BOO, WHO USED TO BE SCARED OF THE DARK

Email this review

KIRKUS REVIEW

The "buck up, it's all nonsense, old man" attitude of Mr. Leaf has proven reassuring to the parents of children, and here, in lavish illustrations by Frances Tipton Hunter, and a healthy and sensible text, the long campaign continues for a healthy mind in a healthy body. Boo was a little boy who was afraid of lots of things, also the dark. But he had a cat who spoke to him, man to man, and who taught him that it was silly to be frightened. He even took away Boo's fear of the dark. Eye-catching, and merchandise-worthy in the big, bright illustrations of a darling boy and a cat, and with pleasant, alternating black and whites.
