Boo! by Tracey Corderoy and Caroline Pedler
Hullabaloo the rabbit loves playing boo!But when he jumps out to surprise his friends he causes chaos - Squirrel lands in a puddle...splat!Hedgehog topples over...crash!And poor Timid Mouse bursts into tears!"NO MORE BOOS!" everyone shouts.Whatever will Hullabaloo do? A hilarious book about a very playful rabbit by children's favourite Tracey Corderoy (author of Hubble, Bubble Granny Trouble and The Grunt and The Grouch) this noisy tale is perfect for boisterious, full-of-beans four to six year old children.
Regular readers of my blog will know that Tracey Corderoy is a firm favourite children's author of both myself and my chidlren and I love receiving all of her books to review. They are also so different - lots of adorable, cute and cuddly characters along with the Grunt and the Grouch who are adorable in their own special way!
In her latest book, Boo! is definitely an adorable, cute and cuddly character. An adorable rabbit who loves to surprise his friends by bounding on in with a great big BOO! The story is, as ever, fantastically written, and there is a moral to the story, encouraging young children not to surprise everyone all the time when announcing one's arrival. The pictures are also adorable, each character cute and loveable. I think I like the hedgehogs the best, but it is a difficult decision.
The book would make a fantastic book to share at storytime, although it may get a little noisy at bedtime as I am sure little ones will want to shout 'Boo!' throughout the story. Great for little ones (under 5's) to share with their peers.
Thank you to the publishers, Little Tiger Press, for sending me the book to review in return for an honest review.
