Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Duck, Cow, Cat and Dog may seem unlikely caregivers for a hysterical infant, but they have some reasonable ideas of how to mollify him--and they'll likely have readers hooting and howling all along the way. "Feed him," says the dog, after a ducky toy doesn't work, and they offer the baby everything from bananas to cat chow, accompanied by a chipper refrain of moos, quacks, meows and bow-wows. But despite these and several other earnest attempts, nothing seems to halt the stream of tears from the round-headed, single-tufted tyke. Belgian artist Godon's pastels heighten the comedy by giving the howling baby one entire side of each full-bleed spread, while the well-meaning quartet huddles on the other. Finally, Duck strikes pay dirt by putting Boo-Hoo Baby down for a nap, where he stays just long enough for the animals to collapse from exhaustion (in the last spread, they slumber as the wide-eyed infant peers through the bars of the crib). Cowell (Don't Do That, Kitty Kilroy!) and Godon (the Nelly and Caesar board books) strip the familiar genre to its bare bones, and it feels almost new again. Cowell's sense of economy and pacing move the story along at a fast clip, while Godon calls attention to the situation's vaudevillian qualities by framing the spreads on the same plane, as if they were scenes from a stage. Ages 2-6. (Oct.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
A quartet of animal friends attempt to soothe a crying infant in What Shall We Do with the Boo-Hoo Baby? by Cressida Cowell, illus. by Ingrid Godon. PW said of the picture book, published in 2000, "Cowell's sense of economy and pacing move the story along at a fast clip, while Godon calls attention to the situation's vaudevillian qualities."
School Library Journal
PreS-The Boo-hoo Baby will not stop crying in spite of the efforts of a cow, cat, dog, and duck. Each animal tries a new trick to placate baby but only duck succeeds. Cowell's text is simple, to the point, and, best of all, full of repetition and animal sounds that delight toddlers. Godon's uncomplicated illustrations of the sobbing child and bewildered animals are a perfect match. Destined to be a staple in preschool programs, this title is a joy to read aloud and the large, uncluttered pictures work equally well for a large group as for one-on-one sharing.-Ann Cook, formerly at Winter Park Public Library, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A quartet of well-meaning animals attempts to soothe a fractious infant. When baby begins to cry, a cat, dog, duck, and cow gather together to ease the troubled tot's woes. The animals try various solutions: feeding, bathing, and playing with the baby, without success. Each attempt to console the infant is met with a chorus of animals sounds, culminating in the familiar wail. "So they played with the baby. ‘Quack!' said the duck. ‘Bow-wow!' said the dog. ‘Moo!' said the cow. ‘Meow!' said the cat, and . . . ‘BOO-HOO-HOO!' said the baby." Ultimately the wise old duck suggests that they put baby down to sleep for the night and soon all that is heard are the gentle snores of the child. However, the final pages offer a wry salute to weary parents and caretakers as the final illustration depicts the frazzled animals in a sleepy heap while the bright-eyed tot peeks out from his crib. Cowell's spare prose provides readers with an introduction to several familiar animals and their calls. It is Godon's illustrations that infuse some levity into the simple, rather slow-moving tale. The cherubic tot, with a lone curl perched atop its bald head, is an adorable watering pot, and the facial expressions of hapless animals as they bumble their way through the tale are comical. Little ones will enjoy the notion of a bevy of barnyard animals as caretakers and the repetition of the tale easily lends itself to reader participation—a perk for preschool-age audiences.
