Trick or Treat! Glowing jack-o'-lanterns. Haunted houses. Scary monsters and spooky shadows. What is more fun than Halloween? This collection of twelve lively poems, perfect for reading aloud, is a delightful chronicle of a family's adventures on that favorite of holidays. No tricks here -- Nancy White Carlstrom's exuberant rhymes and R. W. Alley's bright and busy pictures make Who Said Boo? a pure treat for the youngest Halloween celebrants.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3?Shadows and sounds of the night are colorfully presented in this, yet another addition to the Halloween poetry shelf. While there's nothing particularly new here, Who Said Boo? is a pleasing presentation. Carlstrom's rhymes are effective for reading aloud?with some especially nice sound effects included. Masquerading is a big theme here, always wondering who's behind the mask or who made that sound. In one poem, a lurking, ominous big black shadow turns out to be just daddy on the staircase. In another, that cryptic noise is only somebody snoring. Parents are ever present to protect against the demons of the unknown. In this book, Halloween is a playful time, with some underlying creepiness, of course, but mainly a time for fun, frolicking, and family. Alley's illustrations perk up the action as children visit a haunted house, carve a jack-o-lantern, and attend a Halloween carnival. Color bleeds off the pages, filling the entire spread. The faces of the youngsters evoke surprise and wonder delightfully. There's a whole lot of mood and activity packed into these pages. The very brief poems would make nice reading for a Halloween program, party, or story hour.?Sharon Korbeck, formerly at Milwaukee Public Library

From Booklist:

Ages 3^-6. The verse is simple, full of action, rhyme, and physicality that small kids will love. The watercolor pictures are very bright and very detailed; in fact, they are sometimes a bit too busy and too mixed-up for the audience. What toddlers will enjoy is the delicious scariness of somebody tapping at the window in "Haunted House" ("Are you afraid? ooo-ooo" ) and the nonsense rhyme of "Did Mama say Boo? / No, Mama said Shoe. . . ." Hazel Rochman
