It's tough being the new kid, and Boo has it harder than most. Despite finding a friendly group of youngstersâa fuzzy monster, a robot, a jolly T. rex, and a bunny with a unicorn hornâBoo has trouble fitting in. He's a ghost, which in and of itself isn't a problem. It's just the incorporeal part. He can't play bounce ball, because the ball soars right through him. Pick-up twigs and tag pose similar problems. As despair starts to settle over Boo, the other kids strike up a game that he happens to be amazing at: hide-and-seek. Clanton's simple story broaches common anxieties that come with being new, and he buoys it with a positive message of inclusion. His amiable illustrations, rendered in ink, pencil, watercolors, and "digital magic," will further allay children's fears as Booâa pale blue outline on the cream-colored pagesâbravely mingles with his new, candy-colored cohorts. The general playground setting makes this book appropriate for many "new" experiences, from school to camp to moving. A welcome, and welcoming, read. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
