Boo! by Leslie Patricelli

I discovered Lelise Patricelli and her amazing board books about 10 years ago when my youngest was a year or so old. I have reviewed many of her books since then and wanted to revisit her unique sense of humor and illustration style, and her irrepressibly spazzy little baby-in-diapers character with her newest board book, BOO!

It's Halloween and our fearless diaper-baby is excited and busy! Picking pumpkins, getting covered in pumpkin goop, picking a costume and trick-or-treating with Dad are all on the agenda in BOO! Patricelli works wonderful images of all things Halloween into the story. There are fantastic two-page spreads of different Jack-O'-Lantern carvings and costumes to consider. In the end, baby and Dad go as ghosts, making for some very cute cuddling (or clinging in fear) scenes as the two head out into the night. Of course, the night ends happily with a candy bonanza and a happy baby!
