Book Review :: Boo! by Ben Newman

Boo! - Ben Newman

"All the animals are keen to show off their bravery – from the crocodile with his mighty jaws, to the tiger with her scary claws! But who will be the bravest of them all?"

Flying Eye Books is such a pretty imprint.  Another beautiful matte cover, quirky cool illustrations and cute story.  There's a bit of a retro, timeless feel to Flying Eye books which we are lurving!  Boo! massively tickled Garland's fancy.  He thought it was hilaire.  He's five, mind you, which means that Newman has nailed the comedy-for-small-children bracket.  For my part, I loved the bold, stylised illustrations.  Very cool.  The text is minimal so that's another points win, for those preferring the shorter length bedtime tomes.  I can go either way on that one, but it's always best to have a few short-and-sweets' on the shelves, particularly if one child has requested a Magic Schoolbus book, amiright?!

Here's the very cute book trailer if you want to take a sneak peek!

Overall, we adore this book!  It's been strictly on the favourites list since arrival, and it's available now in bookstores, so check it out!
