PreS-Gr 1—The gang from Rex Wrecks It are back for a new tale about playing together. "Being new can be scary, even when everyone is friendly." And so it is when Boo, looking much like a Pac-Man ghost, arrives at the playground. The other creatures (robot, dinosaur, unicorn bunny, and adorable monster) invite him to play, but finding a game for them all is tricky. Bounce-ball, pick-up twigs, and tag are all a fail, as Boo is intangible. Boo is ready to just disappear (boo-hoo) when a game of hide-and-seek begins, an activity for which Boo was practically made. "This is Boo. He's new, but he fits right in." Clanton's visuals and simple text are the perfect combination for this read-aloud. The first two pages humorously set up the premise with an arrow and text declaring "This is Boo." Ah, but Boo is in fact on the facing page, as the additional text and illustration show. With a tan background and single color foreground, Clanton makes it easy for readers/listeners to focus on the action. Using ink, pencil, watercolor, and digital magic, Clanton's illustrations deftly depict the action and facial expressions of his cartoon characters. Who knew the awkwardness of a failed game could be shown so simply and yet so well? VERDICT Clanton addresses one of life's difficult experiences for all ages in this humorous book. There's a built-in fan base from previous titles, but this is also a great title to entice newcomers to the series.—Catherine Callegari, Reston Regional Library, VA
Clanton’s simple story broaches common anxieties that come with being new, and he buoys it with a positive message of inclusion. His amiable illustrations, rendered in ink, pencil, watercolors, and “digital magic,” will further allay children’s fears...A welcome, and welcoming, read.
Boo and his new pals are all expressive, especially the enthusiastic Rex. A great example for both new kids and those welcoming them—at Halloween or for the rest of the year.
The ink, pencil, and watercolor illustrations capture Boo’s evolution from shy and tentative to happy and confident, often with just the tilt of an eyebrow or the crumple or curve of a mouth...The text is as brief as can be, augmented with often-humorous dialogue and sound effects, comics-style—making this winsome picture book suitable for preschoolers and emerging readers alike.

The text and illustrations are simple, adorable, and clever. It's both sweet and funny. My 4-yr-old and I both love it.
