"Johnny Boo is the latest creation by the multi-talented James Kochalka. Watch as Johnny and Squiggle encounter the Ice Cream Monster for a 'party in his tummy' of a different kind! Fun for kids of all ages, it's AWESOME!" -- DJ Lance Rock, host of Nick Jr's Yo Gabba Gabba! "The narrative style is perfect, capturing all the nuances of how a childrenÍs book should be, and encompassing the free-flowing, inventive consciousness of a child ... Johnny Boo is a timeless tale, built on the basic tenet of childhood: fun. James Kochalka has a real talent for articulating all the fun and adventures to be had when one has the carefree mindset of the very young."-- Sabrina Fritz, School Library Journal Johnny Boo is the best little ghost in the whole world, because he's got Boo Power. This means that he can go "BOO"really loudly. His pet ghost named Squiggle has Squiggle Power, which means that he can fly and do really fast loop-the-loops. Together they have the world's greatest ghost adventures! They enthusiastically frolic and roughhouse, having ghost races and drinking melted ice cream, but they often accidently hurt each other's feelings, and have to comfort and console one another. When the giant pink and yellow Ice Cream Monster bumbles into their lives, they go into a mad panic ... until they discover that he's actually quite friendly. But even though he's friendly, he's also completely wild and unpredictable, and he impulsively swallows Squiggle whole. Some wild loop-the-loops from Squiggle inside his stomach cause a bout of uncontrollable burping, and the Ice Cream Monster burps Squiggle up unscathed. But now how do they stop the burping? Johnny Boo's Boo Power does the trick, of course. Everyone ends up happy, and delighted by the adventure they had together.

I have to say that I didn't think much of the story, and the pictures made me think that a child had drawn them, but they are very happy and colorful and my 4 year old son, who read the book out loud to me really loved it, and that's what counts. So, a good easy reader for little boys! Read full review

You have to read it out loud! I first read it to my son when he was 5 and he laughed the whole way through. My kindergartens and grade ones think it is hysterical. They love all the sound effects. It ... Read full review
