The Little Ghost who Lost her Boo! product reviews

Proud to promote NZ products"I've lost my boo! I've lost my boo! Where has it gone? What will I do?"
Little Ghost has lost her boo, but she is determined to get it back, so she heads out to look for it. On her night-time hunt she meets a number of her friends, Owl, Pigeon, Rooster and Cow, and asks each of them if they've heard her boo. None of them has, although they are all very kind and offer Little Ghost their own sound instead. But nothing can replace her own scary boo, so she keeps on looking. In the end, it's the reader who finds it for her!

This is a fun, rhyming story with animal sounds that children will love to echo, and with stunning retro illustrations by Raymond McGrath.

Miss 21 Months is fast becoming addicted to reading - she loves the time spent with her parents as they read with her and enjoy her wonderful reactions. She is a bright child who loves colour and sound, and will happily listen to stories over and over without becoming tired of them, echoing repeated words with great delight and mimicking animal and bird sounds as they occur. The Little Ghost Who Lost Her Boo! is the latest book that she has reviewed with me, and it is fun to watch the steady progress in her interactions with the text.

Poor Little Ghost has lost her boo, and is on a quest to find out where it might be. Her friends are only too willing to help, but although they all make similar sounds and are fine if she wants to borrow theirs, they are just not right. In the process, each of them makes his or her own unique sound - which Miss 21 Months echoed with gusto, much to everyone's delight! She was especially intrigued by Owl, and happily repeated the Whoo!-Whoo!-Whoo! over and over. She also loved the section of the book where the reader is challenged to help Little Ghost, and willingly contributed a beautiful big BOO as requested.

The layout of the book is quite magical. Raymond McGrath's graphics are evocative, reflecting the curves of the bush surrounds and the half-light of Little Ghost's twilight world - yet they are charming rather than scary, and as Miss 21 Months' reactions showed, are pitched at just the right level for a very young audience. The text is written in rhyme; this technique encourages little ones to join in, first with the last word in each line, and then with the entire text as they become more familiar with it - and heaven help the older reader who tries to skip a word once that milestone has been reached!

When left to leaf through the book on her own, Miss 21 Months kept returning to the pages with the large image of Little Ghost looking at the reader. She was fascinated by the way Little Ghost appeared to be staring at her as she asked for help, and was only too happy to stare back. This is a book that she will enjoy for a long time, and no doubt read to her little brother once he is old enough to join in too.

Product image for The MovieScreenwriter Megan Silver is a waitress in an L.A. burger joint, and her life is going nowhere fast. But she has an idea worth a million dollars - if only she can get someone to read her script.

Supermodel Roxana Felix is the richest, bitchiest catwalk queen of them all. But it's not enough; she wants to be a movie star and she'll let nothing get in her way.
