Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The mice are having a harvest party in the garden and everyone is invited, except for the scary cat. He eats meat and makes the mice feel "edgy." Once the house lights are turned off and night closes in, the decorations start looking mighty spooky. Perhaps they're just scary enough to give that pesky cat a fright? Indeed, he ends up being a scaredy cat and the story concludes with the mice partying on. Ehlert uses her signature collage artwork to evoke the textures, shapes, and colors of autumn that pop against the red backgrounds, teal paper, and green vegetables. The art is more frenetic here than in some of her other work, but it suits the story perfectly. It's only natural that the garden would be a whirlwind of activity. The rhyme scheme works well, although there is one odd line: "Seeing that puss could spoil our summer." Yes, "summer" rhymes with the previous "bummer," but the action takes place in the fall. The end is enhanced by photos of various squashes, nuts, and fruits (all labeled) as well as a recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds. This title will please Ehlert's fans, and it is tailor-made for autumn-themed programs. Pair it with Anne Rockwell's Apples and Pumpkins (S & S, 1989) or Carin Berger's The Little Yellow Leaf (HarperCollins, 2008).—Laura Lutz, formerly at Queens Borough Public Library, NY

My first grade students really enjoyed looking closely at the illustrations. It was like a scavenger hunt as they realized how each character had been created by leaves, seed pods, etc. They tried to name every thing that was used to illustrate. When we got to the end of the story, it was very nice to see that all the things used to create the pictures were listed and labeled. Clever!

This book is fun and clever too. Love the art of the author/illustrator. These mice are fun and the cat is spooky without too much fright :)

The artwork is vibrant and creative. I have this book sitting out in my house all the time so people can admire the freaked out cat on the cover. Other reviewers have said that the story is too scary for kids, but I disagree. Scary stories can be fun! This scary story is silly - not serious at all. Think along the lines of Roald Dahl's "Dirty Beasts." Chances are your kids will love it.

I adore Lois Ehlert's books. As an art teacher I believe her artwork is skillful and unique and her personal touches to all the stories offer teachable and relatable moments to children. Boo to You is a great addition to any Halloween book collection. The pictures are a treat for the eyes while you read about the tricksy mice who try and scare away the cat!

My 5 year old LOVES this book. We read it every night. Thankfully it is fairly short and not one of those books that I dread having to read every night. Originally borrowed it from our local library but every time I tried to return it he got upset and wouldn't let it go, so once I ran out of renewals I decided to just hop online and buy him his own copy.
