor. Grades K-3. --John Peters

Review

"... kids and adults will laugh in spite of themselves... the theme of friendship coupled with Tankards's whimsical visuals make [this] an ideal book for storytime." ―Quill & Quire, starred review --This text refers to the Board book edition.

After becoming completely smitten with Grumpy Bird, our family was so delighted to follow Bird on a new adventure with his darling band of forest friends. The characters are whimsical indeed, but with just the right dose of reality: not all days are good, and heads sometimes do get bumped. Thankfully, friendship (and distraction by good friends) is the best medicine! Bird is a wonderful preschool anti-hero -- loveable in his orneriness, because we ALL have those moments.

If you are new to Tankard's Bird, I'd definitely start with Grumpy Bird -- it's hard to beat. But for the seasoned Bird veteran, Boo Hoo bird is a welcome sequel.

This is the second book by Tankard in this series. It is fantastic. The first book Grumpy Bird was great also. In this story Bird is playing catch with Raccoon and gets bonked on the head. All of Bird's friends try to make it better by different means. A kiss, a hug, a cookie, a game and a band-aid all do not help. All of Bird's friends, Beaver, Raccoon, Sheep, Beaver and Fox cry because they cannot help bird.

Tankard tells simple stories with great illustrations that will teach children great messages. His books are ones I share with my children and think they are great for children of all ages.

This book was read at a local library storytime for toddlers. My nephew, like most toddlers, is fascinated with "boo boos" and seemed to really enjoy the book. We checked it out...and renewed it NUMEROUS times! So, for his 3rd birthday, I purchased this and Grumpy Bird by the same author. This is a very sweet story of of bird "bonked" on the head while playing and his friends attempting to make him feel better. It expresses pain, empathy, frustration, and friendship in a humorous manner. The illustrations are bright and eye-catching. My nephew, his mom, and I thoroughly enjoy it!

Cute as could be. This is a great book for a little person. I enjoyed reading it with our little person very much. She liked the book and the illustrations as well. Recommended for young children. Very good.

My daughter has a lot of books, but sometimes I find that I cannot always guess which books will be her favorite. So instead of buying 100 books, she may not love. I started checking a 100 books out of the library to see which ones she loved. On one of the reading days at the library, they read Grumpy Bird and I thought it was sort of cute. The librarian suggested Boo Hoo Bird. I was a bit worried that my drama-queen daughter might be a bit too encouraged by Boo Hoo bird's dramatic response to his bonk. Actually, it hasn't made her response to her own bonks any worse or better. Although she will randomly spout off phrases from the book, like telling me she is dizzy or can hardly walk, when neither of those two things are true. All in all, it's a cute book and an different storyline. The underlying message is about friendship and I think it's a bit about "getting over it" too. I actually chuckle a bit at the end when bird gets bonked again. Definitely, this has come out to be one her self-selected favorites.

I purchased this book for my granddaughter who first read it in her pre-school. Every time I took her to pre-school, this is the only book she wanted to read. The book has wonderful graphics, is easily understood by young children and a treat for the parent/grandparent/caregiver who is reading the book. I highly recommend this book. My granddaughter is now almost four but she first began "reading" this book when she was a little over 2 years old. The moral of the story is quite simple - we are all able to move beyond setbacks and pain. It does have a funny, quirky ending that both the child and the adult will enjoy.

While in NY visiting my grandson Joaquin, I purchased Grumpy Bird for him - when I got back to NM I got one for me and we read it together on Skype several times a week - I went to Amazon to see if there was another Bird book and found Boo Hoo Bird - at 3 my grandson has the entire book memorized - has different faces and voices for each of the animals - so we now read Boo Hoo Bird first then Grumpy Bird which is his second favorite - highly recommend for children 2 years and older - the pictures are bright and verse easy to listen to.
