Picture Book Review: Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli

Looking for your next read? Check out Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Anne A.

An adorable little pumpkin seed wants to be scary, but no one takes him seriously. When he says, “Boo,” the garden tools ignore him and the snow falls around him. The wind tells the little seed to be patient and wait for his time to be scary. The seasons change and the seed grows into a sprout and then into a pumpkin plant. Soon a pumpkin grows. It is harvested and becomes a jack-o’-lantern. Now when the jack-o’-lantern says “Boo,” everyone takes notice. The trick or treating children scream, and the cat runs away.

This delightful book is a fun Halloween story. It reminds kids that not everything happens instantly. Sometimes you must wait and be patient for your turn. Younger children will relate to Little Boo’s frustration of not being big enough to do certain activities. This wonderful story also shows the life cycle of a seed through whimsical and quirky illustrations as the seed grows into a pumpkin.

Little Boo can be checked out at any Fulton County Library. Borrow it today and have a spooky Halloween night!
