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.
