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

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 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!

Format: Hardcover
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.

My girl goes back to this book often to read or just for quick look. The picture is bright and cute, the story is adorable. I read it again when she fell and had to put a bandaid on her. I would recommand this book to friends.

Bought this for my 3 year old daughter and she loves the book. We have read it over and over again, n now when she gets a boo-boo she wants me to do all that is done to the Boo Hoo Bird, before getting a bandage! Am so glad she likes it, n the illustrations are nice too.

My five year old loves this book! And it is one of the books that keeps the parents interest as well. Just a sweet story about friends helping out a friend with a boo boo. Recommended for sure.
