Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a night of haunting, Boo the little ghost is wide awake! But Mama Ghost knows just what to do to help Boo fall asleep. "Listen," she says, and Boo slowly dozes off to the comforting creaks and squeaks of the house. This lullaby-like picture book has the lyrical beauty of Margaret Wise Brown and is the perfect bedtime read.

Review:

"In debut author Matheis's twist on a conventional bedtime story, a chubby, cherubic ghost named Boo lives with his family in a dilapidated house. After a fun night of flying and spooking, it's time for bed. Coaxing Boo to sleep, his curly-haired Mama tucks him in, urging him to 'Listen to the sounds of the house,' including the ghosts whooshing by, bats flapping, and black cats hissing. Leick's characterizations of the ghosts, witches, mummies, and more are so gentle that even skittish readers will feel cozy, not creeped-out, at book's end. Ages 2 — up."

About the Author

MICKIE MATHEIS lives in a ghost-free but nonetheless spirited home in northeast Ohio with her husband and three young children. Growing up, the sound that soothed her to sleep at night was the furnace kicking on, which is still one of her favorite house sounds—along with the sleepy chatter of her children at bedtime. Mickie has written numerous licensed titles for young readers. Bedtime for Boo is her first original book.
