Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 A little ghost tries on different disguises, hoping to scare his family. He turns to a book of Scary Things for inspiration, but his Frankenstein, Dracula, and Mummy impersonations all fail to elicit screams. Ironically, when he stumbles into a white sheet left on a clothesline, he finally gets his desired response. Aside from the ghost's determined shouts of BOOO!, few words appear. The story cinematically comes to life through Fenton's detailed oil paintings. The not-so-scary goblins have enormous round heads with pinprick eyes and small wispy bodies that seem to float against the velvety black backgrounds. The striking design also features a glow-in-the-dark cover. Spooky fun. Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

I just received our copy of Boo (pre ordered after our family loved Fenton's first book). We love reading this book just before bed time..it glow's in the dark and is the perfect reason to dim the lights before bed time. Fenton is an excellent illustrator and this book doesn't have too much text so it is perfect for right before bed when the kids are the sleepiest and they need to really relax. The illustrations are timeless and the ending is adorable. This is sure to be an instant classic in our home...Fenton is getting better and better and we can't wait for the next book!!!

Format: Hardcover
True, it's not quite that time of year yet, but this laugh provoking "ghost story" is something youngsters will consider a treat when a young ghost tries everything he can think of as he attempts to frighten the other ghosts in his family.

This is a picture book in every sense of the word - pages are filled with smile provoking illustrations and not any text (save for lots of "boos.") The illustrations are bright, imaginative, and surprising. They're rendered in oil paints and that young ghost rascal glows in the dark.

BOO! Is a fun way to remind youngsters that ghosts aren't anything to fear.

We liked it as a story and the illustrations were cute, but the misspelling at the end is really rather ridiculous. Hello? Editor?? The little ghost should be winning the "Scariest Spook Competition," not "Competion." Boo.
