Why is Boo Cow haunting them, and how can they banish this ghostly bovine visitor? Baehr's fun and accessible text make this book a great read-aloud. With unexpected twists and turns, BOO COW keeps readers guessing as they attempt to solve the mystery on the Noodlemans' farm.

Read an Excerpt
Mr. Noodleman walked down the road to ask Farmer Hackett’s advice. Farmer Hackett’s eyes widened. “It’s not you,” he said. “It’s the ghost! Every night at the stroke of twelve, Boo Cow haunts your farm! The chickens must be too scared to lay eggs!”
Was it true? Could the farm be haunted?
