Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Children will love this adorable ghost who proudly proclaims how great his BOO power is. The story begins with two friends, Johnny Boo and Squiggle, playing a game where Squiggle wants Johnny Boo to catch him. This does not work out well, until Johnny Boo uses his BOO power and little Squiggle falls straight to the ground. Now Squiggle is angry at him. They decided the best way to remain friends is to share some ice cream together and Johnny Boo tells him that he has secret ice cream. When Squiggle learns it is secret ice cream, little Squiggle gets so excited he yells, "Secret Ice Cream" and the ice cream monsters hear him. Both friends start to run away with the monster right behind them. Squiggle can fly but Johnny Boo cannot and the monster is very close. What happens next is a series of events that are full of excitement and laughter. This book is pure delight to read. The illustrations are great and both boys and girls will enjoy the story. This is the type of story that little children will think about and want it read to them repeatedly. There is one scene at the end of the story tells about Squiggle accidental being swallowed by the monster and the burping begins. Kids are going to love this part. The words used in the story are simple, but the word choices are great. This is perfect book to read aloud or have a beginning reader read it aloud. A great story. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
Kirkus Reviews
Kochalka dishes up a brief episode in comics-style panels, featuring two ghosts, a monster, melted ice cream and burping. If that's not a foolproof formula for pleasing the Oshkosh set, nothing is. Looking something like a one-eyed pink-and-yellow sock monkey in the bright, very simply drawn panels, the monster insists to Johnny Boo and his ghostlet companion Squiggle that "I'm not BAD, I'm nice"-but so greedily does it gulp an offered carton of ice cream that little Squiggle goes down too. Nor does the monster show much remorse . . . until Squiggle uses his special "squiggle power" to do loop-de-loops that force the monster to belch him out. Even then the burps don't stop until Johnny uses his special "BOO power" to scare them away. Johnny's debut is slender, even for the price, but he's a true crowd-pleaser: playful, clever and ever ready to forgive, forget or bellow out a BOO. (Graphic novel. 5-7)
