Today’s Halloween Book Review is Boo to You! by Lois Ehlert. Here’s what it’s about:
The harvest garden is bursting with delicious vegetables, the pumpkins are decorated and lit, and the mice have their costumes ready. Everyone is looking forward to the annual Halloween-night feast. Scary Cat wasn’t invited to the party, but he seems to think he’s coming anyway. Time for a clever mouse-style surprise to outsmart that cat!
This is one of my favorite I’ve reviewed this month. The story is in rhyme and follows mice trying to avoid a cat during the fall harvest. They don’t want the cat to ruin their party. The illustrations are done in a collage of paper, twine, fall vegetables and pumpkin seeds for scary cat teeth. The book is colorful and I loved the animated mice, especially in their party masks.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
