A Wee Boo

(2) PS Illustrated by Brooke Kerrigan. Pink-cheeked, wide-eyed ghost Wee Boo is too small and cute to be scary. At Ghost School, her teachers make allowances, but finally she's down to her last chance to earn her haunting license. In her assigned human household, no one pays Boo any attention except the baby, who thinks she's hilarious and laughs ­uproariously. The parents find that "kind of creepy" (they can't see Boo), which earns Boo her license at last. However, Boo realizes that what she really wants to be is the baby's imaginary friend. The book is snappily paced; Boo is an endearing protagonist; and the humor in both text and mixed-media art will keep readers engaged.
