Boo Who? is Ben Clanton's newest book and it's a return, plus one, to the characters from Rex Wrecks It!. Rex, Robot, Gizmo, Sprinkles and Wild are playing when a new friend wants to join in. Boo knows that, "being new can be scary, even when everyone is friendly." The gang tries to play with Boo, but the ball passes right through him when they play catch and hands pass through him when they play tag. Boo is about to give up and vanish all together when a game of hide-and-seek starts up and Boo discovers a game he can play!
Boo Who? is a great story for little listeners who are just learning the ins and outs of friendship. Clanton's illustrations are fantastic. His characters are quirky and cute and very expressive. With Boo the ghost, this could be a Halloween story, but Boo Who? is more than just a ghost story.
