Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Johnny Boo and his friend Squiggle are enjoying "sharing time" one night when Squiggle shares his desire to be able to twinkle like the stars. In explaining what he would do if he could twinkle, he accidentally messes up Johnny Boo's hair. That leads to an argument. Johnny cannot stop him from crying until he flips his hair around, which makes Squiggle laugh and ends the argument. Then Squiggle flies back into the sky, leaving Johnny alone. He does not like being alone in the dark, and he likes it even less when a large monster suddenly appears. Fortunately, the monster is a good one named the Ice Cream Monster. Squiggle flies back to earth, yelling "Squiggle Power, Activate!" and flying around the monster's head so many time that it becomes dizzy and falls down. Johnny tries to explain to Squiggle that what he has done is naughty. When Ice Cream Monster feels better, the three of them play and laugh so much that Johnny Boo says his hair has "Giggle Power." This story seems to lack something. When Squiggle is flying around making the Ice Cream Monster dizzy, he honestly believes he is saving his friend from a bad monster, so I do not understand why the author wrote that he was naughty. I also question the presentation of Johnny Boo's hair. Although most of the problems that occur in the story are said to relate to Johnny Boo's hair, the illustrations only showed a fur tuft on the top of the character's head, and it really did not look funny at all. Each picture shows him looking the same as the one before and the ones after—even in a scene where he was said to have shaken it very hard. Still, young children will enjoy the illustrations, and this is an easy book to read. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs

K-Gr 2

This sequel to The Best Little Ghost in the World (Top Shelf, 2008) isn't as fully realized and compelling as its predecessor, but it retains the same charm and humor. Johnny Boo, a little ghost, has an ability to scare called "boo power," while his pet ghost uses his "squiggle power" to swoop and swirl through the air. When Squiggle flies upward to find out how stars get their "twinkle power," Johnny Boo runs into their old friend Ice Cream Monster, who wants to learn about Johnny's special talent. When Squiggle returns, the three friends invent an entirely new skill that sends people running: wiggle power. Johnny Boo's hair, however, performs the best trick of all: a flop to the side that leaves Squiggle (and, likely, readers) in stitches. Characters have genuine feelings-they get scared, upset, and jealous. They can be friendly and self-centered. Young readers will relate to the honest interactions among them. The vividly colored cartoon illustrations are basic, yet pack an expressive punch. Likable characters, humor, and attractive art make this title appropriate for general purchase.-Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI
